Looking for lyrics to the rest of this song:

I had an old dog and his name was Jed I kept him behind the old wood shed He was the best dog I ever found I thought he would make me a pretty good hound

Oh, every time I go to town The boys keep kickin' my dog around Makes no difference if he is a hound They gotta' quit kickin' my dog around

Subject: Lyr Add: THE HOUND DAWG SONG (from Vance Randolph)
From: Barry Finn
Date: 31 May 97 - 01:51 AM

"The Hound Dawg Song" from Vance Randolph's Ozark Folk Songs

 F            Dm               F         C7         F  
Every time I come to town the boys keep kicking my dawg around
Dm F C7 F
Makes no difference if he is a hound they gotta quit kickin my dawg around
Me an Lem Briggs an ol Bill Brown took a load of corn to town
My ol Jim dawg ornery ol cuss he just naturally followed us

As we drive past Johnston's store a passel of yaps come out the door
Jim he scooted behind a box with all them fellars a-throwing rocks

They tied a can to ol Jim's tail an run him past the county jail
That just naturally made us sore Lem he cussed & Bill he swore

Me an Lem Briggs an ol Bill Brown lost no time a-getting down
We wiped them fellers on the ground for kicking my ol dawg Jim around

Jim seen his duty there & then he lit into them gentlemen
He shore mussed up the court-house square with rags an meat an hide an hair

Repeat 1st verse
Champ Clark (?) from Arkansas used this as his campaign song.
