Song Description

Sometimes it feels like everything is going wrong, especially during the hot, dog days of summer. At those times, we just try to get through it.

Lyrics

DOG DAYS OF SUMMER

VERSE 1
Now I never wanted to be
More than a simple man
But lately things are complicated
Newspapers piling up
Full of news I don?t wanna touch
Telephone?s ringing off the wall
Mailbox is full of bills
Drug cabinet?s full of pills
My blood pressure?s on the rise

CHORUS
Trying to get through
Get through those dog days of summer
With my dog right here at my side
Sun?s beatin? down hot as a blister
I?m trying to find my peace of mind

VERSE 2
Air conditioner?s on the blink
Dirty dishes in the sink
The mercury is on the rise
Lawn needs to be mowed
Mortgage bills that I owe
My wallet might as well be thrown away
When the sun shines make some hay
That?s what farmers always say
But I?m planted here all day

CHORUS
Just trying to
Get through those dog days of summer
With my dog here right at my side
Sun?s beatin? down hot as a blister
I?m trying to find my peace of mind

VERSE 3
When my world is gettin? gray
There?s a place I?m gonna stay
On my porch with my old good dog Ray
Gonna grab my wood guitar
Pick all day ?til I see some stars
Try to sing my troubles all away

CHORUS x 2
Just trying to get through
Get through those dog days of summer
With my dog right here at my side
Sun?s beatin? down hot as a blister
I?m trying to find my peace of mind

Just trying to
Get through those dog days of summer
With my dog right here at my side
Sun?s beatin? down hot as a blister
I?m trying to find my peace of mind
