49. Old Red- Blake Shelton

Well I caught my wife with another man
 And it cost me ninety nine
 On a prison farm in Georgia
 Close to the Florida line
 Well I'd been here for two long years
 I finally made the warden my friend
 And so he sentenced me to a life of ease
 Taking care of Ol Red

 Now Ol' Red he's the damnedest dog that I've ever seen
 Got a nose that can smell a two day trail
 He's a four legged tracking machine
 You can consider yourself mighty lucky
 To get past the gators and the quicksand beds
 But all these years that I've been here
 Ain't nobody got past Red


 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

 

 Well I paid off the guard and I slipped out a letter
 To my cousin up in Tennessee
 Oh and he brought down a blue tick hound
 She was pretty as she could be
 Well they penned her up in the swampland
 'Bout a mile just south of the gate
 And I'd take Ol' Red for his evening run
 I'd just drop him off and wait

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

 Now Ol' Red got real used to seeing
 His lady every night
 And so I kept him away for three or four days
 And waited till the time got right
 Well I made my run with the evenin' sun
 And I smiled when I heard 'em let Red out
 'Cause I was headed north to Tennessee
 And Ol' Red was headed south

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

 Now there's red haired blue ticks all in the South
 Love got me in here and love got me out
