Old Blue
I had a dog and his name was Blue
I had a dog, his name was Blue
I had a dog and his name was Blue
Betcha five dollars he's a good one too
Cryin', "Here Blue, you good dog you"

Blue chased a possum in a hollowed log
Blue chased a possum in a hollowed log
Blue chased a possum in a hollowed log
And you can tell from that he was a good old dog
Cryin', "Here Blue, you good dog you"

When old Blue died, he died so hard
It shook the ground in my backyard
So I dug his grave with a silver spade
Lowered him down on a golden chain
Every link I did call his name
I cried, "Here, Blue, I'm comin' too"

Well, I'm gonna tell you just to let you know
I'm gonna tell you to let you know
I'm gonna tell you just to let you know
That old Blue's gone where to good dogs go
Cryin', "Here, Blue, I'm a-comin' too"
