Dog on a Chain
Lyrics and Music by Steven Beasley
Copyright © Rio Paso Music (BMI)

Grrrr... angsty, guitar-driven, canine allegory of a dysfunctional relationship. Or maybe it's not allegory? Kinky!

I might bite.

She keeps me waiting, I go for days without a walk.
Nonetheless anticpating, won't you ever stop, ever stop?
Stuck here in the backyard on a scrawny piece of rope.
Not much to do tomorrow except tell myself there's a little bit of hope.

I'm just a DOG ON A CHAIN.
You cheat me, you beat me, you're so inhumane.
Just a DOG ON A CHAIN.
You kill me, you thrill me, you call my name.

I pace the fence at midnight, wonder when you're comin' in.
You haven't fed me anything since, hell, I can't remember when.
You make me wear this stupid collar, and the band is so tight.
But I'll bet my only dollar, you'll stay out again tonight.

I'm just a DOG ON A CHAIN.
You cheat me, you beat me, you're so inhumane.
Just a DOG ON A CHAIN.
You kill me, you thrill me, you call my name.

She keeps me waiting, I go for days without a walk.
Nonetheless anticpating, won't you ever stop, ever stop at all?
Stuck here in the backyard on a scrawny piece of rope.
Not a lot to do tomorrow except tell myself there's a little bit of hope.

I'm just a DOG ON A CHAIN.
You cheat me, you beat me, you're so inhumane.
Just a DOG ON A CHAIN.
You kill me, you thrill me, you call my name.
