"Old Blue" as written by and Roger / Mc Guinn....
Well, I had an old dog and his name was Blue
Yes, I had an old dog and his name was Blue
Well, I had an old dog and his name was Blue
Bet ya five dollars he's a good dog too

Old Blue chased a possum up a holler limb
Blue chased a possum up a holler limb
Blue chased a possum up a holler limb
The possum growled, Blue whined at him

Bye bye, Blue
You good dog, you
Bye bye, Blue
You good dog, you

When old Blue died, he died so hard
He shook the ground in my back yard
We lowered him down with a golden chain
And every link we called his name

Bye bye, Blue
You good dog, you
Bye bye, Blue
You good dog, you

My old Blue was a good old hound
You could hear him hollering miles around
When I get to Heaven first thing I'll do
Is grab my horn and call for Blue

Bye bye, Blue
You good dog, you
Bye bye, Blue
You good dog, you

    General CommentThis song is an old folk song from the 1800's sung at minstrel shows. I always wanted a dog that I could name, "Blue".
