lyrics

I love my dog but we must be parted
It’s ten o’clock, they are taking her away
It’s a quiet Saturday and the breeze is shifting
The farmer’s lifting some bales of hay

A ewe is dead and two lambs are orphaned
Her neck was gashed; I am sitting in the shed
And I know that later Dad will say “Were you sobbing?”
But even he’s not too old for that

My mother says life is temporary
Then sews a line, the Cortina’s on the lawn
And the yelping’s getting small with the revving engine
She doesn’t know what’s going on

Now I might see her on footpaths in Galway
Near Cruachán Park or on Threadneedle Road
But will I then be too old, will she recognise me?
Or look afraid, then be whistled home?

I love my dog but we must be parted
It’s ten o’clock, they are taking her away
It’s a quiet Saturday and the breeze is shifting
The farmer’s lifting some bales of hay
