DEAD DOG ON A HIGHWAY

Like a dead dog on a highway

Like a dead dog I'm hanging around

Won't you stop and pick me up?

Dig me a deep hole in the ground

 

Wrap me in white linnen

That your mother used to wear

On the day you were born

Once I was a baby dog, too

 

Like a dead dog on a highway

& the big trucks passing by

Won't you put my little body down?

Cover it with boulders out of light

 

Kiss away the dread and blood

& comb my hair & straighten the broken tail

It was dancing up and down

While I was going down the Highway

 

I'm going down the Highway

Till I die
