Cat Power – Salty Dog lyrics

( Papa Charlie Jackson "Complete Chronological Recordings, Vol. 1 (1924-1926)" )

If I can't be your salty dog
I won't be your man at all
Honey let me be your salty dog

I got a gal she's ten feet tall
Sleeps in the kithen
With her feet in the hall
Honey let me be your salty dog

Two old ladies
Sittin' in the sand
Each one with that
The other were a man
Salty dog

I think well call
This son to an end
Cause it's getting under our skin
Honey let me be your salty
Baby let me be your salty
Honey let me be your salty dog.
