Dallas R. Evans we know him as "IT"
From a Bean Ridge clam closely knit
When put on a dozer back in Calhoun
We knew he'd be special and very soon...
He moved up quickly to run the show
A greater motivator we'll never know
Few earthly mortals possess his charm
His character to serve and do no harm...
In MacFarlan the town
His second love the Nashville sound
They soon would find
Before they're done...
His native wit always sharp and quick
Will walk a mile to pull a good trick
He can pull your leg or con the best
Surely one of a kind but all in jest...
It takes courage strength and will
To play the rolls he's had to fill
To build the ship and make it run
Many many times while under the gun...
With each new job he wears the face
Gets things laid out and sets the pace
He follows through to see it's done
Many tough battles he's fought and won...
Whatever he does he does it his way
The drum he hears he tells what to say
If we'd had his charm and native wit
In the Governor's chair we'd surely sit...
