Didn't the Holy Modal Rounders do a variant of this song with a refrain that went something like this?

And it's ooh Lordy me, and it's ooh Lordy my,
[Repeat last phrase of preceding stanza.]


For example:

Old Ruben came to town just as the sun went down,
The shirt on his back was all he owned.
So he took a razor blade and he hid out in the shade,
And he started him a graveyard of his own.
And it's ooh Lordy me, and it's ooh Lordy my,
He started him a graveyard of his own.


Sound familiar to anyone?
