Exactly Jim. Them Poems. And I'm sure I wrote this one.
I'll guess Mason Williams' "Them Poems", some of which we know popped up on Back In Town . Turns out Williams had a whole LP with 22 of them: https://www.discogs.com/release/7070572-Mason-Williams-Them-Poems
Sung to the tune of..........? MTABob
I just found this in my files. I THINK I wrote it.
How ‘bout them folksingers, ain’t they stars
Picking on their banjos, strumming their guitars
Hanging up Tom Dooley, sinking Reuben James
Singing ‘bout all sorts of things, even naughty dames
How to be a folk singer, easy to become it
Buy yourself a Martin, then sit down and strum it
With apologies to Mason Williams
