Three Cowdog Classics

Your Momma Wears Old Tow Sack Drawers

(from It's A Dog's Life)
to the tune of America the Beautiful

(copyright © John Erickson)

Your momma wears old tow-sack drawers,
And holds them up with twine.
She has a ringworm on her nose
And picks it all the time.

Your momma's combat boots smell bad,
So do her dirty socks
Which goes to show what all cats know:
All dogs are just a pox.

Cats are Stupid

(from It's a Dog's Life)
to the tune of My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean

(copyright © John Erickson)

When God made a cat, he was desperate
For something to make Himself laugh.
He gave it the brain of a monkey
But dropped it and broke it in half.

Cats are STOO-PID,
They don't have the sense of a snooker ball.
That's why monkeys
Deny any kinship at all.

Good Night Beulah

(from Murder in the Middle Pasture) to the tune of Good Night Irene
(copyright © John Erickson)

Oh Beulah good night, good night.
Beulah good night. Good night Beulah,
Good night Beulah,
I'll see you in my dreams.

I love that girl, God knows I do,
I'll love her till the creek runs dry.
And if that girl turns her back on me
You can kiss that birddog goodbye.


Stop your ramblin', stop your gamblin',
Stop makin' patrols at night
Go home to that gal with the fine sharp nose
And everything will come out all right.
