Ramblin’ Jack Elliott – Old Blue Lyrics

[Song about a dog, Old Blue]

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
And I’ll betcha five dollars he’s a good’un too

Cryin’, here, Blue
You good dog, you

Blue treed a possum in a holler log
Blue treed a possum in a holler log
Blue treed a possum in a holler log
And you could 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 back yard
So I dug his grave with a silver spade
I lowered him down with a golden chain
Every link, it did call his name

I cried, here, Blue
I’m a-comin’ too

Well, I’m a-gonna tell ya just to letcha know
I’m gonna tell ya just to letcha know
I’m gonna tell ya just to letcha know
That Old Blue’s gone where the good dogs go

Cryin’, here, Blue
I’m a-comin’ too
