Christmas Carols

As Christmas approaches we like to gather around the fire and sing Christmas carols. Here’s a contemporary favorite, “Away in a Dog House.”

Sung to the tune of “Away in a Manager”

Away in a dog house,
No crib for his bed
The little dog Owen
Laid down his sweet head

The stars in the bright sky
Looked down where he lay
The little dog Owen
Asleep on the hay

The cattle are lowing
The poor doggie wakes
But little dog Owen
No barking he makes

I love thee, dog Owen
Run ’round and don’t bite
And stay by my side,
‘Til morning is nigh.

Be near me, dog Owen,
I ask you to stay
Close by me forever
And beg every day

Chase all the dear children
In thy tender care
And take them to heaven
To bark at them there.

The Inspiration. Little Dog Owen, Asleep
