Thirsty Dog

I know you’ve hear it all before
But I’m sorry for this three year war
For the setting up of camps
and wire and trenches
I’m sorry for the other night
I know sorry it don’t make it right
I’m sorry for things I can’t even mention

I’m sorry sorry sorry, sorry
I’m sitting feeling sorry in the Thirsty Dog
I’m sorry sorry sorry, sorry
I’m feeling very sorry in the Thirsty Dog

(Organ solo)

You keep nailing me back into my box
I’m sorry I keep popping back up
With my crazy mouth
and jangling jester’s cap
I’m sorry I ever wrote that book
I’m sorry about the way I look
But there ain’t a lot that
I can do about that

(Guitar solo)

I’m sorry about the hospital
Some things are unforgivable
Some things simply cannot be forgiven
I was not equipped to know how to care
And on the occasions I came up for air
I saw my life and wondered
what the hell I had been living

(Organ solo)

I’m sorry about all your friends
I hope they’ll speak to me again
I said before I’d pay for all the damage
I’m sorry it’s just rotten luck
I’m sorry I’ve forgotten how to fuck
It’s just that I think my heart
and soul are kind of famished

(Organ and Guitar solo)

Forgive me, darling but don’t worry
Love is always having to
say you’re sorry
And I am, from my head
down to my shoes
I’m sorry that I’m always pissed
I’m sorry that I exist
And when I look into your eyes
I can see you’re sorry too

I’m sorry sorry sorry, sorry
I’m sitting feeling sorry in the Thirsty Dog
I’m sorry sorry sorry, sorry
I’m feeling very sorry in the Thirsty Dog
