Lyrics: Robert Hunter
Music: Malcolm Welbourne (Papa Mali), Bill Kreutzmann

One of the new songs with Robert Hunter lyrics played by 7 Walkers featuring Bill Kreutzmann and Papa Mali.

Hound dog bail, hound dog bail
My old puppy had to go to jail
(Hey Bo Diddle, Hey Bo Diddle)
Hey Bo Diddley, go Bo Diddley
(Jones and the whale, Jones and the whale)
God said, Jones, better learn to sail
(Hey Bo Diddle, Hey Bo Diddle)
Hey Bo Diddley, go Bo Diddley

Jones said, Lord, who's word is law?
I hear you play the musical saw
(Hey Bo Diddle, Hey Bo Diddle)
Hey Bo Diddley, go Bo Diddley

God said, I play a little sax besides
Known to beat the conga hides
(Hey Bo Diddle, Hey Bo Diddle)
Where'd you learn to play that fiddle
I learned it down in the Beaumont Jail
1940, if my memory don't fail
(Hey Bo Diddle, Hey Bo Diddle)
Hey Bo Diddley, go Bo Diddley

There ain't nothing I can't play
But the law's the law in the key of A
(Hey Bo Diddle, Hey Bo Diddle)
Hey Bo Diddly, go Bo Diddley
(Hey Bo Diddle, what do you know?)
Nothing I'm not supposed to know
(Hey Bo Diddle, Hey Bo Diddle)
Hey Bo Diddly, go Bo Diddley
