Naaaa.. the women were bitchin' about demon tobacco way back before they stuffed Prince Albert into a can.

I was wondering how many other dudes sang this song. I knew of 3, Tex Ritter, Jimmy Dean, and Merle Travis so I went over to YouTube and got surprised at just how many people have done this one!

I always liked the Commander Cody and the Lost Planet Airmen version.

Would you classify this song as Country Rap?

On the other side of the ashtray is Jerry Reed's "Another Puff."

I prefer Phil Harris' version, myself. Grand tune, though.
