Lyrics

a boy and his dog

my dog, Duke, never liked me too much
oh he'd growl and he'd snarl at one wayward touch
but I loved that ol' boy right up to the end
'cause my dog, Duke, was my best friend

and my dog, Duke, wasn't too proud to beg
he was thirty pounds over weight with one bad leg
just a bastard of some beagle and a basset hound
but my dog, Duke, was the best dog around

well, I've had other dogs and I've got to say
they were all fine people in their own way
everyone's different but there's a curse
that your heart never opens like it does for the first

and my dog, Duke wasn't too proud to beg
he was thirty pounds over weight with one bad leg
just a bastard of some beagle and a basset hound
but my dog, Duke, was the best dog around

I know it seems absurd that I should talk about it now
so many years have passed since then
but sometimes when I sleep I dream about us there
walking down the railroad tracks again
walking down the railroad tracks again

well, people come and people go
some hurry past quickly and some drift by slow
but one thing's clear through the haze of the fog
that there's no greater love than a boy and his dog

my dog, Duke, wasn't too proud to beg
he was thirty pounds overweight with one bad leg
just a bastard of some beagle and a basset hound
but my dog, Duke, was the best dog, yeah
my dog, Duke, was the best dog, yeah
my dog, Duke, was the best dog around
