I'm goin' back to where I'm come
I'm goin' back to where I'm come
I'm goin' back to Giles County
My wife died and left me a bounty
Way them pretty girls ganged around
That's the reason why I'm goin' to Giles County

I had an old dog whose name was Blue
You know that Blue was mighty true
You know Blue was a good old dog
Blue treed a 'possum in a hollow log
You know from that he's a good old dog

Blue treed a 'possum out on a limb
Blue looked at me and I looked at him
Grabbed that 'possum and put him in a sack
"Do fer me, Blue, 'til I get back."

"Here, Ring! Yeah, Ring Here!
Here Ring! Hey, Ring here! "
Who's been here since I been gone
Little bitty girl with the red dress on
Who's been here since I been gone
Little bitty girl with the red dress on

Old Blue's feet was big and round

Old Blue's feets was big and round
Never 'lowed a 'possum to tech the ground
Me and Blue went out on a hunt
Blue treed a 'possum in a hollow stump
You know that Blue was a good old dog
Blue treed a 'possum in a hollow log
You know from that he's a good old dog

Old Blue died and I dug his grave
I dug his grave with a silver spade
I let him down with a golden chain
And every link I called his name

Go on Blue you good dog you
Go on Blue you good dog you
Blue laid down and died like a man
Blue laid down and died like a man
Now he's treein' 'possums in the promised land

I'm goin' to tell you this jes' to let you know
Old Blue's gone where the good dogs go
When I hear old Blue bark
When I hear old Blue bark
Blue's treed a 'possum in Noah's ark
Blue's treed a 'possum in Noah's ark
