lyrics

I had a dog when I was just 14
went sniffin’ down a bear that lived upstream
I swear that dog was looking for a fight;
she really could bark and she really could bite
Well she came home with a bloody black mane,
and her bark and her bite never quite the same
Never heard a word from that big brown bear
who lived in the hollow where the creek ran fair

I was a good boy; I did just right
but a bad man grew out of me one night
I lost my lover in a starless sky
with the curse and the spite of a word let fly 
A part of me knows it's my daddy's way,
yelling some things that you mean to say
A part of me knew that it would be our time
when she woke one day without a hand in mine

Left my soul on the side of the road
where the state line runs and the liquor flows 
I ran back to an empty home
where the little black dog and the bear once roamed

I went into a chapel last Easter time;
a choir was singing "He's a Friend of Mine"
I bowed my head and I said my prayers
and I wished to God that my lover was there
The silver moon and the golden sun,
the countless stars like everyone
I see myself like a grain of sand
or a little black dog tryin’ to make a stand

Give me a car and an open road,
a song to sing and a place to go
Give me my dreams and give me my past
Give me a way to make good times last

I had a dog when I was just 14
went sniffin’ down a bear that lived upstream
