God Spelled Backwards
LYRICS
1) Spent too many days home alone
Waiting on some telephone
Condition of death prone
Chorus:
When it comes to The End
Best thing for heart's mend
Man's best of friends
Maybe man's only friend?

2) People want to stare and gawk
Behind your back talk, talk, talk
Think it's time to take you for a walk
(chorus)

3) People want to chastise me
No, they won't let me be
All you want is the closest tree
(chorus)

4) Oh, oh dog gone it!
Forget the people flaunted
Nevermore to be wanted
(chorus)
Chords: E A E B7 / E G A C B7 E; 4/4 Blues

                        A      
You ain't nothin' but a hound dog, Crying all the time

                        D                         A
You ain't nothin' but a hound dog, Crying all the time

Well, you ain't never caught a rabbit, And you ain't no friend of mine

                  A      
They said you was high-classed, but that was just a lie

                  D                                 A
They said you was high-classed, but that was just a lie

Who Is The Bad Dog?
LYRICS
You lay down with humans
You get up with fleas
You lay down with humans
You get up with fleas
�cause those damned humans
Do whatever they please

Sleeping 'round town
Words goin' round
'cause those damned humans
Will bring ya to your knees

You get down with humans
You wake-up to fleas
'cause those damned humans
Do whatever they please

Cryin' and scratchin'
Mange and sleaze
'cause those damned humans
Do whatever they please

Who's the bad dog now
Them or we
'cause those damned humans
Do whatever they please
Chords: A D A / D E A


Run, Dog, Run
YRICS
Though you're just a puppy
It's never too early
Though you're just a puppy
You "Run, Dog, run!"
The moving keeps you happy
Are good and ready
The moving keeps you happy
So, run, Dog, run!
Maybe his bark is worse than his bite
But with a bark like that...
Bite he might

Have you figured out
Confused or in doubt
Have you figured out
You better run, Dog, run
Getting a little close
Close within a nose
Getting a little close
You better run, Dog, run
Maybe his bark is worse than his bite
But with a bark like that...
Bite he might
Chords: F Ab F / F Db Ab F / Fm7 Fm F


How I Roll
LYRICS
I don't know what's come over me
Call it loss of control
'cause obviously
It's plain to see
I see $hit and I roll
... that's how I roll

Get the smell of you
Can't help what I do
Found your shoe
Now I'm going to chew, chew, chew
... takes it's toll
I see $hit and I roll
... that's how I roll

When I see your door's smallest crack
My opportunity to attack
Like an electric jolt
Flash! I'm gonna bolt
... the smallest hole
I see $hit and I roll
... that's how I roll
Chords: E / D A E


Set Me Free
LYRICS
Oh, please...
I don't need a collar
I don't need a leash
Makes me wince when you say fence
Hence,
Why don't you see your way to set me free

I hate it when you holler
Promise you I'll cease
Suggested as my best defense
Hence,
Why don't you see your way to set me free

Maybe today is my lucky day
What do you say
Can you find a way
If you let me be
Independently
Why don't you see your way to set me free?
Chords: F# B / C#7 B F#


Baby, Please Don't Go
LYRICS
I don't know ho to get through the day
If you stay home, we can play
As your best friend, I say
Oh, no! Please don't go away
(Baby, don't go away)

When you leave and shut the door
I cry, and I cry for more
As your best friend, I say
Oh, no! Please don't go away

Leaving me tears me apart
I don't know where to start
As your best friend, I say
Oh, no! Please don't go away

When I hear you open the door
I beg, and I beg for more
As your best friend, I say
Oh, no! Please don't go away
Chords: Em Bm Em / C D Em Bm Em


Pent-up Energy
LYRICS
Energy just won't relent
No matter how much you've spent
What are the odds of content
Ask the Gods
Pent-up energy
Young dog's strategy
Prepare for release
Forget the "cease"

Running low? No, not a dent
Watch it grow... is as was went
Is borrowed always lent
Hellbent

Sprung from young
Way to stay
Life's foray
The swan sung
Chords: Em G A / D Em; 200 BPM


Here's Some Love
LYRICS
I don't care if you're an atheist
Or feel you've been "God blessed"
Here's some love
Unnnn... conditional (love, love, love)
Lots more love
Unconditional (love, love, love)

