Thread Name: Lyr Req: Lay Down Little Dogies / ...Doggies
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: 'Lay down little doggies' ????
Been thinking about this one, I still manage it at my advanced age, so here is what I remember, Starts with the chorus :-

Lay down, little dogies lay down,
We've both got to sleep on the cold, cold ground,
The wind's getting colder as the sun's going down,
So lay yourselves down, little dogies lay down.

We started our beef trail 'bout six months ago,
We've blistered in the sun and we've froze in the snow,
It's soon now we'll come into packing-house town,
So lay yourselves down, little dogies lay down

CH

That bad hole of water we drunk and got sick,
Burned our insides, tied your tails up in kinks,
Got lost in a blind canyon, tippy-toeing around
So lay yourselves down, little dogies lay down.

CH

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

CH

That is all I remember, there may have been another verse, but I can't visualise it. Can't help with chords and stuff like that, I'm just an ooold unaccomplished singer!
