Lyrics:
We rode all night across an endless desert
We had no moon to light our way
And though a million stars were slowly turning
We lacked the concious souls to pray
Our horses running like a devil chase us
Those feet they hardly touch the ground
Yes I'm familar with the gray wolves' howling
But I'm certain I never heard this sound
Devil to pay
On Judgement Day
Would Jesus strike me down
If I should pay this cowboy song?
It's all I know
To bring me back into your arms
No distant sun
No shining light
You'll be my Dog Star shining-- tonight

I've been the lowest star
so low on the planet
I've been a sinner all my days
When I was living with my hand on the trigger
I had no sense to change my ways
The priest had asked if I'd embrace the resurrection
To suck the poison from my life
Just like an extessential cowboy villian
His words were balanced on my knife

Devil to pay
On Judgement Day
Would Jesus strike me down
If I should pray this cowboy song?
It's all I know
To bring me back into your arms
No distant sun
No shining light
You'll be my Dog Star shining-- tonight

Tonight and every night
All my distances are far

This cowboy song
It's all I know
To bring me back into your arms
This cowboy song
This cowboy life
Will be your Dog Star shining tonight

Dog Star
Dog Star
Dog Star
Dog Star...
