  • The Lost Dogs "Mutt" CD
    Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    For this record, the band decided to take songs - 3 songs each - from each of their regular bands and redo them Lost Dogs style.

    Roe brought The 77s songs "It's So Sad" (from 1983's Ping Pong Over the Abyss) and "The Lust, The Flesh, The Eyes and the Pride of Life" (from 1984's The 77s) and his own solo track "Sunshine Down" (from 2001's Say Your Prayers).

    Daugherty brought along the Choir songs, "Like A Cloud" (from 1994's Speckled Bird) and "To Cover You" (from 1987's Wide Eyed Wonder), plus the modern hymn "Beautiful Scandalous Night."

    Taylor brought the Daniel Amos songs "If You Want To" (from 1991's Kalhoun), "Grace Is The Smell of Rain" (from 1993's MotorCycle) and, the first song D.A. ever recorded, "'Aint Gonna Fight It."

    The trio then added one new track to the end of the record, "I'm Setting You Free (But I'm Not Letting You Go)."

    Instead of simply recreating the original performances, each song was given a facelift with different singers taking over the lead vocals. For example, Roe & Daugherty would tackle the D.A songs, and Taylor and Daugherty would sing the 77s tracks. The song that perhaps received the most noticeable rearrangement was the 77's "It's So Sad," which was turned into a rockabilly tune.

Track Name: If You Want To
(Terry Taylor)

I'll pick you up
I'll set you down
We'll fall in love
If you want to

I'll stay right here
Or I'll go away
We'll live forever
If you want to

I looked through a window and I saw into heaven
Sweet mother and child in a stain-glass reflection
Out over the gate we saw angels in the garden
We're gazing from a distance at our own resurrection

I'll block the door
Or I'll step aside
We'll change the world
If you want to

I looked through a window and I saw into heaven
Sweet mother and child in a stain-glass reflection
Out over the gate we saw angels in the garden
We're gazing from a distance at our own resurrection

I'll block the door
Or I'll step aside
We'll change the world
If you want to


I'll turn the key
I'll start the car
We'll drive into the sunset
If you want to

If you want to
If you want to
If you want to...
Track Name: The Lust, The Flesh, The Eyes & The Pride Of Life
(Michael Roe)

Well, I feel
Like I have to feel
Something good all of the time
With most of life I cannot deal
But a good feeling I can feel
Even though it may not be real
And if a person, place or thing can deliver
I will quiver with delight
But will it last me for all my life
Or just one more lonely, lonely night

The lust, the flesh
The eyes
And the pride of life
Drain the life
Right out of me

Well, I see something and I want it
Bam! Right now!
No questions asked
Don't worry how much it costs me now or later
I want it and I want it fast
I'll go to any length
Sacrifice all that I already have
And all that I might get
Just to get
Something more that I don't need
And Lord, please don't ask me what for

The lust, the flesh
The eyes
And the pride of life
Drain the life
Right out of me

And I love it when folks
Look right at me
And what I'm doing
Or I have done
And lay it on about
How groovy I am
And that I am looking grand
And every single word
Makes me think I'll live forever
Never knowing that they probably
Won't remember what they said tomorrow
Tomorrow I could be dead

The lust, the flesh
The eyes
And the pride of life
Drain the life
Right out of me
Track Name: Like A Cloud
(Steve Hindalong/Derri Daugherty)

I want to float you like a cloud
I want to drink you like a flower drinks rain
I want to lift you up to heaven

Now I can't get you
off the ground
when you wear such heavy shoes
But I'll keep trying
because I really want to float you

Like a cloud
I want to drink you like a flower drinks rain
I want to lift you up to heavenly places
and beg you to remain

I never mean to make you cry
I don't want to bring you down
When I'm descending hold on tight
I always turn around

I want to float you Like a cloud
I want to swallow you like a flower drinks rain
I want to lift you up to heavenly places
and beg you to remain

I want to float you Like a cloud
I want to lift you up to heaven
I want to float you Like a cloud
I want to lift you up to heaven
I want to float you Like a cloud
I want to lift you up to heaven
Track Name: Grace Is The Smell Of Rain
(Words by Terry Taylor / Music by Terry Taylor and Jerry Chamberlain)

The cauliflower ears
The crocodile tears
The hearts too hard for breaking
We hobble down to your undertow

The lunatic fringe by the Quackery
Miracle Sludge from the factory
Come to trouble the water
Angels and otters,
Psychosomatics cleaning their attics-they learn

Grace is the smell of rain

Pride that stiffs the neck
healed by graceless genuflect
Heaven and earth embracing
Like lovers under the mistletoe

These low of lows, dregs of the earth,
malcontents when the last are first
come to trouble the water
Mothers and fathers
Immersing their babies, they pluck them from hades
where

Grace is the smell of rain

There's old sleep in our eyes
and deep thorns in our sides
but old dogs learn new tricks
when the rain is falling
By the bottomless lagoon
a drunkard's dancing in the moonlight

The cauliflower ears
(the dregs of earth making their way)
The crocodile tears
(a drunkard's dance under the moonlight)
The hearts too hard for breaking
We hobble down to your undertow

The lunatic fringe by the Quackery
Miracle Sludge from the factory
Come to trouble the water
Angels and otters,
Psychosomatics cleaning their attics-they learn

Grace is the smell of rain
Grace is the smell of rain
Grace is the smell of rain
Track Name: Sunshine Down
(Michael Roe)

I marvel as I sip upon my sweet tea
I’m pop-eyed at the sweetness of my sweet peas
The blooming of my trees
Why does the sun shine down on me?

