The Purple People Eater:Sheb Wooley.
#1 in 1958.

#1.(Original keys. Check it out on YouTube.)
D
Well, I saw the thing comin' out of the sky,
       A              D     
it had one long horn, one big eye.
                             G
I commenced to shakin' and I said "ooh-eee!",
   A                                   D
It looks like a purple people eater to me.

CHORUS:
D
It was a one-eyed, one-horned, flyin' purple people eater.
 A
(One-eyed, one-horned, flyin' purple people eater)
  D
A one-eyed, one-horned, flyin' purple people eater.
A                     D
Sure looks strange to me. (One eye?)

I said, "Mr. Purple People Eater, don't eat me."

I said, "Mr. Purple People Eater, what's your line?"
          B                                E
He said, "It's eatin' purple people and it sure is fine.
                                 A
But that's not the reason that I came to land..
  B                                  E
I wanna get a job in a rock and roll band."

And then he swung from the tree and he lit on the ground,
   B                       E
He started to rock, really rockin' around.
