Andy Griffith song to raise money for wildlife


The song is actually called "The Fishing Hole" and it has been re-recorded -- words and all -- by country singer Darryl Worley to benefit state wildlife agencies.

Fans who want the song can text the word FISH to 50555. In exchange for a $10 donation added to their phone bill, they will receive a ringtone of "The Fishing Hole."

In Tennessee, the donations go to the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Foundation to help repair damage from recent natural disasters. That includes restoring levees, replacing damaged equipment and re-stocking fish, according to the Daily Post-Athenian.

Donations from outside of Tennessee will go to the state wildlife agency where the donor lives.
