A song's name problem

Hello all you music lovers.

I've been trying to find a specific song name from years ago but failed miserably, so I hope one of you learned people can help.

The song was about an American cattle auction where the auctioneer rapped out the current bids in a very fast way. I do believe the lyrics, at one point, included the phrase "A 50 Dollar Bill".

Any help or suggestions much appreciated.

Could it possibly be Gordon Lighfoot - The Auctioneer?

Thanks all for the replies. Finally got the version that was needed (long story so won't go into that).

It's the version by Dave Stamey.
