Ghost of a Dog Lyrics

by Edie Brickell & The New Bohemians

How can that dog be barkin' in the backyard?
We ran over him years ago
How can that dog be runnin' by the backfence?
We ran over him years ago
Ghost of a dog, barkin' in the backyard

How can that dog be scratchin' at the back door?
We ran over him years ago
How can that dog be lying under that shady tree
Where we buried him years ago?
Ghost of a dog, flyin' through the backyard
