Me And You And A Dog Named Boo

In 1971 Lobo released his debut album and this song was a single from that album "Introducing Lobo". He was trying to write song with the phrase "you and me" in it, but then decided to flip it to "me and you".

And while contemplating what else to write, his German Shepard dog named Boo began staring at him thru the glass doors from the backyard and a song was born. The song was his 2nd most successful behind I'd Love You To Want Me.   

  • Drop D Tuning = No
  • Capo = 4th fret
  • Rhythm = a steady down up down up
  • Picking = No but a few riffs blended in
  • Chords = D, G, A, C
