Woman Phoenix !! Great to see you are still here, still going strong
as ever. Thanks for noticing my absence... it is an appreciated
kindness. All is just as well as I can expect, given this "traitorous
body of mine", as Frida Kahlo put it. Like her, I want it burned
when I leave it.... and also like her, my sentiments are:
'MAY MY LEAVING BE JOYOUS AND MAY I NEVER RETURN"

I love music as well my new friend.Panzade.
Music saves the soul, soothes the savage beast, comforts the pain
of living ... what would we do without it?

What I figured out was that MJ Hurt tuned his guitar to an open D tuning(D-A-F#-D-A-D from the top) so he could alternate the low and middle D's with his thumb. Also called Travis picking.
A little technical I know, but what the heck.

M'dear you lost me at "open D tuning" but that's okay. I can
still learn something new everyday. (even if I am a little lazy
and would rather take a nap) But I appreciate your trying to
explain it to me. Thanks

@conda,
Rumer in Western North Carolina is there was a popular soft drink called Salty dog in the area when this song was originally written. This was on a PBS special on bluegreass music, but I can't finnd any other reference to a bottled drink.

@Walter Hinteler,
I was at Purdue in the fifties and knew the Dogs cornet player. He now lives in Tampa and STILL leads the group which has 3-4 of the players from my day! Amazing!

@Walter Hinteler,
Knew the Dogs well at Purdue in the fifties. They are still active with 3 players from that time. Lew Green (ct) leads them. Heard them a year ago in St. pete, FL

Thanks for sharing all of this great information. I was just watching another Andy Griffith rerun ... with the lovely quirky Darlin' family, and I finally took a minutes to look this up when they sang, "Let Me Be Your Salty Dog." I've seen these episodes several times over and my favorites are definitely those where this family comes to town. Never knew much about what they were a singin' but man-o-man do I enjoy jumpin' up to jig and sing along! I like all kind of music and blue grass has steadily risen over time... thanks to this old tv classic and me taking the time to find and learn more about it... so again... thx for info.. I'll be able to sing along with a little more confidence as to what I'm singin' about! Ha!
