Police Dog Blues

cd cover: terraplane by scott ainslie(Arthur Blake)

Said, all my life—I been a ramblin’ man.
Said, all my life—I been a ramblin’ man.
Livin’ alone, I try to do the best I can.

I shipped my trunk down—down to Tennessee.
I shipped my trunk down—down to Tennessee.
It’s hard to tell—’bout a man like me.

INSTRUMENTAL #1

I met a girl—I couldn’t get her off my mind.
I met a girl—I couldn’t get her off my mind.
She passed me up—didn’t like my tie.

(Here she’s walkin’ away…)

INSTRUMENTAL #2/Walkin’ bass

I’m afraid to bother around her house at night.
I’m afraid to bother around her house at night.
Police dog is crazy and want to bite.

Well, his name is ‘Rambler’ and when he gets a chance;
His name is ‘Rambler’ and when he gets a chance;
He leaves his mark—-on everybody’s pants.

(here’s the dog….)

INSTRUMENTAL #3/Dog

So I guess I’ll travel, I guess I’ll let her be.
I guess I’ll travel, I guess I’ll let her be.
Before she sets that Police Dog on me.

Said, all my life, I been a travelin’ man.
Said, all my life, I been a travelin’ man.
Livin’ alone, try to do the best I can.
