You ain't nothin' but a hound dog
Cryin' all the time
You ain't nothin' but a hound dog
Cryin' all the time
Well, you ain't never caught a rabbit
And you ain't no friend of mine

Well they said you was high-classed
Well, that was just a lie
Yeah they said you was high-classed
Well, that was just a lie
Well, you ain't never caught a rabbit
And you ain't no friend of mine

You ain't nothin' but a hound dog
Cryin' all the time
You ain't nothin' but a hound dog
Cryin' all the time
Well, you ain't never caught a rabbit
And you ain't no friend of mine

Well they said you was high-classed
Well, that was just a lie
Yeah they said you was high-classed
Well, that was just a lie
Well, you ain't never caught a rabbit
And you ain't no friend of mine

Well they said you was high-classed
Well, that was just a lie
Ya know they said you was high-classed
Well, that was just a lie
Well, you ain't never caught a rabbit
And you ain't no friend of mine

You ain't nothin' but a hound dog
Cryin' all the time
You ain't nothin' but a hound dog
Cryin' all the time
Well, you ain't never caught a rabbit
You ain't no friend of mine

Big Mama Thornton
This is the original version on the Peacock label from Houston TX rec.1953 w. Big Mama Thornton & Johnny Otis Band, that became even more popular with a guy named Elvis the year after (you can hear/see that Elvis original 45's also here at my youtube). But beetween here another guy came with an answear to big mama's song. He recorded "Bearcat" on Sun Records Memphis TN just month after Thornton came out with her Peacock issue. You can also see and hear the Rufus Thomas version here at youtube in my videos. On Sun #181 78RPM record. ENJOY!
