Coming Down Off the Money Bag/Song of the Dog

This song is by The Guess Who and appears on the album Share the Land (1970).

Been playin' in a band for 99 years
Been doin' these tunes just to please your ears
Follow the changes, there are but three
They can change, you know, any way you please
Now take this tune I'm pickin' away
The way I pick is what I say
But ev'ry once in a while it becomes a drag
So I come down off the money bag

Gonna leave the city
Leave my woman troubles far behind
Gonna leave the city
Leave my woman troubles far behind
One time she say she love me
Next day treat me so unkind...

I hop down to the station
Get me a leavin' ticket just one way
I hop down to the station
Get me a leavin' ticket just one way
One time she say she love me
Next day say, "little boy, go away."

Been playin' in a band for 99 years
Been doin' these tunes just to please your ears
Follow the changes, there are but three
They can change, you know, any way you please
Now take this tune I'm pickin' away
The way I pick is what I say
But ev'ry once in a while it becomes a drag
So I come down off the money bag