I don't care if you have bad hair
Or if there is hardly any there
Here's some love
Unnnn... conditional (love, love, love)
Lots more love
Unconditional (love, love, love)

I don't care how you politic
If it makes me ill... if it makes me sick
Here's some love
Unnnn... conditional (love, love, love)
Lots more love
Unconditional (love, love, love)

I don't care if there's toys in the attic,
Skeletons in the closet,
A sports fanatic,
Or a leakin' faucet
Here's some love
Unnnn... conditional (love, love, love)
Lots more love
Unconditional (love, love, love)
Chords: A A7 / Em G A / A Em G A


Kisses
LYRICS
During the day nobody misses...
No, no one misses...
You more than me
In the morning, I'll wake you with kisses
Guess that's what's meant to be

Forget bane, vinegar, pisses
I can offer you sanity
In the morning, I'll wake you with kisses
Guess that's what's meant to be

Thankful of life's blisses
Comforting you comforts me
In the morning, I'll wake you with kisses
Guess that's what's meant to be

Turn out the light
I'll get in tight
Keep your warm
On a winter's night
Chords: Em7 E / C D B7 B7 C D E


Throw The Dog A Bone
LYRICS
Why don't you throw the dog a bone
You leave ma all alone!
Yeah, give the dog a bone

I don't think I ask that much
You can skip the bath and such
You leave me all alone
Why don't you throw the dog a bone?

I've got this itch I just can't scratch
No, I don't think I need another bath
You've got a rodent or rabbit, I'll catch
It's like 1+1... do the math
Why don't you throw the dog a bone?

I lick your floor 'till clean and more
And do you realize how I fertilize
Why don't you throw the dog a bone
You leave ma all alone!
Yeah, give the dog a bone
Chords: E A G E / G A B7


The Look In Your Eyes
LYRICS
Somebody spilled my drink
And I'm starting to know
I think
Pause in awe
Guilty paws
No surprise
I can tell by the look in your eyes

Somebody ate my shoe
And I'm starting to think
It's you
Pause in awe
Guilty paws
No surprise
I can tell by the look in your eyes

Somebody spilled my drink
And I'm starting to know
I think
Somebody drank my drink
And it's starting to show
I know
Somebody fumbles n' stumbles
Bet if you could you would mumble
Pause in awe
Guilty paws
No surprise
I can tell by the look in your eyes
Chords: E B E / G A G A A G E


In Dog Years
LYRICS
Call it insane
How you can complain
Hard to explain
Your years remain
For every one
I get seven
While you get to run
I'm in heaven
All dogs run with gods
Hope you farewell well

All of my fears
Are in dog years
As mine draws near
Your path is clear
For every one
I get seven
While you get to run
I'm in heaven
All dogs run with gods
Hope you farewell well
Chords: A D / A E / A D E A


The Pointer
LYRICS
Did you hear that noise
When I hear that noise
Strike a pose with poise
When I hear that sound
I turn around
Strike a pose with poise
Before making a noise
Not 'til I find out
Do I shout out
I've got my eye on you
There's not much you can do
Suppose it's time to break the pose
Take off running
For you gunning
You get to watch
'cause you're the catch
Now fetch!
Chords: C Am C / C D G C D G / C G (walkdown G D C)


Walking The Dog
Coversong
Written by Rufus Thomas
Made famous by Rufus Thomas, The Rolling Stones and Aerosmith

A7
Baby, back
Dressed in black
Silver buttons all down her back
High hose, tippy toes
A
She broke the needle and she can sew
            D
Walking the dog        A
I'm just a walking the dog
       E7
If you don't know how to do it
     D7                       A7
I'll show you how to walk the dog
C'mon now c'mon

I asked her mother for fifteen cents
I see you ever jumped the fence
I jumped so high, touched the skies
Didn't get back 'til a quarter to five
Walking the dog

Tell me Mary, what's your twelve
How does your garden grow
What with silver bells and cockle shells
And pretty maids all in a row
Walking the dog
(repeat 1st verse)



