Anahootz What the hell is a 'salty dog'? (81* d) What the hell is a "salty dog"? 08 Feb 02

I made a bluegrass compilation CD for my wife recently, and on it I included Flatt & Scruggs' version of "Salty Dog Blues".

She returned from a day at the office, and asked, "Honey, what the hell is a salty dog?"

For those unfamiliar with the tune, the chorus is "Let me be your salty dog / or I won't be your man at all / Honey let me be your salty dog."

Vaguely sexual, or is that just my inner adolescent chiming in from some dim recess of my brain...?
