Lyrics
Had a dog and his name was Blue
Had a dog and his name was Blue
Had a dog and his name was Blue
Betcha five dollars he’s a rounder too

Blew my whistle and I tooted my horn
Gonna get a possum in the new ground corn
Blue chased a possum up a ‘simmon tree
Possum said, “Blue better look at me”
Well, I baked that possum golden brown
Laid them sweet potatoes all around
Cryin’ yonder, Blue, you good dog you

Blue, what makes your eyes so red
Blue, what makes your eyes so red
Blue, what makes your eyes so red
Chase that possum till I’m almost dead

Old Blue died and he died so hard
Old Blue died and he died so hard
Old Blue died and he died so hard
Shook the ground in my back yard
Cryin’ yonder, Blue, you good dog you

Dug his grave with a silver spade
Dug his grave with a silver spade
Dug his grave with a silver spade
Lowered him down with links of chain
Every link and I call his name
“Blue-ue-ue, you good dog you”

When I get to Heaven first thing I’ll do
When I get to Heaven first thing I’ll do
When I get to Heaven first thing I’ll do-oo-oo-oo
Grab my horn and call for Blue
Old Blue-ue-ue-ue
