Roy Orbison

Roy Kelton Orbison (April 23, 1936 – December 6, 1988), also known by the nickname 'The Big O', was an American singer-songwriter, best known for his distinctive, powerful voice, complex compositions, and dark emotional ballads.

Hey, hound dog man, 
Where you been now,where you been? 
I wish that you were back, 
It was too good to ever end. 
Once in a while someone like you 
Will give everything for what you wanted to do. 

Hey, hound dog man, 
My old friend play it again. 

You gave the world a whole lot of joy 
Now that ain't bad for a country boy 
I just knew you could not lose 
The way you sang rock and roll and blues. 
I still think about these things 
And the memory that it brings 

Hey, hound dog man, 
My old friend,play it again. 
Hey, hound dog man, 
My old friend,play it again 

Sometimes I think about James Dean, 
Sammy Cooke and my teenage queen. 
Doo ron, de ron, de ron, 
Marilyn Monroe and hot rod fun. 
I still think about these things 
And the memory that it brings. 

Hey, hound dog man, 
My old friend,play it again. 
Hey, hound dog man, 
My old friend why did it end? 
Hey, hound dog man, 
My old friend, why did it end.
