When Your Feet Hurt

When your feet hurt
the road feels harder
When your feet hurt
you stay in your yard
When your feet hurt
Everything feels worse
Yes, everything feels worse when your feet hurt

When your dogs bark
every step is painful
When your dogs bark
please don’t be disdainful
When your dogs bark
Everything feels worse
Yes, everything feels worse when your feet hurt

When your toes smart
steps are all too high
When your toes smart
snails pass you by
When your toes smart
Everything feels worse
Yes, everything feels worse when your feet hurt
I’m sitting here because I got sore paws
Well it’s really hard to move with aching hooves
Yes, everything feels worse
Everything feels worse when your feet hurt
(Don’t be a heel, just rub my tootsies…)

(yep, I’m thinking this one might end up as a song too…probably blues. lol)

Old, New, Borrowed, Blue

To learn something new,
something  breathtakingly new,
unlearn something old.

When you borrow blues,
they fade from deep indigo
to pale robin’s egg.

Backhoe Blues

I got the following the backhoe at 15 miles an hour blues
I got the following that backhoe at 15 miles an hour blues
Even trucks pullin’ trailers pass us by like yesterday’s news.

I drank a pot of tea this mornin’and it’s causing me some pain
I drank a whole pot of tea this mornin’ and it’s causing me some pain.
If I don’t find a bathroom I may never uncross these eyes again.

Oh, my red lights are flashin’, flashin’ a warning sign
My red lights are flashin’, yes, I’m your warning sign.
Ten miles left to go and I’m bored right outta my mind.

I got the following the backhoe at 15 miles an hour blues
I got the following that backhoe at 15 miles an hour blues
Tappin’ breaks for hours now my foot’s asleep in my shoe.

Well when we get home, I’m gonna park right in the yard
Oh when we get home, gonna park this red truck in the yard
And if you ever ask me to do this again, gonna have think real hard. 

I got the following the backhoe at 15 miles an hour blues……
