Callin' The Dog....

Tall talkin' in Mississippi has been termed
"Callin' the dog"
ever since that famous tall-tale session
when one man offered a hound dog pup
to the person who could tell the biggest lie.
Well, those stories started rollin' in,
each one bigger and harder to believe
than the one before.

Now, the last man to talk knew he didn't have a chance of winnin' that there pup
on account of all them tall-tales the others told was so good.
So he jest said:
"I never told a lie in my life."

"You get the pup!"
said the owner of the hound dog.
And everyone else agreed with him!
