Dog Gone Country Blues

I pulled into my drive the other day
Without the keys to open up my door.
I thought I might have left them on the bar
At Hank and Amy’s Country Bunker Ranch.

I could see the eyes upon me now
Peering through the window of my house.
Two little balls of fur with wagging tails
Waiting for a chance to chase a ball.

I tapped upon the glass to say “hello”;
It only seemed to make the matters worse.
It’s not the way that they communicate
Runnin ‘round in circles chasin tails.

They sadly watched me slowly drive away
Barking I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry.
