Looking for a Flatt & Scruggs song - "When that old age pension check comes through the door" of which I know two verses, assume there are one or two more. Thanks for your help!

Here you go:

OLD AGE PENSION CHECK
(Roy Acuff)

When the old age pension check comes to our door
We won't have to dread the poor house any more
Though we're old and bent and grey
Good times will be back to stay
When our old age pension check comes to our door

When the old age pension check comes to our door
Dear old grandma won't be lonesome any more
She'll be waiting at the gate
Every night she'll have a date
When her old age pension check comes to her door

Grow a flowing long white beard and use a cane
'Cause you're in your second childhood don't complain
Life will just begin at sixty
And we'll all feel very frisky
When our old age pension check comes to our door

Powder and paint will be abolished on that day
Ankle skirts will then be brought back into play
Faded cheeks will be the rage
And old maids will tell their age
When our old age pension check comes to our door

All the drugstores will go bankrupt on that day
For cosmetics they will all be put away
I'll put the flapper on the shelf
And get a grandma for myself
When our old age pension check comes to our door

There's a man that turned this country upside down
With his old age pension rumour going round
If you want in on the fun
Send your dime to Washington
And the old age pension man will be around

I'm pretty sure that the original recording was Roy Acuff but I don't have an exact reference. (Stewie-- if you've got the liner notes to the NLCR they usually gave a Discography) Great song!
