Lester Flatt And Earl Scruggs – Salty Dog Blues Lyrics

Standin’ on the corner with the lowdown blues
A great big hole in the bottom of my shoes
Honey let me be your salty dog
Let me be your salty dog but I won’t be your man at all
Honey let me be your salty dog
[ banjo ]
Looky here Sal well I know you rundown stockin’ and a worn out shoe
Honey let me be your Salty Dog
Let me be your salty dog…
[ fiddle ]
Down in the wildwood sittin’ on a log finger on the trigger and eye on the hog
Honey let me be your Salty Dog
Let me be your salty dog…
[ banjo ]
Pulled the trigger and they said go shot fell over in Mexico
Honey let me be you Salty Dog
Let me be your salty dog…
[ fiddle ]
Let me be your salty dog…
