A place to share some words of beauty, inspiration, and fun. This week in honor of our canine son Henry, we are offering three songs about dogs and the people who love them. Click on the name of the piece to get a video or more information.

And the warden sang
Come on somebody
Why don’t you run
Ol’ Red’s itchin’ to have a little fun
Get my lantern
Get my gun
Red’ll have you treed before the mornin’ comes

Old Red Group: Singer: Blake Shelton; Songwriters: Writers: Mark Sherrill, James Bohon, Don Goodman

King went a-howlin’ after deer
Wasn’t scared of jumpin’
off the truck in high gear
King went a-sniffin’
and he would go
Was the best old hound dog
I ever did know

Old King Singer and writer: Neil  Young

Now I lay me down to sleep
And pray the Lord my soul to keep
If I die before I wake, feed Jake
He’s been a good dog
My best friend right through it all
If I die before I wake, feed Jake

Feed Jake Group: Pirates of the Mississippi; Writer Danny “Bear” Mayo
