Subject: Me and you and a dog named...

I've heard this song a couple of times on the radio lately, but Alas, here in Norway they tell you the title of the song first, and then play it. Needless to say, I never catch the titles, and so I need your help.

I think the chorus goes like this:

ME AND YOU AND A DOG NAMED BLUE (BOO?) TRAVELLING AND LIVING OFF THE LAND ME AND YOU AND A DOG NAMED BLUE and something about how nice it is to be a free man.

Anyone recognize this? I'd be sooo grateful:

Magpie

This was a pop hit in the USA back around 1970. The name of the group was Lobo, the name of the song "Me and You and a Dog Named Boo." I believe the singer had some more hits later under his own name, but I forget who it was.
I remember to this day
The bright red Georgia clay
How it stuck to the tires
After the summer rain.
Will power made that old car go
A woman's mind told me that it's so
Oh, how I wish we were back
On the road again.

Chorus:
Me and you and a dog named Boo
Travellin' and livin' off the land.
Me and you and a dog named Boo
How I love bein' a free man.

Now I can still recall
The wheat-fields of Saint Paul
And the mornin' we got caught
Robbin' from an old hen,
Old MacDonald, he made us work
But then he paid us for what it was worth
Another tank of gas and back
On the road again.

Repeat chorus
Now I'll never forget that day
We motored stately into big L. A.
The lights of the city put
Settlin' down in my brain,
Though it's only been a month or so
That old car's buggin' us to go
You gotta get away and get back
On the road again.

A classic of the interesting genre known as Hippy Pop. It ranks up there with Signs, Signs, Everywhere a Sign,They Paved Paradise, and Summer Breeze.

Anybody remember "The Games People Play?" Dick Gaughan did a great version of it. It's a great song, once you get rid of the "whoaahs."