Three Dog Night
LYRICS
The dog days of summer
Are coming to a close
The dog days of summer
You remember those
You know if Fido begs
Tail between legs
There's nothing you can do
... but let 'em go
Soon those winter nights
Will be getting plenty cold
If calendar told
Another year old
Bring on the three dog night
We'll be alright
Holding you
The way I do
Chords: B E F#


Through Your Eyes
LYRICS
Curious to know
Where your thoughts go
Curious to know
What you know
Believe me
If I could see
The I's
Through your eyes
Then, again
Does a human
Look like dog or man?
If I could see
What you see
When you look at me
I've got four paws
All with claws
Two eyes and a nose
Who knows?
Here goes!
Chords: C D E / D A E / G A E / A G E


Mixed Breed
LYRICS
The problem when you're purebred
Is you're likely brain dead
Yes, indeed
When you inbreed
(ole' gene greed)
Sorry to perplex
A tad too complex
Better to mix
Yes, indeed
To be mixed breed
You'll concede
Go on take a stab
Yes, a lil' lab
And I've found
There's some hound
When they through a fit
'cause you've got some pit
The bit of pit
Call their bull, dog
Who's the hog?
Yeah, they're full
Of it
Chords: F Bb Db F / F Db C7 F


(Don't Go) Chasing Cars
LYRICS
Careful with your "wish for's"
Mindful of the four doors
Noooo... don't go chasing cars
Catching one mars and scars
Ends your life
Brings on master strife

Use to have a gal
My best pal
Watched a fender bend her
How I cry and cry

Look out! What the #uck
Here comes a dually 2-ton truck
Crazy dog's run amuck

Playing between yellow lines
Finds you tip-toeing through mines
Noooo... don't go chasing cars
Catching one mars and scars
Ends your life
Brings on master strife
Chords: C / Bb F C; 176 BPM Jive


Run On
LYRICS
Soft and warm while lying
Under the setting sun
Just a break from trying
This day is far from done
Run on

Don't worry that the light goes dim
Soon the moon will dawn
Chances are far from slim
And time is far from gone
Run on

Even on the darkest night
There're stars shinning bright
Queen's protected your pawn
The universe is calm
Run on
Chords: Am7 Em7


In Your Dreams
LYRICS
Here I thought you were deep in sleep
Not an itch... you begin to twitch
Seems you're chasing rabbits in your dreams
Dreaming

Do you dream in black and white
Do you dream all through the night
I mean... wondering what you dream
Scheming, dreaming

Can you smell a cat and mouse
Did they infiltrate the house
Can you dream a silent scream
Meaning
In dreaming
Chords: E A D G E


Far From Home
LYRICS
Now, I've learned how to roam
Maybe I'll never go home
How I love the city lights
Might stay out through the night
But I hear my love calling me home
Don't want to live life all alone

Now better than given a bone
Is learning how far I can roam
How I love the city nights
The lights... so bright
But I hear my love calling me home
Don't want to live life all alone

All you lasses bound with chains
Now we can catch the freedom train
Bound for the promised land
Where humans understand
Can you hear the love calling us home
Don't want to die here all alone
Chords: F#m D Bm


Not My Dog
LYRICS
Yet another cog
"Do you mind if I pet your dog?"
Do you know what I mean
He's his own being
He's not my dog
He's not my dog

No, he's not my property
He's as free as free can be
Believe me
He does as he please
He frees!
He's not my dog
He's not my dog

Release your soul from a noose
Set your heart and mind loose
Do I mind if you pet my dog?
Take your memory for a jog....
He's not my dog
He's not my dog
He does as he please
He frees!
He can start to free your heart
And to your mind be kind
(Man's best therapy
Free as free can be)
Chords: A A7 / C D A / G E



Good Dog
LYRICS
When I start to get the blues
You're the first to get the (k)news
You're a good dog
Misunderstood
You're a good dog
If they only would

When they start to bark at you
Just because you are you
There's not a lot you can do
To help guide them through

When I start to get the blues
You're the bearer of good (k)news
You're a good dog
If they only would
You're a good dog
If they only could
(You know they should)

The world's best therapy
For anything that ails me
Chords: E's / E G D A / G F# E

Hanging out with man's best friend
Hoping these days never end
Please don't come 'round with low down news
Just 'cause you've nothing to lose
The dog gone blues

There's something I want you to know
Hope I'm the first to go
When it's time for my life to end
Hope you're there to send

Please don't come 'round with low down news
Just 'cause you've nothing to lose
The dog gone blues
Chords: E A G E / A G D A / B7 A


Arthur's Dog
King Arthur is a legendary British leader and hero. 
According to medieval history, he led the defense of Britain against the Saxon invaders in the early 6th century. 
There is still a great debate as to whether Arthur existed or is just a myth. 
However, it appears a man name Arthur did live during that time period and that folklore helped keep his memory alive.

