The Lyrics

I'm herding swine. I live inside a shack.
I hang the hind-quarters of cows right next to my gun rack.
I lost some teeth. In fact, I have lost them all.
But if you need some music, well then just give me a call.

When there is no cheap man and no man cheap enough to hire.
Then call on me--I'm hot, just like my hound dog on fire.

Playing my banjo.
Playing with my banjo.

Pay me enough, and I will play stuff.
Pay me enough, and I will play stuff.
Pay me enough, and I will play stuff.
Pay me enough, and I will play stuff.

I need to find some members for my band.
Harmonica's and comb whistles are in high demand.
I'll be the singer 'cause I have that southern voice.
Now grab a hand and swing your partner 'round and 'round
and lets rejoice.

Playing my banjo.
Playing with my banjo.

Some people laugh and point at me and call me "stupid hic".
Then I reply to them that I won't let the insults stick.
My family is helping me retain some of my dignity.
Especially my cousin who also happens to be my loving wife.

Playing my banjo.
I'm playing with my banjo.
Playing my banjo.
(Pay me enough, and I will play stuff.)
I'm playing with my banjo.
(Pay me enough, and I will play stuff.)
Playing my banjo.
(Pay me enough, and I will play stuff.)
Playing my banjo.
(Pay me enough, and I will play stuff.)
Playing with my banjo.

Good song choice; this was way overplayed a while back...

It was indeed, but with good reason. I love Train. As for the parody, it was ... better than I'd expected! Nice job, Bob. hey that rhymes ..
