Dog Named Blue

I once had a dog named Blue
the best dog i ever knew
He’d chase a squirrel for you
and help you skin the damn thing too

Now ole Blue was always by my side
even after I took a wife.
He was a best faithful friend
he stayed right here til the end.

Now Blue he’s up in Heaven now,
chasing them rebbits fat as cows,
probably looking down here
with a grin from ear to ear.

Now some days I whistle for ole Blue,
not ’cause I think he’ll come runnin,
Just bangin on Heaven’s door,
Wishing he was never done in.

I once had a dog named Blue
the best dog I ever knew
He’d chase a squirrel for you
and help you skin the damn thing too
