Man About A Dog

I had to go into the hills and see a Man About a Dog
"Get here before the sun goes down"
And so I get into the truck and turn a right at Friday Hut
I'll come home around the town
The rain it slapped the land from sleep
It was green within a week
Two birds escort me in
The world turning on the flash of a wing

And the worse that it was the better it will be
You held onto the tail and that's a victory
All this talk of how to be happy
And I'm off to see a Man About a Dog

And when I get up to the shack first night I hear the Big Old Cat
Rumbling out at sea
Yeah "come on take the turn to land
Not just a light show and a band
It's the soaking we need"
The farmer dreams of cattle fed
Tonight he's working from his bed
On the roof the heavy drops
That'll break the Silence of the Frogs

And the worse that it was the better it will be
You held onto the tail and that's a victory
All this talk of how to be happy
But not a little content
Naught 'til '21's not a pity
When I'm off to see a Man
Off to see a Man About a Dog

Old farmer limping down the lane
His medal-winner's out again
And he waves at me
And through the wonder of it all
Put on Neil Young at Massey Hall '72 or 3
Yeah and it's dark when I get home
And I feel something coming on
Blindfold, Arvo Pärt
I'm taking everyone on that drive I swear

And the worse that it was the better it will be
You held onto the tail and that's a victory
All this talk of how to be happy
But not a little content

I used to love the Greek women
And now I love Greek men
I'm a Stoic in the morning
Out the city gate before long
Want no part of the new age that's dawning
'Cause I'm off to see a man, off to see a man
I'm off to see a Man About a Dog
I'm taking everyone on that drive I swear
