  • "SLEEPY DOG"
  • (Guy Thomas) 1977

 

  • You can see him swayin' outside the door
  • The old man's rockin' and talkin' to Eleanor
  • She come over to take Rover out for a jog
  • The old man loves that sleepy dog
  •  
  • Well old Rover gets lazy
  • In the summer heat
  • Now he don't wake up for nothing
  • Except to eat
  • He's a bloodshot, bloodhound 
  • Layin' like a log
  • And the old man loves that sleepy dog

  • Well now, I've been traveling for so long
  • Can't sing anything but these sad,sad songs
  • I lost my sense of purpose
  • In the miles
  • The distance wore away my desire
  • The distance wore away
  • The distance wore away my desire
  • For the higher things in life
  • Now I'm content payin' no rent
  • And livin' off the wife
  • I sit and listen to the old man's stories
  • About him and his dog
  • The old man loves that sleepy dog
  •  
  • Well now, I've been traveling for so long
  • Can't sing anything but these sad,sad,sad songs
  • And I lost my sense of direction
  • In the miles
  • The distance wore away my desire
  • The distance wore away
  • The distance wore away my desire
  • For the higher things in life
  • Now I'm content payin' no rent
  • And livin' off the wife
  • I sit and listen to the old man's stories
  • About him and his dog
  • The old man loves that sleepy dog
  • You know he loves that sleepy dog
  • The old man he loves that sleepy dog
