Alan Jackson – Dog River Blues lyrics
Well I first kissed you on a hollow log
Down by the river they call the Dog
We fell in love and we vowed that day
Like the flow of the river our love won抰 change
Well we married that spring and we built a house
On the bank of the river where the rock juts out
Now the river抯 still here but you抮e long gone
You left me and the river here all alone

I got the Dog River blues
I抳e walked holes in both my shoes
Now I still got the river but I ain抰 got you
I got the Dog River blues

Well the rain came down and the river rose up
Filled up the cab on my pickup truck
It came in the house and down the hall
And washed your picture right off the wall


Well my heart still yearns and the river still rolls
And I pray someday it抣l bring you home
So if you change your mind honey I抣l be here
Waiting on the banks of that olDog River
