Song of the Week: “Dog Patch Creeper” by The Velveteens

by Douglas Cowie on 9 August 2019

Each Friday I pick a song–new, old, borrowed, blue–that’s been on my mind and in my ears, and write a short post about it.

This is “Dog Patch Creeper” by The Velveteens:

I’ve posted a handful of songs that feature in Chicano Soul by Ruben Molina because I’ve spent quite a lot of time reading and rereading various parts of it for a project I’m working on. “Dog Patch Creeper” is the kind of song title that makes you want to hear what’s going on, and “Dog Patch Creeper” doesn’t disappoint. This song is from 1959, and it was their second release, after “Oh Baby.” The B-side to “Dog Patch Creeper” is “Johnny’s Jump.”
