I found a couple of sound samples at allmusic, and here's what I think I hear:

Come, get your wiener 'cause it's always hot,
Wiener in the middle and mustard on top.
Easy Rider, don't you know my name?
...
Down on the river, settin' on a log,
Singin' a song called Salty Dog.
Easy Rider, don't you know my name?

*
My first impression: This is the kind of song Doc Watson would do, but I can't find any evidence that he did it. Maybe under a different title, with different words?

Lyr ADD: Easy Rider by Sam McGee

Guitar Intro (Same chords as Salty Dog)

Standin' on the corner with a dollar in my hand
Just lookin' for a woman that ain't got no man.
Oh Easy Rider, don't you know my name?

(Guitar break between verses)

Down on the river, settin' on a log,
Singin' a song called Salty Dog.
Oh Easy Rider, don't you know my name?

Ain't but one thing bother my mind
A world full of women and none are mine.
Easy Rider, don't you know my name?

Come, get your wiener 'cause it's always hot,
Wiener in the middle and mustard on top.
Easy Rider, don't you know my name?

Longer Guitar break

Two little children lyin' in bed
One turned over to the other and said,
"You ain't nothing but my salty dog."

Longer Guitar break

Two little children playin' in the sand
Run and tell you mama you're the new *grave man
Easy Rider, don't you know my name?

God made a woman and He made her kinda funny
Juice around her mouth as sweet as any honey,
Easy Rider, don't you know my name?

It's like lookin' for a needle in a pile of sand
Tryin' to find a woman that ain't got no man
Oh Easy Rider, don't you know my name?

*Lyric hard to understand

This version is related to Salty Dog. It has lyrics associated with Salty Dog and the same chord progression.
