Well I know my dog
Anywhere I hear him bark
Well I know my rider
If I feel her in the dark

Ain't it cold for you, mother
When you say you don't love me?
Well that's alright woman
You gonna need my help someday

You didn't say you didn't love me
When you were stretched out across my bed
You're drinkin' moonshine whisky
And talking all outta your head

Ain't but two kinda people
In this world that I can't stand
Well that's a lying woman
And a cheatin' monkey man

Well, I feel like snapping
My pistol in your face
I'm gonna let the graveyard
Be your resting place

Well I know my dog
Anywhere I hear him bark
I know my rider
If I feel her in the dark

    General CommentYes, Jordy, this song was originally by "Blind Boy" Fuller, who was a blues musician. That's about all I know about Fuller, but Rory always seemed to take a shine to early blues music, rather than the modern blues. For example, listen to his rendition of the Muddy Waters song "Can't Be Satisfied" on youtube, and the re-make of "On the Western Plains" off his Montreux DVD. But that's just to name a couple of these, there's many more out there.

    General CommentYeah Fulton Allen i think was his real name, there story behind the origins of his name "Blind boy". One say that he was blinded by illness the other is that his wife caught him cheating and threw acid in his eyes and blinded him. Also throughly amazing song in the hands of Rory.
