"Stray Dog" as written by and Tom T. Hall....
You're caught in a trouble you mangy pup
Now how you gonna brag about a bad bringin' up
Your pappy was a hound dog son of a gun
You know what they say about a father and son
Stray dog you're just like me (stray dog)
You ain't nothin' more now than you're ever gonna be
Yeah your big long ear's about chewed off
I guess you been a fightin' with the big dog boss
Now you ain't asked if they invented the lift
I'm a forty feet up and I'm a countin' your ribs
Hey stray dog you're a lover boy too (stray dog)
There's a puppy down the street looks just like you

Well I wonder where you've been you're a terrible sight
You must've had a litter off the floor last night
Well I know how you're feelin' I wish I could help
But I got a lotta troubles as ever myself
Hey stray dog you ramblin' fool (stray dog)
But I know how you're feelin' I'm a stray dog too
Yeah you're just like me you're a hurtin' pal I left my home and I left my gal

Yeah I'm lonesome but I ain't a gonna change
Cause I just can't wear a collar and a chain
Stray dog you're just like me (stray dog)
You ain't nothin' more now than you're ever gonna be
No you ain't nothin' more now than you're ever gonna be (stray dog)
You ain't nothin' more now than you're ever gonna be
