Buddy the Blue Eyed Merle

Rock out guys and have a great summer. Live a little, ya? Except the 6th graders…you guys need to tone it down a bit…actually a lot.

Took the pup out into the mountains today. Thought of this song about a Blue Eyed Merle…same as Buddy. I think Buddy is missing a tooth though…and he is really dirty.

Lyrics:

Ah caught you smiling at me, That’s the way it should be,
Like a leaf is to a tree, so fine.

Ah all the good times we had, I sang love songs so glad
Always smiling, never sad, so fine.

*As we walk down the country lanes, I’ll be singing a song,
Hear me calling your name.
Hear the wind within the trees, Telling Mother Nature ’bout you and me.

Well if the sun shines so bright, Or on our way it’s darkest night
The road we choose is always right, so fine.

Ah can your love be so strong When so many loves go wrong
Will our love go on and on…

* Chorus

My, my la de la come on now it ain’t too far,
Tell your friends all around the world,
Ain’t no companion like a blue eyed merle.
Come on now well let me tell you,
What you’re missing, missing, ’round them brick walls.

So of one thing I am sure, It’s a friendship so pure,
Angels singing all around my door, so fine.
Yeah, ain’t but one thing to do Spend my natural life with you,
You’re the finest dog I knew, so fine.

When you’re old and your eyes are dim, There ain’t no old Shep gonna happen again,
We’ll still go walking down country lanes, I’ll sing the same old songs,
Hear me call your name.

  1. Bony stomp! Great little song. The live version from their box set DVD compilation, is actually better than the studio. It’s usually the other way around with Led Zep. I made a few attempts to learn this song on guitar. I kept breaking strings!

  2. Strider……….
