Thought to be a an old time negro blues converted to mountain style. Recorded by Earl Scruggs in the 1950's since which time it has been a considered a bluegrass classic.
Chor: Let me be your salty dog, or I won't be your little man at all,
Honey let me be your salty dog.

Standing on the corner with the low down blues,
a great big hole in the bottom of my shoes, honey let me
be your salty dog.
Look here, Sal, I know you,
With a low down slipper and a brogan shoe,
Honey let me be your salty dog.

Down in the wildwood sitting on a log
Singing a song called salty dog,
Honey let me be your salty dog.
