Subject: James Monroe Song; Tennessee Hound Dog
From: GUEST,loracoad@hotmail.com

I'm looking for the lyrics to an old song by James Monroe (Bill Monroe's son). I think it's titled "Tennessee Hound Dog." I know the lyrics include a line "he's a dynomite, outa sight, back yard Romeo" ... and there's also something about him being a flea hotel. If you have any information, please respond to loracoad@hotmail.com

Tennessee Hound Dog

He looks like skin on a bone pile
A cat wouldn't give him a chance
But When he stretches his long legs out
A fox ain't got a chance
Tennessee hound dog Tennessee hound dog

Sad faced moon-eyed creature
His ears hang down to his knees
The she hounds call him a has been
An old aged home for fleas
Tennessee hound dog Tennessee hound dog

But when he gets a certain kind of look on his face
The she hounds run for a hiding place
Cuz when he takes a notion all the girl dogs know
He's a dynamite up tight outa sight backyard Romeo

He looks like ugly warmed over
Some dog lovers have said that
But he's got more sense in the end of his nose
That they've got in their head
Tennessee hound dog Tennessee hound dog

This is actually a song written by Boudleaux Bryant and Felice Bryant who also penned Rocky Top and Georgia Pineywoods.
