Subject: RE: Req. Songs about Buses
And while we're at it, can anybody tell us how long the Greyhound Bus has been referred to as "The Dog," and by whom?

I think it comes from black people in the southern U.S., but that's because I first heard the term in the early 1980s from my friend Charlie from Mississippi.
