Old Blue that was his name
The best damn dog I ever had
It almost seemed he could read my mind
He was always good, and never bad.
I found him on the back porch
He looked so thin and cold
I couldn’t help but feel sorry for him
So I picked him up to hold.
He couldn’t have been no bigger
Than my two hands held together
His tail showed a little life
And I knew he would be mine forever.
I raised him all those days from there
Even taught him a trick or two
He was always by my side
The two of us were stuck like glue.
Then one day I got old it seemed
And Blue he even got older
When I went to give him his breakfast
He didn’t move and his skin was colder.
I lost my best friend that day
Now I had no reason to live
Old Blue had kept me company
He had so much love to give.
I sit here with tears in my eyes
As I look out over the grounds
I sure do miss that dog I admit
Miss seeing him run around.
Lord you brought me a friend
And now you took him away
Do you think my day will come
When he and I can play?
I rock in my worn out rocker
And I look up to the skies
I thought I heard a familiar bark
Then I wipe the tears from my eyes.
