My Dog and Me Lyrics ©John Hiatt
She marked our trail up the back bone ridge
How many times can one dog pee
Keeps me high as an eagle when I'm on the skids
I guess you gotta come down eventually

Buddy, I coulda gone that extra mile
For an extra bark or an extra smile
'Cause I never felt so free
It was just my dog and me

Then she gives me that look like she'd lay down her life
No doubt she would in a minute, man
She'd face the bullet, oh, she'd face the knife
Just to keep my butt from the fryin' pan

Now she's runnin' up ahead to chase some deer
Comes back to tell me that coast is clear
It's a different world I see
When it's just my dog and me

And there's a rabbit on the run
Man and beast stand, sky and sun
Who's talking to the birds in the trees
Why it's just my dog and me

Now it looks like we've been makin' tracks
From the crack of dawn to the end of the day
So it's nice and easy down the devil's back
She wouldn't know any other way

Now it's over that ridge for one last mile
'Til we're fast asleep by the fire side
Dreamin' these dreams for free
Yeah, it's just my dog and me

I never felt so free
It's just my dog and me.
