Dogtown  Reckless Kelly

By Reckless Kelly
Written By Willy Braun & Micky Braun

We [C]laid around [Am]Dogtown a [F]summer a[G]go
[C]Good olā?? ma[Am]n winter wa[F]s fresh out o[G]f snow
When the [C]leaves had left [Am]town, she [F]followed them [G]out
[Dm]Running from rural and [G]cold
I told her Iā??d visit if the roads didnā??t close
The clouds opened up and then down came the snow
And the days turned to weeks and the weeks felt like months
Burning olā?? memories and anthracite coal
Chorus 1:
And I h[F]ung out in [G]Dogtown too [C]long once a[Am]gain
[F]Winter time [G]draws me back [C]in
All the [F]birds have flown [G]south and the [C]goldā??s come an[Am]d gone
And I [F]hung out in [G]Dogtown too [C]long
Sometimes I wonder why I stick around
Even the cathouse has long been torn down
And how many dog years does a man have to kill
To know thereā??s no luck or love left in these hills
Chorus 2:
And I hung out in Dogtown too long
Setting like warm solstice sun
All the goldā??s turned to green and birds have flown home
And I hung out in Dogtown too long
A face I remember from so long ago
Returned with another in love I could see
But Iā??ll show her one day 'cause I know that someday
Iā??m gonna make somethinā?? of me
Chorus 3:
So Iā??m leaving Dogtown at dawn
Seeking my fortune and fame
Cause my heart has grown cold from a love come and gone
As I hung out in Dogtown too long
