"An Old Straw Hat [From Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm]" as written by and Mack/revel Gordon....
I was born in a small town
But I'm livin' in a big town
They gave me a top hat and cane
In trade for a shady lane
Well, I'll give you back your big town
If you'll give me back a small town
Keep your top hats and canes
Give me those prairies and plains

If I had one wish to make
This is the wish I would choose
I'd want an old straw hat
A suit of overalls
And a worn out pair of shoes

Just let me roam around
Laughing at big city blues
With an old straw hat
A suit of overalls
And a worn out pair of shoes

Howdy Mister Brown
Ho hum
Goin' fishin'
Hope you get a bite

Howdy Mister Jones
Ho hum
How's about a hay ride
Saturday night?

Sing: "Heigh ho,
The merrio"
What have you got
What have you got to lose?

Get an old straw hat
A suit of overalls
And a worn out, musty
Rusty, dusty
Pair of shoes
