Them Banjo Pickers, from Them Poems, by Mason Williams

Posted by Don Borchelt on Friday, March 14, 2008

Them Banjo Pickers
Mighty funny ways
Same damn song
Three or four days

Them Banjo Pickers
All they know
Cumberland Gap

Them banjo pickers
Talkin' 'bout strings
Banjo pegs
Other such things

Them Banjo pickers
Poker-faced mugs
Never do smile
Jist play Scruggs

Them Banjo Pickers
Sure are nice
Place each song
At least twice

Them Banjo Pickers
Never git sick
Pickin' them Banjos
Pick, Pick, Pick..

I always enjoyed his book of poems...very out in left field.   My favorite was "Them Lunch Toters."  A friend of mine used to recite "Lunch Toters" while I ham-boned--sort of a red-neck version of rap.  :^)

Does anyone out there have a recording of "Classical Gas" that I could download? That is one of the finest pieces of string work to ever pass through my ears! From the first time I heard it on TV waaaaaay back there, it has stuck with me!
