Does anyone know who actually wrote this song? It has been contributed to Roy Clark, Buck Owens, Alan Campbell, and Bill Thompson. My husband met Bill Thompson and I was wondering if he was the actual one. Anyone know?

@rda,
I'm pretty sure that Buck Owens wrote it. At least he is credited with all the lyrics of it I've seen. (Used to use it a lot in skits.)

And thanks. Now I'm going to have the damn song stuck in my head all day!!!!

@rda,
The Hee Haw tune "Where oh where are you tonight?", was written by Samuel Bickley "Bix" Reichner Was born in 1906 in Overbrook, a neighborhood on Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania's South Hills area. He worked as a crime reporter for a West Philadelphia newspaper for 25 years while writing lyrics on and off. He wrote lyrics and tunes for a lot of major artists during his lifetime. He wrote lyrics for Hee Haw for the last 20 years of his life. He passed away April 9th, 1989.
