​Slow Dog

This song is by Belly and appears on the album Star (1993).

Leave him by the road
'Cause the dog won't run it
Picking through spit out leaves the dog won't even touch
Meant to shoot that dog long ago
Just can't leave that dog alone

Maria, carry a rifle
Maria, carry a dog on her back
That dog is hit again
That slow dog is hit again
With his see-through skin
The kind of skin you can see through
He's shot again
He's shot again

Heal me by a river
Man retires his wife, says:
But she was so sad and sick
His heart breaks in the mud

Thought I'd leave this world by twenty-one
Couldn't leave that dog alone

Maria, carry a rifle
Maria, carry a dog on her back
That dog is hit again
That slow dog is hit again
With his see-through skin
He's shot again
He's shot again
He's shot again
