I think you mostly had to use your imagination with all of Slim's speak!

I have one record of his (Son of McVouty, I think) and a few tracks on compilations, and from memory he seemed to insert the vout-speak words at random to mean anything. As I recall, vout, reet and o-rooney appear quite frequently, and in combinations.
