Subject: RE: Pheasant Plucker
The version I know of the song you are referring to is descended from the American school of blues. The CD I have it on is out on loan at the moment, so I can't look up the exact title, (or lyrics -- sorry!) but it IS taken from the first line of the chorus -- that being, "Stick out your can, here comes the garbage man."
