Low Down Dog
Holy Modal Rounders

Don't ya take me for no low down dog
Low down dog
Don't ya know I got my pride
I just want to walk beside you, baby

But you say, but you say
I must walk behind
Well I ain't holdin still for none of that stuff

Who will keep your bed warm when I'm gone
When I'm gone
If you let the fire go out
Better know what your about, my baby

But you say, but you say
My best weren't enough
Well I ain't holdin still for none of that stuff

Who will mind the children when I'm gone
When I'm gone
When you want to get away
Who will take them out to play, my baby

But you say, but you say
Kids are my whole life
Well I ain't holdin still for none of that stuff

Who will feed you peaches when I'm gone
When I'm gone
Your new lover may be cute
But will he bring home the fruit,my baby
But you say, but you say
Peaches make me fat
Well I ain't holdin still for none of that stuff

Don't you treat me like no Viet Cong
Viet Cong
Don't you know I'm from Da Nang
I just wanta let it hang, my baby
But you say, but you say
You will drop the bomb
Well he don't go along with none of that stuff

Well I'm a wagon travelin down your road
Down the road
Well you say I'm just one more
That it really aint a bore, my baby
But you say, but you say
Your road's worn and rough
Well I ain't holdin still for none of that stuff


An old favorite that is jolly good fun to sing and play. Fiddles, dogs barking, and la das should be raucous!

Hi Knicke...I do have it on a CD but it is very hard to make out. I'll try to decipher some of it, if that will help...

Since we are losing web sites left and right, and its been a while since the JBR was updated. The lyrics from the JBR are copied below:

Jug Band Rag, March, 2000


EUPHORIA
recorded by The Holy Modal Rounders
by Robin Remaily
additional Lyrics by Peter Stampfel
(and even additional lyrics as noted below)
BMG Music Publishing Inc, BMI

Suggested Easy Tablature:
G / E7 / A D G C G
E / A / D G C G

Ma's downstairs switchin' in the kitchen
And Dad's in the living room grousin' and a bitchin'
And I'm out here kickin' the gong for euphoria

chorus:
Euphoria, when your mind starts reelin' and a walkin'
Your inside voices start squealin' and a squawkin'
Floatin' around on a Bella Donna Cloud singin' euphoria

There's a man in the corner sittin' underneath the table
He sat makin' faces at a union label
You know he picked his ears, rolled his eyes and whispered euphoria

Pinched Eve on the bottom, patted Adam on the back
I smiled at the serpent and it smiled back
Took a bite from the apple with two bites gone and shouted euphoria

[Comment by Steve Miller, Philadelphia Jug Band: "That's the end of the HMR's version.  The Philadelphia Jug Band has an additional verse (that I think we got from the Yardley Mountain Frog Stompers when we were in high school, or at least from a member of that band which was a jug band playing in Bucks County PA during the early 1960s.)"]

Went down to the cellar to buy my cocaine,
Now didn't mind standin' out in the rain
Looked up, looked down, fell flat on the ground and shouted euphoria.

Here's my chord progression layout:

LOW DOWN DOG
Steve Webber

(CAPO on second fret : actually A/F#/B/E/D)
 G                  \                E           \
Don't you treat me like no low down dog (Low down dog)
A \
Don't you know I've got my style
\ D
I just want to walk beside you, baby
C \ \ A
But you say, But you say, I must walk behind
G \ D G
Well, I ain't holding still for none of that stuff
Who will keep your bed warm when I'm gone
If you let the fire go out
You better know what you're about, my baby
But you say, but you say, my bed's warm enough
Well, I ain't holding still for none of that stuff

Who will mind the children when I'm gone
When you want to get away
Who will take them out to play, my baby
But you say, but you say, kids are my whole life
Well, I ain't holding still for none of that stuff

Who will feed you peaches when I'm gone
Your new lover may be cute
But will he bring home the fruit, my baby
But you say, but you say, peaches make me fat
Well, I ain't holding still for none of that stuff

Now, don't you treat me like no Viet Cong
Don't you know I'm from Danang
I just want to let it hang, my baby
But you say, but you say, you don't drop the bomb
Well, I ain't holding still for none of that stuff

On a wagon traveling down your road
Well, you say I'm just one more
That it really is a bore, my baby
But you say, but you say you're all born and robbed
Well, I ain't holding still for none of that stuff

Additional verse by NoPar King:

Don't you treat me like no Lebanese
Don't you know I'm on my knees?
I just like to step on bees, my baby
But you say, but you say bees may sting my feet
Well I'm not holdin' still for none of that stuff.
