She may have begun in the early forties --
Our favorite hillbilly girlfriend,
A star of early day country comedy --
I once thought I saw her on a Nashville street corner --
She won all our hearts with her anecdotes
We all loved the price tag that hung from her hat --
We won't forget "Howdy, so glad to be here,"
Her friend Waggoner has become a colorful host
If Tex Ritter, Hank Williams and Ernest Tubb were here,
He would do it in the manner of George D. Hay --
Hee-Haw's Junior Samples might resemble Stringbean,
