sung with a thousand different
verses, mostly about politics.
In fact, the "Dawg" song will'
be the campaign song throughout
the country.
How the "Dawg" song got
started no one seems " to know.
Like "Topsy" it just grew. But,
whoever has heard it has not for
gotten it, but has passed it on, by
whistling and singing, to otHers.
And so it has spread Until almost
everybody who keeps track of
what's new in both politics and
music, is learning it.
It's a fool bit of a song, at that,
but here it is :
Wusnt me 'n Lem Briggs 'n olr
Bill Brown
Tuk a load of cawn to town,
An' ol' Jiin-dawg the onry cuss
He jes' nachelly follered us.
(Chorus.)
Every time I come to town
The boys keep kickin my dawg
aroun'.
Makes no difference if he is a
houn'
They got to quit kickin' my dawg
aroun'.
N
As we driv' past Sam Johnson's
Pasel o' yapes kem out th' door;
When Jim he stops to smell a box
They shied at him a bunch of
rocks.
(Chorus,)
They tied a tin can to his tail
An' run him apast the county jail,
N' that plumb nachely makes me
sore
N Lem he cussed V Bill he
swore.
(Chorus.)
Me V Lem Briggs 'n' ol' Bill
Brown
We lost no time in a-jumpin down
An' we wiped them ducks up on
the groun'
-Fer kickin' my ol' dawg aroun'.
(Chorus.)
Folks say a dawg kain't hold no
grudge,
But wunst when I got too much
budge,
Then town ducks tried to do me
up,
But they didn't count on ol'
Jim-pup.
(Chorus.)
Jim seed his duty thar an' then,
An' he lit into the"m gentlemen,
An' he shore mussed up the cote
house square
With rags 'n' meat V hide 'n'
hair!
(Chorus.)
