When he comes to call
My pa ain't got a good word to say.
Guess it's cause he's just a wild
In the younger day.
I am more familiar with Linda Rondstat's version of this song, in which the
last line is sung as "in his younger days."
As for the third line, what I hear (at least with Ms. Rondstat) is "I guess
it's 'cause he-uz just as wild," "he-uz" being a western contraction for
"he was." The "u" should probably be a schwa, actually.
