A Hilarious Classic

While singing along to the tune of “Pfft You Were Gone” – a Hee Haw original – we see a silly side of country music legends we’ve never seen before. Hope you’re prepared for a couple good laughs!

One of Hee Haw‘s most beloved cast members, Archie Campbell was known for singing his hit, “Pfft You Were Gone” alongside visiting guests on the show. In his usual straw hat and overalls, he amused the audience with his hysterical ways. On the special, Campbell explains,

“After a few years, we decided to bring in our guests and have a little fun with ‘Pfft You Were Gone’ too. We have a film clip of some of the stars who have appeared with us and some of ’em are gonna really surprise you. So, you watch closely.”

A Series Of Legends

The first clip showcases the talented Charley Pride rockin’ the straw hat and overalls look, crushing some twangy harmonies alongside Campbell.

Lorne Greene made his hilarious appearance singing the tune even though his specialty was definitely acting! It wasn’t long before country legends like Loretta Lynn and Tammy Wynette were making their debut.

The four-minute long clip shows an array of country artists “pfft-ing” in each other’s faces followed by mischievous smiles.

Toward the end of the clip, we see Johnny Cash and Campbell singing back to back. As Cash starts to sing solo, Campbell’s eyes get real big. Next thing you know – the music legend was throwing a pie in Campbell’s face just in time for his “pfft, you were gone” line.

Remembering Hee Haw star, Archie Campbell (November 7, 1914 – August 29, 1987) on his Birthday. He is pictured here with Johnny Cash.
