Mason Jennings Sassafrass Lyrics

Last updated: 06/24/2012 11:00:00 AM

Coulda had a dog in the name of Sassafrass
Black dog, when it came, it came so fast
Came into my room like a locomotive
Up into my bed like, "this is a hold up"
Out across the valley she chased a bone
Left me chewin' on a microphone
Askin' things that I always will
She left me cryin' on top of the hill, cryin'...

What am I to do now that baby's gone
'Cept to howl at the moon like a wounded dog
Singin whoa-oa-oa-oa, whoa-oa-oa-oa
Sad song now that baby's gone
I been cryin' on the hill till the break of dawn
Singin whoa-oa-oa-oa, whoa-oa-oa-oa

Sassafrass, sassafrass, gone so fast
Sassafrass, sassafrass, gone so fast
Sassafrass, sassafrass, gone so fast
Sassafrass, gone so sassafrass

Ashes to ashes and dust to dust
If you don't use my love, it'll turn to rust
Turn a magic wand into an allen wrench
You have a home run hitter sittin' on the bench
One day your time's gonna be spent
Find you're lookin' back at the things you did
"Yeah what a fine man, why'd I let him pass?"
But at that time baby you can kiss my sassafrass

What do now that baby's gone
Howl at the moon like a wounded dog
Singin' whoa-oa-oa-oa, whoa-oa-oa-oa
Sad song now that baby's gone
You been cryin' on the hill till the break of dawn
Singin' whoa-oa-oa-oa, whoa-oa-oa-oa

Sassafrass, sassafrass, gone so fast
Sassafrass, sassafrass, gone so fast
Sassafrass, sassafrass, gone so fast
Sassafrass, gone so sassafrass
