Ever Present in Yoknapatawpha?: 

In Light in August Christmas runs into this boy when he first arrives in the county. "Swinging a tin bucket," "barefoot," and wearing "faded, patched, scant overalls" (227, 228), he answers Christmas' questions by telling him "where Miz Burden stay at" and that "colored folks around here looks after her" (227). As he walks away, he sings a risque song.
