The Shepherd's Dog

from by Loren Radis

lyrics

You were always the strong and the silent type
Slept with one eye open all your life
There was no hate in your heart
And no innocent blood on your hands

And you could have flown away from this life
Held that pedal down through the night
The sun’s comin’ up and the
Sea isn’t so far away

Not so far to go
No it won’t take long
Just to find a home
For the shepherd’s dog

You said “No one is blameless these crazy days
Like losing that key down the rooftop drain
So let every man prove he’s
Better than where he’s come from”

They called you their friend in the better times
They ate you alive when you spoke your mind
You said “All men have sinned and
We all have our crosses to bear”

And you died all alone in that darkened room
Your last words, they echoed in the concrete tomb
You said “God’s got His plan and
My rest isn’t so far away”

Not so far to go
No it won’t take long
Just to find a home
For the shepherd’s dog

Not so far to go
No it won’t take long
Just to find a home
For the shepherd’s dog

For the shepherd’s dog
