DT Lyrics:





Subject: Lyric help: Everytime I go to town (?)
From: blourdasst@caa.com
Date: 05 May 99 - 01:17 PM

My father swears there exists a song with the line, "Everytime I go to town/Someone's kicking my dog around." The family has been searching high and low for the song title, artist, additional lyrics - anything! Any leads would be greatly appreciated, after six years we'd love to hear him sing something more than those 10 words.

Thanks.

Well, that didn't work.

Until I get better at this, try cutting and pasting this into your search box, or do a forum search with "kicking my dog" in the subject.

Meanwhile, I'll go practice on the practice html thread!

campfire,

I cannot make it "link" like Joe Offer can, but I can see (via view/ document source) what you have done. You had no blank in your 'ahref' after the a to make it look 'a href'. I think that was the reason.

Buffy Ste. Marie also recorded this song, with words almost identical to those in the DT, in the 1960s, with mouth bow accompaniment. Whatever happened to the mouth bow, by the way?

Howie Mitchell and George Armstrong do this song on our Golden Ring>/i> compact disc (CD-16), reissued from a mid-sixties vinyl LP. They do it with mouthbow, mountain dulcimer, and bagpipe practice chanter. The song was reportedly used as a campaign song by Champ Clark of Missouri. Delightful!

Buffy's mouthbow has probably got halitosis by now, but I think Jimmy Driftwood also recorded with one. That sound right Sandy?

Vance Randolph included the song in volume III of his four volume set of Ozark Folk Songs. According to Randolph, Champ Clark used the song in his 1912 campaign for President. The second infantry of the Missouri National Guard played the song with such relish and so frequently that it was reportedly known as the Hound Dog Regiment. Supposedly the song was claimed by Arkansans as the work of an Arkansas Ozark man, which is probably true because the descendants of the hound dog live across the street and steal my newspaper on occasion. However, folks in Missouri also lay claim to the song. A postmaster in Taney County Missouri claimed that the song was written about Zeke Parrish who had been arrested for fighting in the streets of Forsyth with someone who had kicked his dog. Lem Brown was probably related to someone on the town council because his name did not come up. Another fellow claimed, without any evidence, that the song had been sung frequently by Daniel Boone who died in Missouri during the 1820's. This was possibly the same chap who claimed to own Daniel Boone's axe. The handle had only been replaced four times and the head twice. There is also a old 78 record by Harlan & Porter or Harlan & Collins, but I can't locate it at present with a verse or two that is not in the Randolph volume.

I never heard Jimmy Driftwood's version, Rick, but that ol' mouthbow made him rich and famous, didn't it, along with some neat songs? Too bad it didn't do the same for Howie Mitchell, who invented the fretted mouthbow (a parallel rod along the string, with a stop placed at the fourth and fifth intervals).

Howie Mitchell, by the way, is the featured guest at the dulcimer gathering in Boone, NC, this summer. If any of you Mudcatters live in the area, you oughta go meet him.

Thanks, Wolfgang.

I did the link attempt in my word processor, copying from the HTML STUFF thread. It actually turned blue in the word processor, so I copied it to the thread response. Must have somehow lost the space in the transfer. I'll just keep practicing.....

Forest creature: There have been several threads about this song. You had the bad luck to find the one thread that wasn't linked to any other threads.

For more information, try this thread: Origin: They Gotta Quit Kickin' My Dawg Aroun'. It has the original lyrics from the sheet music, etc.

It is also linked to 4 other threads.
