Nazareth - Woke Up This Morning Lyrics

Woke up this morning, my dog was dead,
Someone disliked him and shot him through the head.

Woke up this morning, my cat had died,
I know I'll miss her, sat down and cried.

Came home this evening, my hog was gone,
People here don't like me, I think I'll soon move on.

Now somethings happened, that would make a saint frown,
I turned my back and my house burned down.

  98. Chris Belanger

    One band from over yonder, the way hard rock music business was mean to be handled. we don't need no stinking agent's or manager, the amount of accessible music born out of a hand full of hard working guy's clearly tells me that if I made rock music as well as Nazareth does I would be worthy of a middle name also, hard working rock and no one surely works harder than me in this business!
