Walking the Dog
Rufus Thomas Lyrics


Baby's back, dressed in black,
Silver buttons all down her back
High, low, tipsy toe,
She broke a needle and she can't sew

Walkin' the dog,
Just walkin' the dog
If you don't know how to do it,
I'll show you how to walk te dog

Asked a fellow for fifteen cents,
See the fellow he jumped the fence
Jumped so high he touched the sky,
Never got back till the fourth of July

Walkin' the dog,
Just walkin' the dog
If you don't know how to do it,
I'll show you how to walk the dog

Come on now, come on, come on

Mary, Mary, quite contrary
Tell me, how does your garden grow?
You got silver bells and you got cockleshells
Pretty maids all in a row

Walking the dog
Just a walkin' the dog
If you don't know how to do it
Show you how to walk the dog

Come on now, come on, come on
Oh oh, just a, just a, just a walkin'
Just a, just a, just a walkin'
Just a, just a, just a walkin'

Oh yeah, if you don't know how to do it
I'll show you how to walk the dog, oh

Just a, just a, just a, just a, just a, just a walkin'
Just a, just a, just a, just a, just a, just a walkin', oh

He really wasn't, and when he wanted to, he could carry a the with the best of them.
I heard him do "Trouble In Mind" Live one night & said Damn! I didn't know that.
And "Talkin Bout True Love" in my JAMM!!

Jeff Cory

As much as I have always liked the Rolling Stones cover of this, they pale in comparison to the originator.... powerful, rocking and funky at the same time... Wow. Love this!

Linda Pro1

Rufus was the Man back in the early 70s when I was a kid. "Do the Push and Pull" was one of the first records I ever owned. RIP Mr. Thomas.

And in the 60's, great R 'n' B, songs like this started the R 'n' B revolution.
