The Jayhawks – Dogtown Days Lyrics

Dogtown Days By The Jayhawks

Seventy-two miles and three states to you
I can’t undo the damage without you
I had so much left to give
I guess I just couldn’t find the time

I must confess I didn’t love you
Quite as much as I ignored you
And tore you town

Goodnight, my dogtown days
Every backseat pledge I made, is dead
Your eyes reflected blue
Everything I knew about you, is dead
Just south of heaven

When it began, the thing felt right
I was only kidding if I destroyed your life

I must confess you were the best
I lost my cool, I needed you

Goodnight, my dogtown days
Every backseat pledge I made, is dead
Your eyes reflected blue
Everything I knew about you, is dead
Just south of heaven
Just west of Evansville
Indiana
