Oh, Blue

This song is by Peggy Seeger and appears on the album Animal Folk Songs for Children (1957).

Had a dog and his name was Blue
Bet your life he's a rounder, too
Oh, Blue, Blue, Blue, oh, Blue

Every night just about good dark
Blue goes out and begins to bark
Oh, Blue, Blue, Blue, oh, Blue

Everything just in a rush
He treed a possum up a white-oak bush
Oh, Blue, Blue, Blue, oh, Blue

Possum walked out on the end of a limb
Blue set down and talked to him
Oh, Blue, Blue, Blue, oh, Blue

Blue got sick and very sick
Sent for the doctor to come quick
Oh, Blue, Blue, Blue, oh, Blue

Doctor come and he come in a run
Says, "Old Blue, your huntin's done"
Oh, Blue, Blue, Blue, oh, Blue

Blue died and he died so hard
Scratched little holes all around in the yard
Oh, Blue, Blue, Blue, oh, Blue

Laid him out in a shady place
Covered him over with a possum's face
Oh, Blue, Blue, Blue, oh, Blue

Dug his grave with a silver spade
Laid him down with a golden string
Oh, Blue, Blue, Blue, oh, Blue

When I get to heaven I think what I'll do
I'll take my horn and blow for Blue
Oh, Blue, Blue, Blue, oh, Blue
