Question
Trying to find a song, possibly 70's, with lyrics "I'm a man.....I smell ham...   
Possibly has harmonica between parts of lyrics
Thank you

Answer
Hi Marty,

I think you may have misheard the lyrics to "I'm A Man" written by Bo Diddley and made popular by The Yardbirds in 1965.  I think what you're hearing as "I smell ham" is the part of the song where they sing "I spell man, M-A-N".  Here is a link to a YouTube recording of the song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JAdCePtwoW4

Thanks,
