about

One summer night, in the 80s I think, I was in Northern Michigan, club called the Lumber Jack - went to hear Derrell Syria's band. We noticed an incredibly vivacious young woman, charismatic, all eyes on her as she danced free lance with various men. Everyone knew her as the Queen of the Yellow Dog… Yellow Dog Plain, a local area of blue berries and bears. She left early, jumped in her jeep and… well, the song tells the sad story.

lyrics

1.

she was so vivacious she turned every head
laughter was her mantra all she ever said
they called her Queen of the Yellow Dog Queen of the Yellow Dog

2.
she left grievin children and a thousand friends
weepin disbelievin she could ever end
they called her Queen of the Yellow Dog Queen of the Yellow Dog

3.
she was dancin lively at the Lumber Jack
she left kinda early and she's never comin back
they called her Queen of the Yellow Dog Queen of the Yellow Dog


salty tears wailin women gnashing teeth police lights spinnin

4.
she was drivin lon'ly on an unpaved road
headin for a skiddin and a deadly roll
they called her Queen of the Yellow Dog Queen of the Yellow Dog

5.
she was so vivacious she turned every head
laughter was her mantra all she ever said

they called her Queen of the Yellow Dog Queen of the Yellow Dog
