I guess that's the name of the song. I heard it on the radio tonight, but I was in my car and drove out of the stations signal range before I could find out who sang it. Anyway, the chorus is: What's the man's name? Hinky Dinky Dee, He's a real bad man but he can't catch me. A great big bag and a great big hoe (something something something last word rhymes with oh). Anyone know this one? Any recordings available? The one I heard was by a bluegrass band. Thanks, Steve.

Hi, Steve - I'm guessing it's a song called "Hinky Dinky Dee" by a bluegrass band called One Riot, One Ranger.
...but that's just a guess.

Yes, It's "Hinky Dinky Dee" which is a traditional song recorded by "One Riot One Ranger". It's available on a 2002 compilation called "The Bottle Let Me Down" (which, amusingly enough, given the title, is for young children).

Here's the information from the liner notes:

Hinky Dinky Dee
One Riot One Ranger
Trad.; PD; arrangement by One Riot One Ranger; addtn'l lyrics by C. Williams

Paul Brown - banjo, vocals
Mark Gaskill - guitar, vocals
Peter Remenyi - resonator guitar, vocals

[By the way, yes, I realize this is an old post, but this web page is the *ONE* hit on the internet currently for "Great big bag and a great big hoe".]

"Hinky-Dinky-Dee" is hardly traditional. It's most probably a vaudeville song, though I haven't been able to trace it back beyond its first recording by Dan Hornsby's Novelty Quartet (Columbia 15444-D, recorded April 14, 1929).

Hornsby later re-recorded it as a member of Gid Tanner & His Skillet Lickers, Bluebird B-5633, Montgomery Ward M-4844, March 20, 1934.

It has a style and sound typical of recordings of the 1912-20 era, and I would not be surprised to find that someone like Billy Murray originated it.

A great deal that became Golden Age old time country music started out on the vaudeville stage and was recorded by companies like Edison and Victor from the turn of the century on.

I found a couple of audio samples of the One Riot One Ranger version and was able to transcribe this much:

Hawk and the buzzard went to war.
Hawk came back with a broken jaw.
Hawk and the buzzard see the crow.
Ain't gonna go to war no more.

[CHORUS] What's the man's name? Hinky-Dinky-Dee.
Mighty bad man but he can't catch me.
Great big bag and a great big hoe.
See him comin' and away we go.

Here's all the lyrics:


CHORUS:
What's the man's name Hinky Dinky Dee
Mighty bad man but he can't catch me
Great big bag and a great big hoe
See him comin' and away we go

Horse and a flea and two little mice
Sittin' in a corner, shootin' dice
Horse foot slipped and he fell on the flea
Flea says "BOO there's a horse on me!"

[CHORUS]

Mandolin! (spoken during instrumental)

Hawk and the buzzard went to war
Hawk came back with a broken jaw
Hawk and the buzzard see the crow
Ain't gonna go to war no more

[CHORUS]

Dobro! (spoken during instrumental)

Rabbit jumped up with a great big smile
Hound dog running a solid mile
Rabbit's foot slipped and he said "Oh me!
I believe right now that the joke's on me!"

[CHORUS]

Guitar! (spoken during instrumental)

Was an old man and he had a wooden leg
Had no bananas nor bananas could he beg
Saved all his money till he couldn't save no more
Now he's got bananas and a big banana store

[CHORUS]

Banjo! (spoken during instrumental)

Man took drink of milk one day
"Good ol' cow!" is what he had to say
Man took cow and a dish and a spoon
And away they ran jumped over the moon

[CHORUSx2]

See him comin' and away we go.