The facts that started the legend of King Arthur are:
1) Arthur was a man that lived and led in Britain.
2) Arthur never called himself a king.
3) Arthur loved his dog.

LYRICS
As far as any author
That writes of King Arthur
The only thing they know
Letting his dog go
Broke his heart
When they'd part

Guinevere, my dear
You can't hold a light
The canine time
Gives us might

Broke his heart
When they'd part

No matter how quick
Merlin's magic
You would have to concede
Not up to dog's speed

Broke his heart
When they'd part
Chords: A C D A / Bb A Ab A



The Way The Ball Bounces
LYRICS
That's the way the ball bounces
See a chance, someone pounces
Am I just being think
Is this the short end of the stick

That's the way the cookie crumbles
It's your chance when someone fumbles
Am I just being think
Is that the short end of the stick

Is it up to me
Take advantage of opportunity
Now I'm thinking quick
That's the short end of the stick

Live comes easy
Open eyes see
Chords: C G D / C Em Am



Dogfight!
LYRICS
Dogfight! Dogfight!
On a lark, his bark
Ain't worse than his bite
I mean
Don't get in between
You'll make the scene obscene
Those two dogs could play all day

You might talk low
And I know...
Carry a big stick
But in the thick of it
That stick'll do jack$hit
Dogfight! Dogfight!
On a lark, his bark
Ain't worse than his bite

Every one knows get the hose
You gotta spray a round to calm 'em down
It won't hurt
If you give 'em a lil' squirt
Dogfight! Dogfight!
On a lark, his bark
Ain't worse than his bite
Chords: F# F#7 / C# B F# / F# B F# C#7



Dog Eat Dog World
LYRICS
As my age comes unfurled
Future to the past is hurled
It's a dog eat... dog eat dog eat world
Thinkin' they're at it again
Better put 'em back in their pen
Chances aren't that remote
They'll be at each others throat
Gnawing at the hair on his neck
Teach the meaning of what the heck
Disbelief must have sharpened his teeth
Roll 'em over see what's underneath
Making him bark 'til his lights go dark
Trying to leave more than a mark
As my age comes unfurled
Future to the past is hurled
It's a dog eat... dog eat dog eat world
Chords: A E / D A



Coming Home
LYRICS
It's getting late
Quarter-past eight
Anticipate
Not being alone
I'm sure he'll find his way home

Just can't wait
Half-past eight
Anticipate
Not being alone
I'm sure he'll find his way home

Times all mine
Going on nine
Ain't feelin' fine
Here all alone
I'm sure he'll find his way home
For certain he's on his way home

Then, again
It's almost ten
Seems often
I'm being alone
I'm sure he'll find his way home
For certain he's on his way home

Tongue bite
After midnight
Just ain't right
Still alone
I'm sure he'll find his way home
For certain he's on his way home
He's coming home!
Chords: E A / F# B E



In Or Out?
LYRICS
Can you guess what I'm thinking about
Ohh if someone would just let me out
I got out
I come in

Take another guess on what I'm thinkin'
Ohh if someone would just let me in
I got out
I come in
And then I do it again
I got out
I come in
And then I do it again

Who's the master
And who's the slave
Teach you faster
How to behave

Waiting here makes me want to shout
Can't you see I want to go out
I got out
I come in
And then I do it again
I got out
I come in
And then I do it again
I got out
I come in
And then I do it again

Ohh where to begin
Do I have to beg for you to let me in
I got out
I come in
And then I do it again

I got out
I come in
And then I do it again
I got out
I come in
And then I do it again

And then I do it again

Dig!
LYRICS
Don't ask me what I'm digging for
'cause it's obvious I dig for more
And if you ask me just once more
I'm going to dig and dig for sure
Does it make you feel bigger
I'm just a meager digger
Does it pull your trigger
I'm just a meager digger
I dig love
I dig joy
From above
Dug employ

