Read ’em and weep…


Lost Dog Inn (Saga of the)
In a southern town – in a house that’s broken down
There’s a girl who lives there on her own
She lost her man, to a gamblin’ clan
At a mountain den – called the “Lost Dog Inn”

He spent his days, learnin’ dirty plays
He wanted gold and riches for his own
He spent his time, where the gamblers hide
At a mountain den – called the “Lost Dog Inn”

Night after night – until the break of light
He’d chance his life for the gold he hoped to own
Far below, was the girl who loved him so…
And she called to her man at the “Lost Dog Inn”

(Chorus)
Come down, come down, you could hear her call
Come back to the one who loves you most of all
There’s gold in my heart and diamonds in my bed
But all that he won was a bullet of lead!

The time finally came – when he needed one last game
With a stranger who said his home was Birmingham
Well, the deck was stacked, and her man turned his back
That was all for him at the “Lost Dog Inn”

It was years ago – but the story, it’s still told
About the girl who lived there on her own
Late at night – it’s the wind, or are they right
Can you hear the call of the “Lost Dog Inn”?

(Chorus)
Come down, come down, you could hear her call
Come back to the one who loves you most of all
There’s gold in my heart and diamonds in my bed
But all that he won was a bullet of lead!
