Ole Lonesome George The Basset Lyrics

Ole lonesome George, the basset
Lived in Brentwood Tennessee
And even though he had his faults
He was a sight to see

He taught the show dog puppies
To always try and please
To hold their heads and tails up
And not wet the judge's knees

Ole George, was not a champion
But his owners loved him so
They'd drive the car to the dog shows
Ole George would get the dough

But when he'd get out in the rain
He never could win first
Several judges shook their heads
And said he was the worst

Then one day the kennel keeper
Got an urgent call
From the local TV
To Mr Tom T Hall

They said Johnny Cash
Is puttin' on a show tonight
He says he needs a basset
You've got one ain't that right

Lonesome George, went to the show
And he did everything
He barked and growled and jumped around
And made the rappers ring

He'd left the people cheering
For another curtain call
And so ole lonesome George became
The show dog after all
