« on: March 31, 2020, 08:28:42 AM »
Trying to transcribe this song and I'm having trouble in a few key spots.  I can't find a youtube and I'm having trouble making an mp3 file small enough.  Argh LOL.  Anyone have this Song?  It's on the Document Records "Hokum Blues" collection.

Sweet Black Dog by Feathers And Frogs


I heard a yella hound in the field around
Honey (why you give me/get me?) turn(ed) around
Oh you sweet black dog (Oh you sweet black dog)
Oh you sweet black dog (Oh you sweet black dog)
Aintí about your bowwow
Oh you sweet black dog (oh you nasty black dog)

Like your pretty (sp(iff?)Ö and your (pick o nee??)
But I want somebody to hear me please
Oh you sweet black dog (Oh you sweet black dog)
Oh you sweet black dog (Oh you nasty black dog)
Let me be your puppy oh you sweet black dog (oh you filthy black dog)

I be your mutt when we get along
If you dig up the hole Iíll get the bone
Oh you sweet black dog (Oh you sweet black dog)
Oh you sweet black dog (Oh you sweet black dog)
Yeah Iíll fight any meat hound for my
sweet black dog (oh you sweet black dog)

Blacker the berry, sweeter the juice
Be the black dog for my personal use
Oh you sweet black dog (Oh you sweet black dog)
O you sweet black dog (Oh you sweet black dog)
Yeah Iíll (bite and?) fight off any hound
For my sweet black dog (Oh you dirty black dog)

Donít want to see them making love with you
Oh you sweet black dog (Oh you sweet black dog)
Oh you sweet black dog (Oh you dirty? black dog)
Iíll give you some my biscuits oh you sweet blackó

Filthy, you sweet black dog

Mister puppy
