Inspired By Observing Our Latest Orphan,

And By One of My Favorite Old Songs:

Ventura Highway by America


Lyin there, in the tall grass

So all alone, out on the road

He’d been in agony, a long time

With a broken leg, nowhere to go

Two months now, since I found him

Out there in his hell, on that highway

Abandoned, then struck down by a car

But now, he’s growin stronger, every day


He’s finally free of his constricting old neck cone

His splint and bandage, have now been removed

He is finally gaining some much needed weight

And today, he is in a newly found, joyous mood


He now very happily waits for me to let him outside

Where he now loves, stretchin out in our backyard

Where he wags his tail, while takin in the fresh air

Happy that his days and nights, are no longer hard


Highway, out in Autumn’s warm sunshine

Where his days, are now, so much brighter

His nights are now no longer, filled with pain

And now, he wants to stay right here, forever


'Cause the sun is shinin down on him

And joy surrounds his new life here

No more cryin out in despair

Happiness in the air, in the air



©Autumn 2012 - An Old Dog Lovin, Guitar Strummin Mr. Ed
