I believe Roger Miller made up the first version of the "Twine" song, and though I've never heard Johnny sing it, Roger did sing it to Johnny on the Johnny Cash Show.

Obviously others have made variations on Roger's version, but I believe he was the first. The New Christie Minstrels learned it from Roger and popularized it in the mid-sixties.
