​Get Along Stray Dog

This song is by Steve Martin and Steep Canyon Rangers, features Edie Brickell and appears on the album Live (2014).

Johnny came home and Jim did, too
Lookin' for a home-cooked dinner
Mama in the kitchen said you never get through
Cooking for the saints and sinners

Get along, get along, get along Johnny
Get along, get along, get along Jimmy

One day the preacher come to our door
Said, Mm, hmm, somethin' sure smells good
Papa said yes and there's room for one more
Come and help yourself if you would

Get along, get along, get along preacher
Get along, get along, get along Papa

Every single time we sit down to eat
Somebody's in the front yard
Ol' Miss Mary and her sister Mimi
Coming on over just to play cards

Get along, now
Go home
Get along, now
Go on

Get along now
That's right
Get along now
Good night

Get along, get along, get along Mary
Get along, get along, get along Mimi

Get along now
Go home
Get along now
Go on

Get along now
That's right
Get along now
Good night

Hurry shut the door before she cooks
Don't free the fine aroma
Every stray dog in the neighborhood
Lookin' for a meal from Mama

Get along, get along, get along stray dog
Get along, get along, get along stray dog
