FRED (Ray Stevens) Ray Stevens - 1984 Well, Fred was a dog I used to own He used to answer the telephone And ev'ry now and then he'd take the truck into town for groceries Yeah, Fred and I got along real well At the checkerboard old Fred was hell And he never minded takin' turns at doin' the dishes Now, when Fred was just about three years old He started actin' kinda bold An he's chasin' after that beagle down across the highway Well, he was down there ev'ry day and night And I said, "Fred, you know you're gonna have to fight" And he said, "Well, I've already whipped ev'rything between here and the railroad" Fred, you are a good dog But the women got you runnin' wild and crazy as a loon Fred, you are a good dog But your chasin' cars, hangin' out at bars an' howlin' at the moon Well, now one night old Fred came stragglin' in He's lookin' bad, but he pullin' a grin He said "'Mone, I just took a wife and I want you to meet her" Well, now she didn't really have much to say And it's plain to see she's in the family way She said, "Fred, you better whip on back and get my suitcase" Well, Fred never made it to the other side 'Cause right in the middle of the road he died Flattened by a trucker haulin' dog food Now old Fred's gone, she's livin' here Just yappin' at her kids and drinkin' my beer And she won't drive the truck, nor do the dishes Fred, you were a good dog But you never knew when to chase 'em or when to turn around and run Yeah, Fred, you were a good dog But now you're flat out on the freeway and dryin' in the sun You know, old Fred's gone and I'm kinda glad 'Cause if he were here now, he'd sure be mad 'Cause ain't one of them pups looks anything like him Yeah, Fred, you were a good dog But you never knew when to chase 'em or when to turn around and run Oh, Fred, you were a good dog But now you're flat out on the freeway and dryin' in the sun Flat out on the freeway and dryin' in the sun (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - July 2012)
