Been trying to find the author of this song for a long time.

and just tonight realized Asleep at the Wheel does a cover so I could finally get the actual title. my god I am a DOOFUS. I had tried a few time to search with some of the lyrics that I could remember but never got anywhere.

My Last Meal by Jimmy Rogers (1959)

Well, I heard the warden said
I had one more day
One last meal before they carried me away

He said if we don't got it
We'll go out an' get it
Because you don't have to go
Til we get back with it
So I said, 'Hmmm'

A-bring me two dinosaur eggs over easy
Fried in the butter an' not too greasy
Mosquito knees and black-eyed peas
An' a little side dish of buttered bee-bop beans
I want-a sabre tooth-a tiger steak
An whole hippopotamus, well baked

Now go, get my dinner, go
Get my dinner
You ain't got it, go out and get it
'Cause I ain't goin', til ya get back with it

Now bring me a cup of crocodile tears
Purple watermelon an some alligator ears
An bring me two cross-eyed cat fish
An some wavy gravy in a left-hand dish

Now go, get my dinner, go
Get my dinner
You ain't got it, go out an get it
'Cause I ain't goin', til ya get back with it

Now bring me a order of rattlesnake hips
The split of his tongue bring me both of his lips
Now ya have my order so serve my dish
With a female banana I just can't resist

Now go, get my dinner, go
Get my dinner
You ain't got it, go out an get it
'Cause I ain't goin', til ya get back with it

Go on, get it now
Don't worry about me, cause I ain't goin' nowhere

Hey! Don't forget the hot sauce!
