The Dead Dog Blues

Feelin' blue this mornin', like I ain't barely half-alive
Feelin' awfully blue, like I ain't barely half-alive
'Cause last night my girlfriend done left me
and run over the dog on her way out the drive

I loved that old dog, kind of liked that woman too
Really loved that dog and I liked that woman too
Sure gonna miss him each time I remember
At least the one of them was true

Really down 'cause my dog is dead
Howlin' a mournful tune in my head
Got the dead dog blues
Got the dead dog blues

Buried him out back under the live oak tree
Buried my best friend under the live oak tree
When I said goodbye to that old hound dog
It felt like I was buryin' a part of me

Feelin' blue this mornin', lost too much yesterday
Feelin' mighty blue, lost two loves just yesterday
The one of them can't never come back
And the other had better stay away

A somewhat silly and very rough blues lyric. Might develop it, sooner or later or never.
