Hangdog…a country song

HANGDOG

 

When she walked into the house she was cryin’

So momma held her in her arms real tight

He broke it off and broke her heart by lyin’

But momma said that she’d show her the light

 

He’s a hangdog, he’s a mutt

No, he ain’t worth the pain

Don’t shed a tear for a stray like that

Your thoroughbred is on the way

So shoulders back and heads up sweet daughter

Ain’t much more I can say

He’s a hangdog, yeah a mutt

And you weren’t bred like that anyway

 

He took her to the party like she asked him

Then she didn’t see him for the rest of the night

She called her dad to pick up across town

In silence driving until her daddy set her right

 

He’s a hangdog, he’s a mutt

No, he ain’t worth the pain

Don’t shed a tear for a stray like that

Your thoroughbred is on the way

So shoulders back and heads up darling

Ain’t much more I can say

He’s a hangdog, yeah a mutt

And you weren’t bred like that anyway

 

On down the line she holds on to her daughter

As her baby cries at why he acts that way

And remembering  the words her momma taught her

Repeating them much in the same old way…

 

He’s a hangdog, he’s a mutt

No, he ain’t worth the pain

Don’t shed a tear for a stray like that

Your thoroughbred is on the way

So shoulders back and heads up darling

Ain’t much more I can say

He’s a hangdog, yeah a mutt

And you weren’t bred like that anyway

So shoulders back and heads up darling

Ain’t much more I can say

He’s a hangdog, yeah a mutt

And you weren’t bred like that anyway
