Gunning For The Dog - Matchbox

Gunning For The Dog

Matchbox

(Steve Bloomfield, Chiswick/Ace, 1978)

Well, I'm gunning for the dog that ran my baby down
I'm a running for the cat, I'll find him in some town
Well, there ain't no place that he can hide
I wear my pistol by my side
I'm gunning for the dog that ran my baby down

Ridin' to my sugar's house this morning
I had to stop for something in my way
I saw a big crowd gathered 'round
My baby lying on the ground
Somebody saw a black car get away

Well, I'm a gunning for the dog that ran my baby down
I'm a running for the cat, I'll find him in some town
Well, there ain't no place that he can hide
I wear my my pistol by my side
I'm gunning for the dog that ran my baby down
(You better run boy!)

Maybe I won't ever get the killer
But there ain't nobody gonna stop me trying
Maybe I'll end up a wreck
Maybe I'll just break his neck
I ain't gonna stop to listen to his lies

Well, I'm a gunning for the dog that ran my baby down
I'm a running for the cat, I'll find him in some town
Well, there ain't no place that he can hide
So, I wear my pistol by my side
I'm gunning for the dog that ran my baby down

I'm a gunning for the dog that ran my baby down
Yeah, I'm a gunning for the dog that ran my baby down
I'm a gunning for the dog that ran my baby down
I'm a gunning for the dog that ran my baby down
