Alan Jackson – Dog River Blues lyrics

[Verse 1]

Well I first kissed you on a hollow log

Down by the river they call the Dog

We fell in love and we vowed that day

Like the flow of the river our love won’t change

Well, we married that spring and we built a house

On the bank of the river where the rock juts out

Now the river’s still here but you’re long gone

You left me and the river here all alone

[Chorus]

I got the Dog River blues

I’ve walked holes in both my shoes

Now I still got the river but I ain’t got you

I got the Dog River blues

[Verse 2]

Well the rain came down and the river rose up

Filled up the cab on my pickup truck

It came in the house and down the hall

And washed your picture right off the wall

[Chorus]

[Verse 3]

Well, my heart still yearns and the river still rolls

And I pray someday it’ll bring you home

If you change your mind honey I’ll be here

Waiting on the banks of that ole Dog River

[Chorus]

[x2]

[Outro]

For I still got the river but I ain’t got you

I got the Dog River blues
