Thread Name: Lyr Req: Lay Down Little Dogies / ...Doggies
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: 'Lay down little doggies' ????
Mark Ross has the right song for the Logan English recording, I can't remember all the words, but it is typical Woody, with absolutely no C&W sentimentality. The last verse goes:-

It's soon now we'll come to the end of the trail,
Your hair hide and carcass to the stockyards I'll sell,
I'll see you in a tin can when you get shipped around,
So lay yourselves down, little dogies, lay down.
