There’s an old dog chained up tight
On the porch all day and it don’t seem right
Thinking about the days when he used to run
All over town have a little fun
Howlin’ at the moon, barkin’ at the breeze
Growlin’ at the grass and scratchin’ at the fleas
Sometimes I think he’s a lot like me
Trying to find a way to break free
 
When I met her she was gone on me
Now she’s at home in her own company
She don’t want me and that’s for sure
But she gets uptight when I walk out the door
We used to have such a hot romance
But the fires went out as the years advanced
Try to stoke it up again
She just turns her back like she’s in pain
 
And there’s an old dog chained up tight
On the porch all day and it don’t seem right
Thinking about the days when he used to run
All over town have a little fun
Howlin’ at the moon, barkin’ at the breeze
Growlin’ at the grass and scratchin’ at the fleas
Sometimes I think he’s a lot like me
Trying to find a way to break free
 
Late one night he slipped the chain
And he headed back out on the town again
Tried to play it slow and cool
But they laughed at him down where the young dogs rule
And with his tail hung limp between his legs
He crept back home to his own bed
Now she don’t have to check no chain
He just puts it on himself
 
And there’s an old dog chained up tight
On the porch all day and it don’t seem right
