Dog In The Backyard

Down and out in your old home town
Only the floor has your back
You never learn - every return
Is more dreadful than the last

Old houses forsaken, overtaken
Repossessed by the weeds
Circles reversing, family cursing
Bring it on home to me

Now the spirits hit your bloodstream
An old song goes right to your head
Stomach aches from sour grapes
Between the living and the dead

Blinking bottles on the wall
Beckon and beguile
If I don't heed the call
I'll just have to crawl to you, baby
Come on and linger awhile
Linger awhile ... I really want to

There's a dog in the backyard
Digging a hole to China
Out of boredom, I suppose
Don't give a good hot damn
About a dogforsaken bone

There's a weird, yellow light in the morning
Long shadows of oblivion
And the calendar on the wall says,
"My God, what have I done?"
What have I done?

There's a dog in the backyard
Digging a hole to China
Oh honey, where'd you go?

Scott Hrabko Kansas City, Missouri

Kansas City's Scott Hrabko is an independent singer/songwriter who has followed his own restless, shape-shifting muse since the town's late-80s indie rock scene.

“Hrabko’s rootsy songs are filled with trap doors, hidden nooks, and secret passageways. They’re like those dreams within comfortably familiar houses that suddenly have brand new rooms.”
Mike Warren - No Depression
