On the outskirts of Tallahassee,
there was a big old pecan tree just inside the cemetery fence. One day, two boys filled up a bucketful of nuts and sat down by the tree, out of sight, and began dividing up the nuts. "One for you, one for me. One for you, one for me.",said one boy. Meanwhile, several nuts dropped and rolled down toward the fence. Another boy came riding along the road on his bicycle. As he passed, he thought he heard voices inside the cemetery. He slowed down to listen better. Sure enough, he heard, . "One for you, one for me. One for you, one for me." He knew just what it was. He jumped back on his bike and rode off. Just around the corner he met an old man with a cane hobbling along.
"Come here, quick," said the boy, "you won't believe what I heard! Satan and the Lord are down at the cemetery dividing up the souls." The old man said, "Beat it, kid, can't you see its hard for me to walk." When the boy insisted, though, the man hobbled to the cemetery. Standing by the fence together, they heard, "One for you, one for me. One for you, one for me." "One for me." the old man whispered, boy, you've been telling the truth. Let's see if we can see the lord." Shaking with fear, they peered through the fence yet were still unable to see anything. The old man and the boy gripped the wrought iron bars of the fence tighter and tighter as they tried to get a glimpse of the Lord. At last they heard, "One for you, one for me. One for you, one for me, now lets go get those nuts down by the fence and we'll be done here." They say the old man made it back to town a full five minutes ahead of the boy on the bike.