You say "I'm digging for uranium"
And I've been told you can dig for gold
But I'm growing old
So I dig what I enjoy
I dig love
I dig joy
From above
I employ
Dig what you enjoy
Chords: F# / B A F# C#7 / F# C# B F#



Chasing My Tale
LYRICS
Chasing my tail
The same old tale
So I have found
It does astound
Going round and round and....
Setting sail
It's a fairy tail
Going round and round and....
If you ever feel like you're getting nowhere
Maybe it's because you're unaware
The tale that does offend
Is attached to your very own end
(Leaves you spinning round and round and....)
Is your story about fame and glory
Well after all,
The bigger they come the harder they fall
Your hubris is followed by nemesis
Thus is this...
Transcending
To the happy ending
Going round and round and....
Chords: C G Bb



Yelp For Help
LYRICS
Situation of frustration
When you're fenced in
Remain in containment
Harbor no resentment
Though you know I can fend for myself
I appreciate your help

It's hard to beat
You feed me the meat
Throw in the bone
Make me feel at home
Though you know I can fend for myself
I appreciate your help

You say walk this way
Let me show you the around
Blow off work so we can play all day
You're the best friend I've ever found
Though you know I can fend for myself
I appreciate your help
Chords: E's / G A C B7 E



Jack Dempsey
LYRICS
You might see clumsy
But I'm much more than that
Fight like Jack Dempsey
Move faster than a cat
Did I hear you?
I'm coming through
Will be near you...
I'm plowing through

I might lean toward awkward
But I'm much more than that
Flight like a bird
Moves faster than a cat
Did I hear you?
I'm coming through
Will be near you...
I'm plowing through

You might see a fool
But I'm much more than that
The sharpest tool
Moves faster than a cat
Did I hear you?
I'm coming through
Will be near you...
I'm plowing through
Chords: Em A / C A



Embark
LYRICS
Tear it up. Rip it to shreds
Send it off with the living dead
Rip it up. Start to tear it apart
'til the living dead know to depart
Embark

What the heck try to break its neck
Total wreck better hit the deck
With grace and taste, diver's arc
Truly a knight of the dark
Embark

Just won't quit. Chomp at the bit
Hit a fit in the stomach's pit
Paws with claws going to leave a mark
Razor teeth will show-up a shark
Embark

Shift out of park
Embark
So, I asked him
"Did you get it out of your system?"
Chords: Eb5 E7 / C Am B7



Bull Market (in a China Shop)
LYRICS
I'm sticking my nose
Into other peoples' business
Who knows
If I'll sniff out success
If it comes to blows
I can sprint with finesse
Who knows
If I'll out run the best
We'll test
Will test

Say I'm putting my nose
Into other peoples' business
Who knows
At profit or a loss
I'm getting close
To asset success
Who knows
I could be your boss
We'll test
Will test
Show biz
Pop quiz
Chords: Am C E / Am E


Howling At The Moon
LYRICS
Friday the 13th
Looking for strength
Perfect full moon
For the 'tic of loon
Howling at the moon
They say
You're baying at the moon
Longing for something you can not have
If only that moon would wane in half

Bark into the dark of night
Who causes who more fright?
At the crossroads opposite high noon
Daylight can come none too soon
Follow the pied piper's haunting tune
Blown away by love's typhoon
In the alley of emotions strewn
'til pining for you I become immune
Howling at the moon
They say
You're baying at the moon
Longing for something you can not have
If only that moon would wane in half
Chords: Dm Ebm Em / C A Em / C Em



Bark Up The Wrong Tree
LYRICS
I'm starting to see
I'm barking up the wrong tree
Don't know what comes over me
Just trying to say
I just want to play
Got to find a new way

I'm working to be
An improvement of me
Regain my sanity
Just trying to find
My peace/piece of mind
Be a little more kind

I think... maybe
If I play easy
Calm will overtake me
Could be on my way
To hear their say
A more peaceful day

Toto, Too?
LYRICS
I don't know
Why they call him Fido
Why not
A name like spot
It could be worse, I know
The farmer's dog they call Bingo

