GUEST,Gern Lyr Req: That's My Paw (10) RE: That's My Paw 17 Oct 02

Yes I do, master of useless information that I am. I believe it was recorded by Sheb Wooley, country singer and brief regular on the original Hee-Haw TV show. History files his name next to the novelty hit "Flying Purple People Eater." He sometimes recorded comedy material under the name of Ben Colder, and there are some great drunken parodies of country hits like "I Walk the Line," "Folsom Prison Blues" and "Skip a Rope" under that name. But I think "That's My Paw" is listed under Sheb Wooley's name. That laughin yodel of his on this song reminds me of the Fendermen's version of "Muleskinner Blues." Perhaps the oracle of Masato can provide more details. By the way, Guest Don, I congratulate your sucessful transcription of "Hoop bobba dooba wahba." The Japanese could have used you in World War II to crack the Navy's Navaho code.
