Dear All,

Anticipating....

Loads o'slurps,

Ian and Josie Mutt

I don't know of any McTell 'Old Brown Dog', but John Koerner and Willie Murphy did a song by that title. It's on their 'Running, Jumping, Standing Still' album reissued on Red House RHR CD 63.

However, given your sidekick's colour, it seems to me that what you need is Koerner, Ray and Glover's cover of the Stonemans' 'Black Dog' on their album 'Lots More Blues, Rags and Hollers' reissued on Red House RHR CD 130. Or perhaps Jesse Winchester's 'Black Dog' which has the glorious refrain 'Black dog don't believe in sin/Think of where the black dog's been'. You'll find an excellent rendition of that on Wizz and Simeon Jones 'Late Nights & Long Days' Fellside FECD91.

Cheers, Stewie.

It's on the lp "You Well Meaning Brought Me Here. The text is on the lp cover - I can xerox it and fax if you wish to send me your fax number (if you have one) (If time appears, I may type it out)

OLD BROWN DOG

(words & music by Ralph McTell, 1970 TRO-Andover Music Inc)

The old brown dog sleeps in the rain unless the sun has shone
That old brown dog is all alone since old Bill been gone
And sleeping in the rain only gives a dog a bad name
"If Bill were alive I know he would decide to have the same thing done"

"That old brown dog he smells so bad" say the people from the town
"That old brown dog is almost lame someone should put him down
It would be an act of kindness you know it's for the best
You bring a rope bring a gun and it'll be over before the dog can guess"

Could an old brown dog have become wise guessed they were after him
His hearing was failin' and his eyes were fast growing dim
On the day they came to kill him he sensed a rabbit on a log
Did anybody see a rabbit chased across the meadows by an old brown dog?

That old brown dog tail waggin' as he laid himself down
It did not seem to matter that the rabbit had long gone to ground
And there in the summer heat his old heart ceased to beat
And high above the meadow the sky larks singing as the spark went out.

recorded by Ralph McTell on "You Well-Meaning Brought Me Here" (Paramount Records PAS 6015)

Thanks to Lamarca for the "refresh" or I likely would not have seen this thread.