I’m grateful for the greatness of your soft hands
And thankful for the cleanness of my pressed pants
You part the clouds still I don’t see
Why does the sun shine down on me?

Sometimes I hear, sometimes I listen
Most of the time I’m stubborn and indifferent
Often I’m sad, knowing what I’m missing
And all the time I’m wishing things were all so different

Thinking of asking that the end don’t come too soon ‘cuz
I’ve got a friend or two
Could use a friend like You ‘cuz
It’s getting cold and now I see
Just why the sun shines down on me

Upon my friends, down on my daughter
A beam of light to walk upon Your water
Shine on and bless my mother and my father
Praying for me when I could not be bothered

If my house goes up in flames give it a dowse, please
But never let the flame You lit inside my heart cease
I cannot live without the heat
From Your sun shining down on me
Track Name: To Cover You
(Steve Hindalong/Derri Daugherty)

Walk down a dark street naked on a winter night
Run from the law like the sunday I saw the light
To defend your spirit I would go to war
I would chase the devil to Jehovah's door

I would do anything
To cover you body and soul, girl
I would give everything in the world
To cover you (cover you)
To cover you

Set my guitar on fire with a long stemmed match
Dance while it burns and laugh when it turns to ash
I would torch everything to keep you warm
I would do anything to keep you from harm, honey

I would do anything
To cover you body and soul, girl
I would give everything in the world
To cover you

I would do anything
To wrap you up tight on a cold night
I would give everything that I have
To cover you (cover you)
To cover you

I would do anything
To cover you body and soul, girl
I would give everything in the world
To cover you (cover you)
To cover you (cover you)
To cover you
Track Name: It's So Sad
(Mark Proctor)

Morning after morning
Day after day
Life goes on
In the same old way
No variation
Or so it seems
Sometimes we realize
Our nightmares
Not our dreams

Oh, It's sad
Woah-oh, It's so sad
When someone says they
Found The Answer
You tell him you're
Not really doing
That bad

They're trying to buy heaven
Right here on earth
The cost will always end up
More than it's worth
You ponder living
You wonder why
No matter what you do
You're still going to die

Chorus

Guilt is in your conscience
Pain in your soul
Feel's like you're falling
Down a deep dark hole
You drink that whiskey
You smoke that pot
Twenty more years
What in hell have you got

Chorus

When Jesus says that He's the answer
You tell him you're
Not really doing
That bad
Track Name: Ain't Gonna Fight It
(1976 Terry Taylor)

No, I ain't gonna fight it, His Spirit is taking me there
I cannot doubt, that love is in the air
Surrender my will to the One who's calling my name
They tell me once your heart's there
You'll never be the same

I hear music and laughter just outside of my door
This time it's just a little louder than before
I hear Jesus making promises that I must now claim
They tell me once your heart's there
You'll never be the same

Oh, peace has got it's grip on me, it's drawing me on
I know that in a moment I'll be gone
I'm feeling warm within, it's like being born again
Take me Lord
Take me Lord

With my mind on hope, my heart, my soul on faith
I take the step that time cannot erase
Stepping into the sunshine out of the falling rain
They tell me once your heart's there
You'll never be the same

Oh, peace has got it's grip on me, it's drawing me on
I know that in a moment I'll be gone
I'm feeling warm within, it's like being born again
Take me Lord
Take me Lord

Surrender my soul to the One who's calling my name
They tell me once your heart's there
You'll never be the same
I've found that once your heart's there
You'll never be the same
Track Name: Beautiful Scandalous Night
(Steve Hindalong/Derri Daugherty)

Go on up to the mountain of mercy
To the crimson perpetual tide
Kneel down on the shore
Be thirsty no more
Go under and be purified

Follow Christ to the holy mountain
Sinner sorry and wrecked by the fall
Cleanse your heart and your soul
In the fountain that flowed
For you and for me and for all

(Chorus)
At the wonderful, tragic, mysterious tree
On that beautiful scandalous night you and me
Were atoned by His blood and forever washed white
On that beautiful, scandalous night

On the hillside, you were delivered
At the foot of the cross justified
And Your spirit restored
By the river that poured
From our blessed Savior's side

(Chorus)

Go on up to the mountain of mercy
To the crimson perpetual tide
Kneel down on the shore
Be thirsty no more
Go under and be purified

(Chorus)
Track Name: I'm Setting You Free (But I'm Not Letting You Go)
(Terry Taylor / Steve Hindalong)

chorus:
I'm setting you free
but I'm not letting you
I'm watching you fly away
but keeping you close
I can't help but cry a little
Heaven knows
I'm setting you free
but I'm not letting you

Though Mom says I spoil you
Please come home real often
often and soon
Would you think of us as foolish
if we do some pretending
by leaving your light on
here in your room?

(chorus)

Drive slow on the freeways
call first thing when you get there
You know me, how I worry
I'll be up most the night
and if you need anything, baby
you know we'll both be here
In the meantime we're praying
that your future is bright

(chorus)

Wheres that princess in a party dress?
now shes a young lady with dreams
fly away butterfly
on the wind, taking wings
The first time that I held you child
you forever changed my soul
and I'm holding you now
because I want you to know

(chorus)
