Here's a YouTube video:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a5Xq6wlT1x4

Here's a start:

Guitar picker, spellbinder, fancy dancer, sidewinder,
Fixing dollar watches with ninety-nine cent tools;
Apple picker, agitator, [cotton driver?], alligator,
[Livin' daddy longlegs?] with the five and ten cent blues.

-Joe-

I thank heaven every day for Charles and Bob and Lawrence and others, who helped me assemble a near-complete collection of Sing Out! Magazine. I finally organized it all a couple of weeks ago when I had the flu, and it has been helpful time and time again since then. Thanks, friends!


FIVE & TEN CENT BLUES
(Andy Cohen)

Guitar picker, spellbinder
Fancy dancer, sidewinder
Fixin' dollar watches with ninety-nine cent tools
Apple picker, agitator
Truck driver, alligator
Livin' daddy long legs with the five and ten cent blues

Good mornin' silver sunup
Took all night for you to come up
Rollin' down to Dixie on a sweet roll and a song
Hitch-hikin', half crazy
Blind stupid, bum lazy
Waitin' for a long while to bid St. Lou so long

Rosy mornin', bare trees
Old man ridin' on a cold breeze
Overcast and underpaid and nothin' much to lose
Telephone poles and empty fields
Cold days and hot wheels
Flyin' birds and flowin' words and the five and ten cent blues

Pipefitter, bullshitter
Baby sitter, early quitter
Can't find her, don't mind her droppin' in for tea
Post facto, exacto
Back to back and black to go
A quarter's worth of flowers and a nickel's worth of me

Cold weather, don't mind it
Goin' where the sun shines
I'm rollin' down to Dixie in my oldest pair of shoes
Broke down, don't panic
Guitar picker turned mechanic
Hand me down the pliers and the five and ten cent blues

©1975 by Andy Cohen

From Sing Out! Magazine, Volume 24, Number 3 (1975), page 25

Many thanks Joe. That's where I first heard the song. Isn't that the issue where Utah Philips does a Teach In on how to hop a freight?
