Lyrics

Life's Too Short To Hunt With An Ugly Dog
© 2007 lyric & melody by Anni Lichty

Granddaddy had a way with words
He helped to raise us boys up right
Every Sunday we'd be there in church
And we knew we'd be walkin' back if we started a fight
I remember I was leavin' home
We were loadin' up
My old pickup truck
He said boy before you go
There's some things you're gonna need to know

Take care of your lady or somebody else will
Be there for your babies - it's a one shot deal
If a friend's got a burden it's your duty to bear it
Son if you're hurtin' don't be too proud to share it
Life's too sweet to go around with your head in a fog
Life's too short to hunt with an ugly dog

Granddaddy was an honest man
A stranger never crossed his path
Sealed a deal with just the shake of his hand
And if you needed a favor you didn't even have to ask
I remember him tellin' me
Every day is a gift
Make the most of it
He found the good in everything
And he practiced what he preached

Take care of your lady or somebody else will
Be there for your babies - it's a one shot deal
If a friend's got a burden it's your duty to bear it
Son if you're hurtin' don't be too proud to share it
Life's too sweet to go around with your head in a fog
Life's too short to hunt with an ugly dog

He lived eighty-seven years on this earth and always had a smile on his face
Every time I think about those simple words it takes me to a better place

Take care of your lady or somebody else will
Be there for your babies - it's a one shot deal
If a friend's got a burden it's your duty to bear it
Son if you're hurtin' don't be too proud to share it
Life's too sweet to go around with your head in a fog
Life's too short to hunt with an ugly dog

He said life's too sweet to go around with your head in a fog
Life's too short to hunt with an ugly dog
