I shot your dog
Fred Eaglesmith

Well, hello, neighbor. I been meaning to talk to you.
I been putting it off. It's something I gotta do.
I been living with a secret. Been keeping me awake.
There's just something I gotta say:

I shot your dog. He was on my property.
I thought he was a coyote, on the run.
I been missing some chickens, so I pulled the trigger.
I feel so bad 'bout what I done.

You don't have to say nothin'. I can 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 way, tell me what to do.

I shot your dog. He was on my property.
I thought he was a coyote, on the run.
I been missing some chickens, so I pulled the trigger.
I feel so bad 'bout what I done.

Got an old coon hound. If it'll make you feel better,
She's comin' in next week. You get the pick of the litter.

I shot your dog. He was on my property.
I thought he was a coyote, on the run.
I been missing some chickens, so I pulled the trigger.
I feel so bad 'bout what I done.

How 'bout:

Wildwood Weed--Jim Stafford


Wildwood flower grew wild on the farm
And we never knowed what it was called
Some said it was a flower and some said it was a weed
I didn't give it much thought
One day I was out there talkin' to my brother
And I reached down for a weed to chew on
Things got fuzzy and things got blurry
And then ev'rything was gone
Didn't know what happened but I knew it beat the hell
Out of sniffing burlap

I come to and my brother was there and he said,
"What's wrong with your eyes?"
I said "I don't know, I was chewin' on the weed"
He said, "Let me give it a try"
We spent the rest of that day and most of that night tryin'
To find my brother Bill
Caught up with him about six o'clock the next mornin'
Naked, singing on the windmill
He said he flew up there
I had to fly up and get him down
He was about half crazy

The very next day we picked a bunch of them weeds
And put 'em in the sun to dry
Then we mashed 'em up and we cleaned 'em off
Put 'em in the corn cob pot
Smokin' them wildwood flowers got to be a habit
We never seen no harm
We thought it was kind-a handy
Take a trip and never leave the farm
Big 'ole puff of that wildwood weed next thing you know
You're just wand'ring 'round behind the little animals

All good things got to come to an end
It's the same with the wildwood weeds
One day this feller from Washington come by
And spied one and turned white as a sheet
And they dug and they burned
And they burned and they dug and they killed
All our cute little weeds and then they drove away
We just smiled and waved sittin' ther on that sack o' seeds

I re-wrote this for a guy singer and I'm hoping the band likes the idea.

This was never the way I planned
Not my intention
I got so brave, drink in hand
Lost my discretion
You’re not who, I’m used to
Just wanna try you on
I’m curious cause your ass
Caught my attention

I kissed a girl and I liked it
The taste of her vodka tonic
I kissed a girl just to try it
If my wife asks, I’ll deny it
It felt so wrong, she felt so right
Don’t mean I’ll get laid tonight
I kissed a girl and I liked it
I liked it

No I don’t even know her name
It doesn’t matter
She’s my experimental game
Just human nature
It’s not what married guys should do
Not how we should behave
But I've been married 13 years
So I'm dying to get laid

So I kissed a girl and I liked it
The taste of her vodka tonic
I kissed a girl just to try it
My wife might throw a shit fit
I felt her tits against my chest
Don’t mean to get wood I guess
I kissed a girl and I liked it
I liked it


I have a "porno chorus" in case this goes over well.

Thanks man.

The Katy Perry lyric ends with "hard to obey" and I thought about keeping that, but the parody needs to get more intense at that point. It's gonna be a slow burn for the audience. The idea is to get the attention of the people at the bar and not just the people who were watching us anyway. Most of them won't know what's going on until the first chorus and I hope they have a "holy shit" moment.

We do this with "Breakdown" (Tom Petty) - we do it in a reggae style, and so some people don't know what it is until Dean sings "BRrrrrrrrEAK! -- down, goaheadngimmitome"

According to you
I'm stupid,
I'm useless,
I can't do anything right.
According to you
I'm difficult,
hard to please,
forever changing my mind.
I'm a mess in a dress,
can't show up on time,
even if it would save my life.

But according to him
I'm beautiful,
incredible,
he can't get me out of his head.

Everything is opposite,
I don't feel like stopping it,
so baby tell me what I got to lose.

According to you

I'm moody,

Why can't you see me through his eyes?
It's too bad you're making me decide.

According to me

you're useless,
you can't do anything right.

get your hankies ready...
this is "our song" Mrs.G and I...
.
I Knew I Loved You lyrics ( Savage Garden )
Songwriters: Jones, Daniel; Hayes, Darren;

Hmm ohh, I will come
Maybe it's intuition
Somethings you just don't question
Like in your eyes, I see my future in an instant
And there it goes, I think I've found my best friend

I know that it might sound
More than a little crazy
But I believe

I knew I loved you before I met you
I think I dreamed you into life
I knew I loved you before I met you
I have been waiting all my life


There's just no rhyme or reason
Only a sense of completion
And in your eyes, I see the missing pieces
I'm searching for, I think I've found my way home

I know that it might sound
More than a little crazy
But I believe

I knew I loved you before I met you
I think I dreamed you into life
I knew I loved you before I met you
I have been waiting all my life

Ooh hoo ooo, hoo hoo ooo ohh
A thousand angels dance around you
(Ooh hoo, hoo ooo hoo ooo hoo hoo hoo)
I am complete now that I have found you

I knew I loved you before I met you
I think I dreamed you into life
I knew I loved you before I met you
I have been waiting all my life

I knew I loved you before I met you
I think I dreamed you into life
I knew I loved you before I met you
I have been waiting all my life

