"tether" as written by and Damien Jurado....
Come oh come away Heather
Who is the boy that you keep by your arm
Drags a cat around by a tether
Who is the boy that you keep by your arm

I must say he looks not familiar
Is he a stranger from some other town
The town folks say he looks quite peculiar
They've never seen his kind come around

Tell me oh tell me will he be your husband
Will you oh will you be his bride
Will you stay in the house and provide him with children
Are you sure he will not leave your side

When tears fill your eyes, whom shall you run to
You can run to the house on the hill
In this house you will find me standing
By a window waiting for you

    General CommentI think it's about a father asking his daughter about the boy she is with (or it could be a former lover talking to his ex) and telling her that if ever this man hurts her and she needs to get away, he will always be waiting.
