Here's the 19-second version in its entirety:
MY OLD DOG & ME
As sung by Ramblin' Jack Elliott on "I Stand Alone" (2006)
My old dog likes his meat.
Pork chops are a special treat.
My old dog and me, my old dog and me,
Two old bums, two jolly old bums,
My old dog and me.
Discography of Western Swing and Hot String Bands, 1928-1942 by Cary Ginell and Kevin Coffey (Westport, CT: Greenwood Press, 2001), page 99—says:
MY OLD DOG AND ME was recorded by W. Lee O'Daniel & His Hillbilly Boys on June 10, 1937 in Dallas, Texas – but the recording was unissued. Other songs recorded that day were issued on the Vocalion label.
Other than that, I haven't found any lyrics or evidence of recordings.

"Now, memories tend to be selective, and it seems that applies to even Elliott, who was born Elliot Adnopoz on Aug. 1, 1931. Ten of the 16 songs on "I Stand Alone" clock in at under two minutes long, short by the standard of any musical genre - even punk rock. "I hadn't really thought about that," Elliott says. Then he laughs. "Some of them I just remember one verse, like 'My Old Dog and Me,' that's only one verse I did because I couldn't remember the rest."
That particular song clocks in at just 19 seconds, but Elliott makes the best of the time, clearly enthused about its humorous lyrics as far as he can recall them. "My old dog likes his meat/Pork chops are a special treat," he sings. "My old dog and me/Two old bums, two jolly old bums/My old dog and me."
That is a snip from
