Greyhound

Greyhound

I left home
About a year ago
I was chasing my dreams
But I didn’t know
How fast dreams could go

I played gigs
In some Nashville bars
But in Music City
Finding work is hard
Cause everyone’s a star

One day I saw
A dog out in the street
I was in need of a friend
So I thought I’d see
If he’d be friends with me

Chorus:
They say a dog is a man’s best friend
From where I sit I’d have to agree with them
I’m gonna lean back and sink into
The sound of this Greyhound’s howl
As it carries me home to you

See the road
Is such a lonely place
I never missed anything
Quite the same way
I missed seeing your face

Chorus:
They say a dog is a man’s best friend
From where I sit I’d have to agree with them
I’m gonna lean back and sink into
The sound of this Greyhound’s howl
As it carries me home to you

Bridge:
There’s never been a sound half as nice
As the sound of this old dog rolling through the night
Every time I hear those big wheels roll
I want to stand up and holler “go dog go”

Chorus:
They say a dog is a man’s best friend
From where I sit I’d have to agree with them
I’m gonna lean back and sink into
The sound of this Greyhound’s howl
As it carries me home to you
