lyrics

Sheena’s Dog
purpose/zollo

Must be midnight in the Bowery now
But here it’s only nine
I’ve been watching as the sun goes down
On Santa Monica & Vine
I’ve still got her paperbacks and comic books from 1995
And I would drive my car to Sheena’s house
If I still knew how to drive, And if Sheena was still alive

CHORUS:
The moon’s behind a billboard now
And the streets are full of fog
And time is just a bone we saved
A bone we saved for Sheena’s dog

Sheena had a Cavalier
It was the best car she could afford
She kept it in her daddy’s barn
Where the grapes of wrath were stored
Seven sheepdogs in the chicken coop spilled into fields of corn
Seven weeks went by the sun came up
And Sheena’s dog was born, Sheena’s dog was born

CHORUS:
The moon’s behind a billboard now
And the streets are full of fog
And time is just a bone we saved
A bone we saved for Sheena’s dog

bridge:
Sheena’s dog was big and gentle
With ears that fell from side to side
I think I’ve grown more sentimental
Ever since that old dog died

She was making movies then
Once I was her movie star
I was playing Woody Guthrie songs
On Geronimo’s guitar
And we would harmonize at barbecues in her hillside backyard
And we’d walk all the way from Echo Park
Down Sunset Boulevard, with Sheena’s dog
Sheena’s dog Sheena’s dog
