Lyric for the day

Said, the little fish, big fish swimmin' in the water
Come back, man, and gimme my quarter
Hey-hey-hey, you salty dog

Said, the scaredest I ever was in my life
Uncle Bud like to caught me kissin' his wife
Hey-hey, you salty dog

Salty Dog - Mississippi John Hurt

When asked for the meaning of "salty dog", Hurt sheepishly replied, "To tell you the truth, I never thought about it"

Nuff said...he's a lord!!


  1. Love the pic!

    "God made woman, made 'em mighty funny
    The lips 'round her mouth, just as sweet as any honey
    Hey-hey, you salty dog"

  2. Am loving your lyric choices... remember listening to MJH in some bar in the middle of nowhere, somewhere on NZ's south island. Weird how far great music travels...