Run, Spot
See Spot run, Spot
Why not? Who did?
He's colored solid
It could be worse, I know
The farmer's dog they call Bingo

Heard a few
Spike and Toto, too
Old Yeller
Must have been his color?
It could be worse, I know
The farmer's dog they call Bingo
B I N G O
And, Bingo was his name... ohhhh
Chords: E C7 / C D E



Therapy
LYRICS
What's in a name
Is it one and the same
Don't ask me
They call me therapy
If I could
I'd make you feel good
You know I would
Help the misunderstood

What's in a name
Is it one and the same
Don't ask me
They call me therapy
Whenever I can
I'm man's best friend
I'll be your fan
'til the bitter end

What's in a name
Is it one and the same
Don't ask me
They call me therapy
The best pet to pet
Forget what you regret
You know what they say
Everything will be OK
Chords: G D / C G C D



LYRICS
French Poodle, German Shepherd
Feeling foreign to me
Might as well be a spotted leopard
Or monkey swinging in a tree
I think Im starting to understand
We're all from a foreign land
At the time given birth
On a ride they call Earth

English Sheepdog, Irish Setter
On my own and all alone
Send a sign, write a letter
Homesick without leaving home
I think i"m starting to understand
We're all from a foreign land
At the time given birth
On a ride they call Earth

Boston Terrier, Siberian Husky
It's all Chinese to me
Might as well be some sort-of monkey
Eating bananas, swinging from a tree
I think i"m starting to understand
We're all from a foreign land
At the time given birth
On a ride they call Earth
Chords: Am7 E7 Dm; 157 BPM Bossa Nova



Want to Go for a Ride?
LYRICS
Do you want to go for a ride
Race to your favorite place
Do you want to go for a ride...
In the car?

Stick your head out the window
On our way to chase a shadow
I'm sure you're bound to see
Some Hers n' special She
I'll play guitar, but you'll be the star
Jump! It isn't that far
Do you want to go for a ride
Race to your favorite place
Do you want to go for a ride...
In the car
Near or far?
Chords: Em7 Em E / E G A A G E; 164 BPM Boogie

What you're eating under there?

Underwear? Relative to where?

Crack It Open
Inspired by a dog that found a hazel nut.
LYRICS
If you knew what you had
You might be glad
Got to crack that nut
Instead of "not" why not "why not"?
Why not crack that nut
See what the hide is trying to hide
Look what resides on the inside
I'm trying to plant a little patience
'cause my impatiens have gone wild
(Overdose on child)
No if. and, nor but
Got to crack that nut
Determination beats damnation
Searching for reason
Searching for rhyme
All the time
No if. and, nor but
Got to crack that nut
Chords: A Am A Bb A / G A Em A



Like You
LYRICS
I'm more like you
You know it's true
More like you
Not a matter of "want to"
Though bizarre

Eat, the heart beats

As for love, true
Through and through
Not just animal
Both mammal
Hair and teats
Deeds and feats
Chords: D G E / E F E Dsus4 E



Finding Nemo
Inspired by Nemo, the puppy dog, discovering the water's edge.
LYRICS
Watching the water a while
Listen to the waves roll in (Rollin')
A hypnotic style
Will begin
The sign or the sine
Wave by by
To time... I'm....
See-side
At the Ohhh-cean
Bide no time
Ride the tide
The rhythm of the beat
Auto-tapping feet
Syncopation
Sensation
Chords: A C E A / E A



The Tale Of Rabbit
LYRICS
When you hear that metal clinging
Like an alarm bell ringing
The thunder of the paws
Going to eat you raw
You better run rabbit run rabbit run

With your heartbeat pounding
Toward the corner rounding
Within a hair of the hare
Gonna getcha... almost there
You better run rabbit run rabbit run

Before your innards come undone
This could be your last day under the sun
Bunny, better not be dumb
After all, he's just doing it for fun
You better run rabbit run rabbit run

Lose the battle, his war won
Think you missed the starting gun
Will reduce your hide to none
Unless it's life you shun
You better run rabbit run rabbit run

Make your hole the goal
Or all the sooner...
Lucky foot dinner
You better run rabbit run rabbit run
Chords: G G6 E / C G E; 230 BPM Foxtrot



