Dead Dog Memories

This song is by The Bottle Rockets and appears on the album Bottle Rockets (1993) and on the album Brand New Year (1999).

I can remember like it was yesterday
When my puppy got run over by a Chevrolet
Daddy said 'he's gone son you're gonna have to say goodbye'
I never could do it no matter what he said
I refused to believe my dog was dead
Now I can see this happenin' all over again

It ain't lookin' like you and me are ever going to be we
I ain't nothin' you'll ever want, it's plain to see
But me oh my, I wonder why I
Can't ever let a dead dog lie

I ought to give up, but I keep tryin'
Keep lookin' for a lovelight that just won't shine
I refuse to see that you can't ever be mine

I guess it's true, the things I do
Cause the pain that I go through
But dead dog memories don't fade away with time

It ain't lookin' like you and me are ever going to be we
I ain't nothin' you'll ever want, it's plain to see
But me oh my, I wonder why I Can't ever let a dead dog lie
I can't ever let a dead dog lie
