​Dog Door

This song is by Tom Waits and appears on the compilation box set Orphans: Brawlers, Bawlers & Bastards (2007).

(Waits/Brennan/Linkous)
Well she's as mean as a needle
Don't get too close to the heater
She's like a mean shop keeper, who got an extra gun
She about 6'4" and she's a wreckin ball
Now go ahead and kiss her
She brought the bad weather with her
She got you coming through the dog door
She got you coming through the dog door.

Now pigs get fat, hogs get slaughtered
You ought to walk away
Well you can't but you ought to, climb the rickety stairs
She got the long black hair, but don't sit there
Electricity chair
She got you coming through the dog door
She got you coming through the dog door.

Pitchfork
Crowbar
Clawhammer
Hot tar

She's got ruin in her name, but she can make it rain
She's a small town jail, and you're starving in the belly of a whale
She got you coming through the dog door
She got you coming through the dog door.

Pitchfork (pitchfork)
Crowbar (crowbar)
Clawhammer (clawhammer)
Hot tar (hot tar)
Hot tar (hot tar)

She got me through her middle name
But she can make it rain
She got a small-town chill
And she's starving in the belly wheel

She got me coming through the dog door
She got me coming through the dog door

Pitchfork (pitchfork)
Crowbar (crowbar)
Clawhammer (clawhammer)
Hot tar (hot tar)
