Davy's got a lesson, learned it the hard way
He's now a broken hearted man, and he hasn't got a word to say
He roll like a fence post, he stand like a tire
He's been thrown to the lions, says he wanna join the rodeo.
And it's a dogone shame that he's a dog on a chain
He says he'll find a way back, maybe buy a cadillac
He wants a place to call his own, and his finger nails are turning black
He fly like a night stand, run like an old clock
He bought himself a six string, if you listen you can hear him rock.
And it's a doggone shame that he's a dog on a chain
Some say he'll make it thru while others claim he's just a fool
And it's a doggone shame that he's a dog on a chain.
