Fred Eaglesmith – I Shot Your Dog lyrics

Hello, neighbour
I've been meaning to talk to you
I've been putting it off
Somethin' I got to do
I've been living with a secret
That keep me awake
There's just somethin'
I got to say
I shot your dog
He was on my property
Thought he was a coyote on the run
I've been missing some chickens
So I pulled the trigger
I feel so bad 'bout what I'd done
You don't have to say nothin'
I could tell how you feel
I'd feel the same if it was me
I'm awfully sorry
If I could make it up to you
In any old way
Tell me what to do
I shot your dog
He was on my property
Thought he was a coyote on the run
I've been missing some chickens
So I pulled the trigger
I feel so bad 'bout what I'd done
Got an old coon hound
If it'll make you feel better
She coming in next week
You get the pick of the litter
I shot your dog
He was on my property
Thought he was a coyote on the run
I've been missing some chickens
So I pulled the trigger
I feel so bad 'bout what I'd done
I feel so bad 'bout what I'd done
