Who walked the dog?
Lost in the fog
Squat down below
Tongue to the snow
Oh the coyote called
He wants back his hide
Well baby
Where to start?
Give me back my bones
And maybe we can talk

Between the sheets
It was just you and me
Screaming so loud
Staring so proud
Oh loud

Who are you?
Said the sun to the moon
La da di da
La da di da
Eclipse, my hips are all yours tonight
Hurry up, baby
Hurry up, baby
Or get out of my sight

    General CommentFrom the Mountain Man website:

    "Molly wrote the dog song while visiting her best friend Ally in New Orleans. She was feeling fairly lovesick and lost in tropical chaos. Ally’s living room floor was covered in potting soil, small seeds and larger green leaves (which could easily have been made into wings or a boat) and a guitar with only three top strings. With the help of the guitar, Molly’s questions came out to comfort her, to tell the fall’s unfamiliarly warm night air “I belong too”, making the Dog Song."

    General CommentOne of my favorites of theirs. Albeit simple, very moving.
