    Default Southern American accent transcription

    Hello guys. I need help with this last transcription, this time itīs Southern American accent. Itīs really hard for me to catch some words.. So could you please write here what is that old guy saying from 1:10 to 1:35? Starting "I was scared to death ..." and ending "... what do you mean, sonny?".

    I hear this so far: I was scared to death. About that time, my brother Frank came down in the south of the house, what is basicaly ---- front yard and dropped the bicycle and said.. u know.. whats goin on?? -----. And so Mr.... said: Your brother has ----- im honna give him a weapon..... And so my brother Frank said: No Sir , He said What do you mean sonny?
    Thanks a lot!

And so Mr Almond(?) said: Your brother has laid open my son's head and I'm gonna give him a weapon whipping..... And so my brother Frank said "No Sir" , He said "What do you mean sonny? "
    Ok, this was a tough nut to crack.
    I slowed down the whole thing with an audio editor and the the thing is more clear now.
    You can download the part in question here:
