Origins: Big Red Combine Harvester song

Our lady vicar has been getting a Harvest Service together for the children, using a bit of online technology for our Village Facebook.
One of the songs she chose was 'Big Red Combine Harvester', so I listened to it on Youtube. Now, I've been going to church for over sixty years, and was a teacher for thirty, but have never heard this song before. Anyone know it? When was it composed?
It epitomises for me Norfolk in all its glory, because we have so many combine harvesters chugging up and down the fields, massive wonderful machines.
WARNING! It's the most infectious EAR WORM imaginable, so don't go there if some songs uncontrollably invade your brain!!

Oh well done cnd! Thank you. So it's been around for over a decade but I'd never heard it before.
Our neighbour services and repairs combines, and during harvest-time (which is long over now) he is on call, as the blooming things seem to break down a lot.
I've been humming/singing the song for days now - very catchy!

And there I was, thinking your lady vicar was teaching the tinies to sing The Wurzels' best-known opus "Combine Harvester". Now, that would be a performance to remember!
