Peat the Dog

from by island



a song about Enda's dog


Going up to see the Hardy's
Gone to find a friend
He's been waiting for a home
Somewhere to go

All his brothers are excited, but he sits quietly
Scarred of strangers, he don't know, it's time to go
and he ain't coming back, never coming back

Peat and I, now we'd go walking, I take him across the fields
Lord it feels so long, but eight short years have been and gone
and he's still by my side, he's still by my side

Peat is unlike any other
Peat the dog's my friend
Peat the dog is by the table, trying for a scrap of bread
