Followed by :

I was standing on the corner
When I heard my bulldog bark
He was barkin' at the two men who were gamblin'
In the dark
It was Stagger Lee and Billy
Two men who gambled late
Stagger Lee threw seven
Billy swore that he threw eight
Stagger Lee told Billy
I can't let you go with that
You have won all my money and my brand new
Stetson hat...


So, no, not really :)
In other words an extended look into *******’s head, and it seems to have some pretty good things in it (who among us is totally free of mental garbage?) It’s nice to see that he is confident enough so he can play some blues again,I’d like to hear more.

I always heard that as 'fool dog', which makes more sense.

I'd buy that mixtape.


Surely the next U2 album.

On the whole, I'd rather be in Wallenpaupack.

Of the examples given, especially the one by the old man, there is quite a lot of inner rhyme. That usually works pretty well in songs. Better often than in poems.
Watch the use of ‘o’ and ‘oo’ in Ray’s example.

The ‘o’ and ‘oo’ can also be seen in Fantastic Voyage quoted above.

It may seem like it, like each line stands on its own, but it rhymes consistently all through it.