I knew I loved you before I met you, I knew I loved you
(Ooh hoo ooo, hoo hoo ooo)
I knew I loved you before I met you, I knew I loved you
(Ooh hoo ooo, hoo hoo hoo)
I knew I loved you before I met you
(Oh oh, ohh ohh, oh oh oh ay ay yea oh)
I knew I loved you before I met you, I knew I loved you
I knew I loved you before I



( can't believe the lyrics site actually added in the "ohh hoo^'s )

reminds me of that Bright Eyes song:

This is the first day of my life
I swear I was born right in the doorway
I went out in the rain suddenly everything changed
They're spreading blankets on the beach

Yours is the first face that I saw
I think I was blind before I met you
Now I don’t know where I am
I don’t know where I’ve been
But I know where I want to go

And so I thought I’d let you know
That these things take forever
I especially am slow
But I realize that I need you
And I wondered if I could come home

Remember the time you drove all night
Just to meet me in the morning
And I thought it was strange you said everything changed
You felt as if you'd just woke up
And you said “this is the first day of my life
I’m glad I didn’t die before I met you
But now I don’t care I could go anywhere with you
And I’d probably be happy”

So if you want to be with me
With these things there’s no telling
We just have to wait and see
But I’d rather be working for a paycheck
Than waiting to win the lottery
Besides maybe this time is different
I mean I really think you like me

I just wanna drink til I'm not thirsty,
I just wanna sleep til I'm not tired,
I just wanna drive til I run out of highway,
Under a purple sky.

~Kid Rock


That better be on my tombstone, or Ima haunt some damn body.

Like anyone would be
I am flattered by your fascination with me
Like any hot-blooded woman
I have simply wanted an object to crave
But you, you're not allowed
You're uninvited
An unfortunate slight

Must be strangely exciting
To watch the stoic squirm
Must be somewhat heartening
To watch shepherd need shepherd
But you you're not allowed
You're uninvited
An unfortunate slight

Like any uncharted territory
I must seem greatly intriguing
You speak of my love like
You have experienced love like mine before
But this is not allowed
You're uninvited
An unfortunate slight

I don't think you unworthy
I need a moment to deliberate

This song, especially these lyrics have special meaning to me. I spent a long time doing things that weren't working. I put a lot of energy and earnest effort into trying to "make things work", and good things did come during this experience. But I can see now, what I couldn't see then, that I was training myself to become an expert in stuff that doesn't work. I see now how valuable that training is, now that my energy and earnest effort are rewarded instead of suspected.

I can laugh out loud now, only now, in thanks for my experience and in thanks for my reward. I dedicated this song to my girlfriend and we're both happy about it. Reading and talking with a few of my friends about the agonies they've endured, I want to turn back and shout this song to them in encouragement as we follow the same path. Come on! Don't give up! Trust me, it's worth it. You're worth it.

Laugh Out Loud by Robert Cray

I can look back now at all the years
I paid my dues
Every broken heart, every dead end
All those blues

It don't matter now
The tears I've waded through
I can laugh out loud
I ended up with you

I can laugh out loud
I ended up with you

I can laugh out loud
At all the times I failed the test
Lost someone
And came out second best

I can see now
I had to learn a thing or two
I was practicing then
To get it right for you

Ohh, I can laugh out loud

(Guitar solo)

Life and love
Ain't it a mystery
This road I've struggled down
Has thrown some curves at me

Who would have guessed
The grand-prize would be mine?
This late in the game
This far down the line?

I can look back now at all the years
I paid my dues
Every broken heart, every dead-end
All those blues

It don't matter now
The tears I've waded through

Ohh, I can laugh out loud
I ended up with you

I can laugh out loud
I ended up with you

Ohh, I can laugh out loud
I ended up with you

I can laugh out loud
I ended up with you

When they move to rhythm of love

You just need to feel that way once...

Many people tell you that they're your friend
You believe them
You need them
For what's round the river bend
Make sure that you're receiving the signals they send
'Cause brother you've only got two hands to lend
Maybe there's someone who makes you weep
And some nights loom up ahead
When you're asleep
Some days there's things on your mind you should keep
Sometimes it's tougher to look than to leap
Better watch out for the Skin Deep
Better watch out for the Skin Deep
Brother watch out watch out for the Skin Deep
Brother watch out watch out for the Skin Deep
Better watch out for the Skin Deep
One day the track that you're climbing gets steep
Your emotions are frayed
And your nerves are starting to creep
Just remember the days
As long as the time that you keep
Brother you better watch out for the Skin Deep
Better watch out for the Skin Deep
Better watch out for the Skin Deep
Brother watch out watch out for the Skin Deep
Brother watch out watch out for the Skin Deep
Better watch out for the Skin Deep

A long December and there's reason to believe
Maybe this year will be better than the last
I can't remember the last thing that you said as you were leaving
Oh the days go by so fast

And it's one more day up in the canyons
And it's one more night in Hollywood
If you think that I could be forgiven
I wish you would

The smell of hospitals in winter
And the feeling that it's all a lot of oysters, but no pearls
All at once you look across a crowded room
To see the way that light attaches to a girl

And it's one more day up in the canyons
And it's one more night in Hollywood
If you think you might come to California
I think you should

Drove up to Hillside Manor sometime after 2 a.m.
And talked a little while about the year
I guess the winter makes you laugh a little slower
Makes you talk a little lower about the things you could not show her

And it's been a long December and there's reason to believe
Maybe this year will be better than the last
I can't remember all the times I tried to tell myself
To hold on to these moments as they pass

And it's one more day up in the canyon
And it's one more night in Hollywood
It's been so long since I've seen the ocean
I guess I should
