Red Foley – Salty Dog Rag chords

Chords:
Transpose:
[Verse 1]
DAway down yonder in the state of Arkansas
GWhere my great-grandpa met my great-grandma
CThey drink apple cider and they get on a jag,
F A7And dance all night to the Salty Dog Rag.
DThey play an old fiddle like you never heard before,
GThey play the only tune that they ever did know-
CIt's a ragtime ditty and the rhythm don't drag,
F C FNow everybody's dancing to the Salty Dog Rag.
[Chorus]
D7One foot front, drag it back,
G7Then you start to ball the jack.
CYou shake and you break and then you sag.
F A7If your partner zigs, you're supposed to zag.
D7Your heart is light, you tap your feet
G7In rhythm with that ragtime beat.
CPack up your troubles in your old kit bag
F C FAnd dance all night to the Salty Dog Rag.
[Verse 2]
DAway down South 'neath the old Southern moon,
GThe possum's up a tree and the hounds've treed a coon
CThey hitch up a buggy to the broken-down nag
F A7And go out dancing to the Salty Dog Rag.
DThey tune up the fiddle and they rosin up the bow.
GThey strike a C chord on the old banjo
CThen holler hang on 'cause we ain't gonna drag.
F C FNow here's the way you dance to the Salty Dog Rag.
[Chorus]
D7One foot front, drag it back,
G7Then you start to ball the jack.
CYou shake and you break and then you sag.
F A7If your partner zigs, you're supposed to zag.
D7Your heart is light, you tap your feet
G7In rhythm with that ragtime beat.
CPack up your troubles in your old kit bag
F C FAnd dance all night to the Salty Dog Rag.
