My longtime friend Ted Cheek, a highly successful Montgomery businessman, is convinced that he also is a great songwriter. Ted, who is a look-a-like of the fabulous, but now departed, Johnny Cash, sent me a song he wrote recently that he says is about my “life in court.” He insisted that it be included in the Report and in a weak moment, I agreed to do so.
The Big Man
Just a country boy from Alabama
He had a great big heart
The champion of the little man
That’s how he got his start
He stood tall when things got rough and
When it hit the fan
He had the gall to hang in there and
Help the little man
The big man has made his stand
He gave the little man a helping hand
The little man is a bigger man
The big man is a better man
As time moved on this country boy
Learned to play the game and
As he would hit his fortune
He made himself a name
But he always knew where he came from
Back when he farmed the land and
Made a vow that he’d step out
And help the little man
At first he tried at politics and
Thought he’d reach the top
But when he almost made it
He decided he would stop
How could he help the little folks
And be an also ran? He started filing
Lawsuits to help the little man
The moral of this story is simple as can be
The country boy from Alabama
Had made us plainly see
That no matter where we travel
You’ll stand on sinking sand
If you don’t take a little time
To help the little man
Composed by: Ted Cheek
If you believe that Ted should give up his day job and head to Nashville, you can let me know and I will pass your suggestions on to him. However, I must confess that I liked this song. When I finally see my life in court winding down, which I hope is at least eight more years down the road, it’s my hope that folks will say I really did work to help the “little man.” God knows I tried!
