Diesel's Got the Gutbucket Blues
Listening to the White Stripes play "Ball and Biscuit"
Diesel ah-roo-roo-rooos out the car window,
singing along with that dirty white boy guitar.
And when I laugh out loud
he just looks at me like: Mama,
what do you know about singing the blues?
I may be a Miniature Schnauzer
but I've got me a blue-tick hound dog soul.
