Looking for a cover of "Thank God I'm A Country Boy," in Hebrew.

In the early nineties, while working on a farm in Israel, I used to listen to an offshore pirate radio station on my Walkman. One day I heard a rendition of the John Denver song -- complete with a-hollerin' and a-stampin' -- in Hebrew. My various desultory efforts over the years to locate the artist responsible and to track down a copy of the song have come to naught, but surely if anyone knows who sang this, the AskMe hivemind will.

Response by poster: Toda raba! I'm not sure this is something that Eliezer Ben-Yehuda could haev foreseen.
