The Lyrics

This was written by Bob Dylan, but I have only heard the Byrds version of it
Mind's not swift, chins won't lift
Mouth don't close, bowels froze
Bout half blind, cough all the time
You ain't growin no hair

Chorus

Ooh wee, bide your time
Tomorrow's the day
Rogain is gonna come
Oh no, are you gonna try
Growin some greasy hair

I don't care just how much
Money you sent
The free trial came
The free trial went
Lost all your money
Still a bald gent
You ain't growin no hair

Chorus

Gout is acute and
Your bum just poots
Shiny pate is not too cute
Treat yourself to
Some plugs with roots
You ain't growin no hair

Chorus

Now Memphis John
He had no hair
Except the ring
Around his pair
He got his plugs
But now people stare
When they get close to him

Johnny, I sure don't. I don't naviget the web very well, and don't know how to find samples. Sorry

Good job, Dee...5's. Johnny D - I have a version by the Byrds, not their original one from the "Sweethearts of the Rodeo" album, but a "Live" version from a couple years later that I think has about the same lyrics and basic pacing, except they have slightly longer instrumental parts - where the guitar players do a bit of fancy pickin'