Friendly Advice
LYRICS
Rubbing the fut the wrong way
He'll likely run away
Lost, lonely... becoming stray
On the hand, might just bleed
The hand that feeds

And it'll never fail
Grabbing him by the tail
Setting sail, going to wail

Kicking a dog when he's down
Unlikely that dog will stick around
On the hand, might just bleed
The hand that feeds

Try taking his food away
Probably not the right day
He might have nothing to say
Or maybe he'll run away
On the hand, might just bleed
The hand that feeds
Chords: B F# / C#7 F# B; 209 BPM 4/4 Blues



People Watching
LYRICS
Sitting here watching the people go by
Making me pause to wonder why
Watching them
Watching them watching me
I am
I see
Sitting here watching the cars go by
Driven insane on the way to die
Watching them
Watching them watching me
I am
I see
Putting on mile-age to earn a wage
Forgot their gauge on how they age
Watching them
Watching them watching me
I am
I see
Sitting here watching the traffic
Their own "exhaust" makes 'em sick
To spite their face, cut off their nose
Never stopping to smell a rose
Watching them
Watching them watching me
I am
I see
Chords: A / C G D A / D A



True Love
Inspired by a puppy dog after he was neutered.
LYRICS
Anesthesia. Anesthesia...
I'm coming to
I'm coming to
Anesthesia. Anesthesia...
I'm coming to
To the loving feeling of you

The raising of the knife
The changing of my life
Scars and mental strife
All fade away someday

In reflection
I've no recollection
But they say someday
We'll be better off this way
Anesthesia. Anesthesia...
I'm coming to
I'm coming to
Anesthesia. Anesthesia...
I'm coming to
To the loving feeling of you

From over population
They say it frees ya
But from stimulation
Gave me amnesia
At least I can feel the love of you
Unconditional
Anesthesia. Anesthesia...
I'm coming to
To the loving feeling of you
Chords: A C E A / Dm A7



Wag
LYRICS
Pat on the back
Gotta like that
Zig-zag
Wag
The tail
(It'll never fail)

Matter of fact
Gotta love that
Zig-zag
Wag
The tail
(It'll never fail)

I'm so happy to see you
Hoping you feel the same way, too
Can't help my tail from wagging
Start to wail. I'm singing.
If you wonder why
It will perplex
Can't try not to blink your eye
Must be a reflex
Zig-zag
Wag
The tail
(It'll never fail)
Em Am G Em / D C E



Guard Dog
LYRICS
Never seems too hard
Being on guard
Just comes natural
As my catch-ya-all
Let out your secret talent

Been gold starred
For being on guard
It's my nature
That's for sure
Let out your secret talent

If awry should go anything
I'm your alarm bell... sure to ring
Let out your secret talent

When evil does lurk around
This hound will keep you save-and-sound
Let out your secret talent
Do what it is you're meant
Find out what it's all about
Let it out
Chords: Drop D tuning / D E / C D E



You And Your Shadow
LYRICS
Where did you go?
Oh, I know
I see your shadow
Just 'round the bend
My friend
Just out of sight
Out-of-sight
Knowing that you're right there
Lets me know you know I care
The love we share
We wear aware

If your scent is sensed
Warms the heart to intense
When love makes sense
Lets you know I know you care
We wear aware
Chords: Bm Bbm Am Em / G E / A E B7 A E; 137 BPM Rock Shuffle



Pull Me Through

Hang tough
If ever there's a dilemma
I need pulled through
I always know
I can count on you
You're strong enough
To pull me through
I can count on you

And won't let go
Then, let 'er rip
Pulled to from fro
You know
You go
Pulled to to from fro
Hold the tight rope
And won't let go
Hold out all hope
Pulled to from fro
I know...
You'll go
Pulled to to from fro
You'll come to my rescue
Pull me through
I can count on you

In Depth

When I look deep in your eyes
See the depth of beauty
An old soul... beyond wise
Be, in depth, the beauty
Big... and dark... and deep
Into my heart you seep
All your previous lives
Culminate in surprise
... deep in your eyes

When I look deep in your eyes
See the depth of reality
An old soul... beyond wise
Being in depth reality
Into our I's
Deep in our eyes
