Buck's Hound Dog
It was a rainy day when Linda met Buck
Linda was impressed by his big ol' pickup truck
They bought a little bitty house in the woods down by the bog
And as a wedding present got a young hound dog
Their love seemed to grow and grow, as well as that dog Lad
Little did they know that things would soon turn bad
Buck's momma lived in the house with the two
And she hated Linda; yes sir, it's true
Linda found another man and left Buck just like that
She said, "And this man's got a mother who isn't a rat!"
Buck's momma shouted, "Good riddance!" and slammed the door
Buck just hugged Lad and sat cryin' on the floor
"Well," said Buck to Lad. "I guess it's just me and you."
"What am I?" asked Buck's momma. "Chop liver stew?"
Buck knew his dog would never leave him (although his mother might)
And things seemed a little better, though he and Linda had had a fight
But just as Buck had that thought, a rabbit ran right by
Lad squirmed out of Buck's arms, and away he did fly
So now that Linda's gone, and Lad is too
I'll leave what happened to Buck's mom up to you
