No, the song wasn't written by The Wurzels, who had a huge United Kingdom hit with it in 1976, but by Irish comedian Brendan Grace, who went to Number One in Ireland a year earlier with the rustic version of Melanie's Brand New Key.
The Father Ted star passed away peacefully just after midnight, his family say.
The news comes a week after the veteran comedian and singer revealed that he has lung cancer.
Born in Dublin, divided his time between a home in West Palm Beach, Florida, and his pub in Killaloe, County Clare, the aptly named "Brendan Grace's Bar". He did so, surrounded by the profound and everlasting love of his heartbroken family.
May he rest in peace.
He added: "We can look back with pride on Brendan's lifetime".
Brendan had been in hospital in recent weeks receiving treatment for pneumonia, and was also receiving ongoing care and treatment for cancer.
He has had a number of health issues in recent years and suffered a stroke and complications from diabetes. It also led to gangrene and the loss of some of his toes.
His most famous acting role was in Father Ted, but he also had a successful stand-up career in both the U.S. and Ireland. Previous year he was the subject of a documentary on Irish state broadcaster RTE.
As a musician, Grace's impressive string of hits included, most notably, the chart-topping Irish song Combine Harvester, which was later covered by The Wurzels.
Grace is survived by his wife Eileen, who he married in 1973, their four children and their grandchildren.
