On the outskirts of a small town, there was a big old pecan tree just
inside the cemetery fence. One day, two boys filled a bucketful of
nuts and sat down by the tree, out of sight, and began dividing the
nuts.

"One for you, one for me, one for you, one for me," said one boy. A couple 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 from inside the cemetery. He slowed to
investigate. Sure enough, he heard, "One for you, one for me, one
for you, one for me.."

He just knew what it was. He jumped on his bike and rode off. Just
around the bend 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 the
souls!"

So the old man hobbled slowly to the cemetery, with the boy close
behind him.

When they got to the fence they stood still and heard, "One for you,
one for me. One for you, one for me."

The old man whispered, "Boy, you've been tellin' me 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. That's all. Now let's go get those two nuts by the fence and we'll be done".

They say the old man had the lead for a good half-mile before the kid on the bike passed him.
