Hey Packy

This song is by Loudon Wainwright III and appears on the album T Shirt (1976).

I been shufflin' a lonesome old trail
I'm gonna send a letter to my dog in the mail
Hey Packy, I'm comin' back again

My legs are tired and my feet are draggin'
But I ain't gonna stop 'til I see his tail waggin'
Hey Packy, I'm comin' back again

I heard that proverb tell, a dog is a man's best friend
There's no more detainin', I'm walkin', it's rainin'
Packy's waitin' at the rainbow, he's waiting at the rainbow's end

The clouds drift, the world is so wide
A fellow feels lucky with a dog by his side
Hey Packy, I'm comin' back again

A two-bit mutt, he ain't worth a dollar
But you're sure gonna dig it when he comes when you holler
Hey Packy, I'm comin' back again

Here I come...

You know that
I heard that proverb tell, a dog is a man's best friend
No more detainin', now I'm walkin', it's rainin'
Packy's waitin' at the rainbow, he's waitin' at the rainbow's end

Hey Packy, I'm comin' home
I'm gonna scratch your little head, I'm gonna give you a little bone
Hey Packy, I'm comin' back again

Some folks look hard searching for somethin'
They could see so plain in that dog's tail thumpin'
Hey Packy, I'm comin' back again

Some folks are wonderin' why they was born
They ain't never been swimmin' with a dog in the morning
Hey Packy, I'm comin' back again
