Old Dog Blue Lyrics Meanings

Old Dog Blue Lyrics

I'm goin' back to where I'm come
I'm goin' back to where I'm come
I'm goin' back to Giles County
My wife died and left me a bounty
Way them pretty girls ganged around
That's the reason why I'm goin' to Giles County

I had an old dog whose name was Blue
You know that Blue was mighty true
You know Blue was a good old dog
Blue treed a 'possum in a hollow log
You know from that he's a good old dog

Blue treed a 'possum out on a limb
Blue looked at me and I looked at him
Grabbed that 'possum and put him in a sack
"Do fer me, Blue, 'til I get back."

"Here, Ring! Yeah, Ring Here!
Here Ring! Hey, Ring here! "
Who's been here since I been gone
Little bitty girl with the red dress on
Who's been here since I been gone
Little bitty girl with the red dress on

Old Blue's feet was big and round

Old Blue's feets was big and round
Never 'lowed a 'possum to tech the ground
Me and Blue went out on a hunt
Blue treed a 'possum in a hollow stump
You know that Blue was a good old dog
Blue treed a 'possum in a hollow log
You know from that he's a good old dog

Old Blue died and I dug his grave
I dug his grave with a silver spade
I let him down with a golden chain
And every link I called his name

Go on Blue you good dog you
Go on Blue you good dog you
Blue laid down and died like a man
Blue laid down and died like a man
Now he's treein' 'possums in the promised land

I'm goin' to tell you this jes' to let you know
Old Blue's gone where the good dogs go
When I hear old Blue bark
When I hear old Blue bark
Blue's treed a 'possum in Noah's ark
Blue's treed a 'possum in Noah's ark
