old love

Posted: 04/01/2012 in house of love, house of weather, house of women

got an old dog,

not much bother her none…

but my old dog

know the storm come she better run.

run, baby

find a safe place when the lightning flash…

thunder roll

run on in, mama waitin’.

got an old love,

not much bother her none…

but my old love

know the way to my door

run, baby

find a safe place when the lightning flash…

thunder roll

run on in, mama waitin.

    coal could get almost anyone to come on in her kitchen, I think, when she sings like this.

    Ohhhh. This feels like a song. LOVE.

  5. Love the voice you use for this, so theatrical, feels like a really great scene and amazingly in the few words presented with the repeating I can hear the thunder, rain falling, clickity-click of dog’s nails on wooden porch…see your character holding the door open for her. Gorgeous!

    A lullaby of comfort and security here, something dogs so earnestly earn with their devotion. Lovers too …

  7. This should be set to music…an ode to love and devotion

  8. beautiful, such a unique voice…my dog is terrified of thunder!
