The Ways ’em Ole Yankees Was

I guess they probably was some truth about Northern New Englanders (we’d call ’em, “ole Yankees”) of my time bein’ different. They’d want to know yah business but, they didn’t want yah to know theirs.

Let’s say if yah was new to town, they might invite yah over for dinner, just to find out about yah. Then, dependin’ on the opinion they made about yah and yah business, the dinner would be over pretty darned quick. And, if they saw yah on the street they might speak to yah or, they might never speak to yah again!

They’d leave yah to wonderin’ what yah did to offend them. Twant nothin’. They was just different.
