Wow, this brings back some memories. A folk group I sang in in high school (Monroe High School Folk Arts Society, 1964-65, pretty catchy name) sang that song and a relatively clean version of Reilly's Daughter as our "racy" songs. Now who wrote it? I am going out on a limb, becasue I can't find any documentation, and suggest that it might be Billy Edd Wheeler. It is not on any of the three BEW lp's I have. I just bought a BEW songbook last week, but it hasn't arrived in the mail yet. I know the hihg school group got the song from the Modern Folk Quartet album, but I also recall that the song was not new to me with that recording. I think it might have been recorded by him on an album that also had a song about a wasp ("Well a wasp is hardly bigger than a fly/ But oh man how he stings a guy/ Stings a guy and waves bye-bye...."). Unfortunately I am relying on synapses that have lain dormant for many years.
