Scott Henderson – Smelly Ol' Dog Blues lyrics

Got a smelly ol' dog, baby
Ya know he's a smelly ol' hound
Got a smelly ol' dog, baby
Ya know he's a smelly ol' hound
If I can't make him go away
They gonna run me outa town

I tried to bathe him, baby
Just the other day
But when I put him in the tub
The water got up an' ran away

I shot him 20 times, baby
An' each time down he fell
But the angels wouldn't take him, baby
Cause they couldn't stand the smell
