MEDICINE FOR FEVER

WHEN I WAS A LITTLE GIRL ABOUT FIVE OR SIX YEARS OLD, I
USE TO HAVE CHILLS AND FEVER QUITE A BIT. AND THINGS (BEING)
LIKE THEY WERE THEY DIDN'T HAVE DRUGS LIKE THEY DO NOW. THEY
USUALLY HAD TO USE OLD REMENTS AND THINGS LIKE THAT. AND MY MOTHER
WOULD ALWAYS USE COPABUDS FOR FEVER. TAKE THE ROOTS AND PEEL IT.
AND WE'D CHEW THAT... WELL THIS IS SOMETHING THAT GROWS OUT IN THE
COTTON FIELD. IT HAVE A BUD ON IT. / YOU KNOW LITTLE STICKLE BUD.
AND THIS THING GROW UP TO REAL TALL AND THIS WHEN IT BUDS. BUT
BEFORE THEN IT'S A LITTLE BITTY GREEN THING AND THAT'S WHEN YOU USE
THE MEDICINE PART OF IT.
