Subject: RE: Origin: Bow Wow Blues (Allen Brothers)
Here's my transcription of the the Hoosier Hotshots' song from My Old Radio.
There's some discussion of the two versions here: Banjo Archive: Bow Wow Blues - Allen Bros and Hoosier Hotshots (with a ref back to this thread).
There's a set of the words posted there too, but I have one slight difference from the version posted there.
BOW WOW BLUES
Bow Wow Blues I've surely been abused.
Each night she howls at me,
Lordy how she growls at me
You can't do this, you can't do that
She even made me sleep in the kitchen with the old tom cat.
Bow Wow Blues, I've surely been abused.
She led me a dog's life then she
Tied a can to me.
I've got those bow wow blues
