Ole lonesome George the basset lived in Brentwood Tennessee
And even though he had his faults he was a sight to see
He taught the show dog puppies to always try and please
To hold their heads and tails up and not wet the judge's knees
Ole George was not a champion but his owners loved him so
They drived the car to the dogshows ole George would get the dough
But when he'd get out in the rain he never could win first
Several judges shook their heads and said he was the worst
Then one day the kannel keeper got an urgent call
From the local TV to Mr Tom T Hall
They said Johnny Cash is puttin' on the show tonight
He says he needs a basset you've got one ain't that right
Lonesome George went to the show and he did everything
He barked and growled and jumped around and made the rappers ring
He'd left the people cheering for another curtain call
And so ole lonesome George became the show dog after all mhm
