Topic: D-O-G

I wrote this, this morning as I remembered a while back I heard of a fellow that named his dog "D-O-G" Sound out each letter to pronounce the name. This is a fictitious story although I'm guessing there are those that can relate to it. smile
In the style of John Prine with lots of walkdowns.

[song]
{t:D-O-G}
{st: © Ken Peters Dec 27/10}
[C]D-O-G is my dog and she's my very best friend.
No one [G7]can contend.
I'll love her [C]till the end.
[C]Arthritic bones and kidney stones, she's a sweet old lass.
Man she [G7]eats a lot of grass.
Cause she [C]got bad gas.
{soc}
[F]When I go to bed at night,
She's [C]by my feet, it's no delight.
[C]Her tossing and her turning and her [G7]most ungodly smell.
[C]Mmmm- Mmmm- Mmmm...
My Oh [F]My...
[G]Some days she stinks so bad it makes me [G7]cry.
But I wouldn't trade D-O-G, I'd rather [C]die.
{eoc}

[C]Last week I took D-O-G out for a short car ride.
To the [G7]countryside.
So she could run [C]far and wide.
[C]Ten miles out there weren't no doubt she passed some gas.
And like a [G7]snake in the grass.
It snuck [C]up en-mass.
{soc}
I [F]fought to roll my window down,
I [C]surely thought that I would drown.
[C]Evoking I was choking on that [G7]most ungodly smell.
[C]Mmmm- Mmmm- Mmmm.
My Oh [F]My.
[G]Some days she stinks so bad it makes me [G7]cry.
     But I wouldn't trade D-O-G, I'd rather [C]die.
{eoc}

          [F]My oh [G]my D-[C]O-G.
          Your [F]pickled butt has [G]crippled many good [C]men.
          Don't [F]cry-y-[G]y D-[C]O-G. [Am]
          I [G]know you can tell.
          On the days I smell.[G7] .....Fart-Fart-Fart

[C]At Christmas my whole family came for the holiday.
On my [G7]knees I'd pray.
D-O-G don't [C]stink today.
[C]Sure enough with the turkey stuffed and the table trimmed.
She [G7]passed some wind.
Poor Aunt [C]Pat got pinned.
{soc}
[F]In my mind there was no doubt.
[C]I thought she surely would pass out.
[C]Her heartbeat grew,her face went blue from that [G7]most ungodly smell.
[C]Mmmm- Mmmm- Mmmm.
My Oh [F]My.
[G]D-O-G stinks so bad it makes me [G7]cry.
But I wouldn't trade D-O-G, I'd rather [C]die.
{eoc}

[G]Some days she stinks so bad it makes me [G7]cry.
But I wouldn't trade D-O-G, I'd rather [C]die. [F] [C] [G7] [C]

Re: D-O-G

Hey ken
That's some real funny lyrics and oh so true mind you the old dog comes in handy when one has to shift the blame for the odd human smell.  smile
Well done
ark

Re: D-O-G

Thanks for the read and comments Ark smile

We had a Norwegian Elk Hound growing up and I can recall thankfully only a few of her bad days. But your right when it comes to the blame game. lol

Hi Daddy,
Glad you liked it smile
Between you and Arks comment about "passing" the blame that got me thinking on a bridge that I'll be adding shortly.
Cheers and Thanks  Kenny


Howdy Phill.
My Christmas gift (Zoom Q3) from me to me is ordered and will be here soon. I'm not sure if I will be posting anything at Myspace as I seem to have a lot of problems with pages loading and so on sad  But I will be posting them on Youtube as soon as I can get some kind of nerve up...That would be a New Years Resolution that I am going to hold myself to....I hope lol

Thanks for the read and comments mate.

Re: D-O-G

I used to have a dog like that. The older I get, the more I need another one just like him.

We pronounce it "Guf Coast".
Ya'll wanna go down to the Guf?
