​Black Dog Blues

This song is by Bayless Rose and appears on the compilation Ragtime Blues Guitar (1927-1930) (1994).

Call me ol' dog when I'm gone, gone, gone, yes you
Call me your dog when I'm gone
It's when I come back with a ten dollar bill
"Honey, where you been so long?"

Been all around Kentucky, yes, honey, and the State of old Tennessee
It's everywhere, well, I hang my hat, Home sweet home to me

Daddy learned me how to gamble
Told me to play that jack and trey
Ev'y time when that deal would go down, I would
Leave on that deuce, ace and trey

Old black dog when I'm gone, gone, gone, honey, it's
Old black dog when I'm gone
It's when I come back with a ten dollar bill
"Honey, where you been so long?"

Daddy learned me how to gamble
Told me to play that jack and trey
Ev'y time when that deal would go down, I would
Leave on that deuce, ace and trey

Call me old dog when I'm gone, gone, gone, honey
Call me old dog when I'm gone
It's when I come back with a ten dollar bill
"Honey, where you been so long?"

"Where'd you get that dress you wear
The shoes that you wore so fine?"
"Got my dress from a railroad man
Shoes from a driver in the mine"

Call me old dog when I'm gone, gone, gone, honey
You call me your dog when I'm gone
It's when I come back with a ten dollar bill
"Honey, where you been so long?"

Bet my dice in Cuby
Played my cards in Spain
It's when I get ready, well, to leave this town
I'm gonna ride that fast mail train
