And I betcha five dollars he’s a good Ddog, too
Come on, A7Blue You good Ddog, you
Yah, old A7Blue You good dog, Dyou

 

1. I had a dog and his name was Blue
And I betcha five dollars he’s a good dog, too
Come on, Blue You good dog, you

2. I shouldered my gun and I tooted my horn
And I went to get a possum in the new ground corn
Come on, Blue You can come too
Yah, old Blue You good dog, you

3. Old Blue bayed, and I went to see
Blue had a possum in a ‘simmon tree
Come on, Blue You good dog, you

4. That possum come out on a swinging limb
Blue barked at the possum, possum growled at him
Come on, Blue You good dog, you

I shook out the possum out, Blue took him in
Come on, Blue You good dog, you

And I layed them sweet potatoes round and round
Come on, Blue You can have some, too

7. Well, Old Blue died and he died so hard
He shook the ground in my backyard
Go on, Blue You good dog, you
Yah, old Blue You good dog, you

8. Dug his grave with a silver spade
Lowered him down with a golden chain
Go on, Blue You good dog, you
Yah, old Blue You good dog, you

9. When I get to heaven first thing I’ll do
Take my horn and blow for Blue
Go on, Blue I’m comin’ too
Yah, old Blue You good dog, you

There’s a possum in Heaven for me and you
Go on, Blue You good dog, you
