Ol' Cur Dog

He’s an old cur dog with his nose to the ground

Out looking for something that he ain’t found

She’s yelling his name, but he don’t hear a sound

Just an old cur dog with his nose to the ground

 

It’s nothing she hasn’t seen before

She gives him space, lets him explore

‘Cuz it won’t be long, he’ll be pawing at the back door

It’s nothing she hasn’t seen before

 

That’s what you get, when you love a cur

I know it’s hard, it’s hard on her

She’ll keep chasing him, the rest of his days

Because she loves him, despite his cur dog ways

 

He was a mangy young pup when she took him in 

He was hungry and lost and looking for a friend

He was running when she found him, he’ll be running again

Just a mangy young pup when she took him in

 

He’s older now and a little past his prime

Still never met a fence he couldn’t climb

He keeps on proving it, time after time

Though he’s older now and a little past his prime

 

You can’t fence in an old cur

I know it’s hard, it’s hard on her

She’ll keep chasing him, the rest of his days

Because she loves him, despite his cur dog ways

 

You can’t change an old cur

The boots in the yard, they belong to her

She’ll keep scolding him, the rest of his days

Because she loves him, despite his cur dog ways

 

He’s an old cur dog with his nose to the ground

Out looking for something that he ain’t found

She’s yelling his name, but he don’t hear a sound

Just an old cur dog with his nose to the ground
