He sits lonely beside a road
and looks both up and down,
waiting for His Masters return
who is no where to be found.

He dont know what happened
nor what He did so wrong,
that They would leave Him here
abandoned,hungry and alone.

He knows He was a good Dog
and for His Home He yearns,
and faithfully He sits there
awaiting His Masters return.

You can see them every where
as You drive along your way,
these abandoned lonely Dogs
sitting beside some highway.

And it is not at all thier fault
and You know My words are true,
for the only ones to blame
are Humans like Me and You.
Bob Mitchum
