God is a wild old dog,
Someone left out on the highway.
I seen him running by me,
He don't belong to noone now.

They dropped him out on 93.
Mange was setting in on his hips and on his knees.
Between the highways runnin north and south
They pulled on over and put him out

Willie said he was old and goin blind.
Momma told me how she didn't mind.
When Willie kicked him with his shoe,
He just climbed on in just like he knew

God is a wild old dog
Someone left out on the highway
I seen him runnin by me
He don't belong to noone now

It's lonely on the highway
Sometimes a heart can turn to dust
Get whittled down to nothin
Broken down and crushed
In with the bones of wild old dogs
Wild old dogs

They dropped him out on 93
Tall grass was waving there jyust like the sea
He tore off runnin like we set him free
Just disapperaed right in front of me

God is a wild old dog
Someone left out on the highway
I seen him runnin by me
He don't belong to noone now
He don't belong to noone now.
