You find this acoustic song on the "Live! in Europe"-album from 1972,
not an original Rory-composition, but a fine work-out of theold Blind
Boy Fuller song. Rory himself played it for years.
I think for the '72 recording he used his Martin acoustic,later indeed
he prefered a restaurated 30er National.
A little part towards the end I couldn't finger out yet, sorry.

[Lyrics]
Well I'd know my dog
anywhere I hear him bark
Well, I'd know my rider if I see her in the dark

ain't it cold for you, mother
when you say you don't love me?
Well that's alright woman, you gonna need my help someday

you didn't say you didn't love me
when you were stretched out across my bed
you're drinkin' moonshine whisky and talking all outta your
head

ain't but two kinda people
in this world that I can't stand
that's a lying woman and a cheatin', knockin' man

Well, I feel like snapping
my pistol in your face
I'm gonna let the graveyard be your resting place

Well I'd know my dog
anywhere I hear him bark
Well, I'd know my rider if I see her in the dark
