Ah, good ol’ Sheb Wooley & his #1 hit, Purple People Eater, back in 1958. We’d sing it on the school bus on the way home. Sheb also known as Pete in Rawhide (Clint Eastwood was Rowdy Yates in the same show.) Sheb also performed as Ben Colder who sang parodies of hit country songs. Example: Johnny Cash: Because she’s mine, I walk the line. Ben: I paid the fine, I couldn’t walk the line.
