      About "Cold Dog Soup"

      Lyrics for Guy Clark - "Cold Dog Soup"

      William Butler Yeats in jeans
      Got up to play guitar and sing
      In some join in Mission Beach last night
      At the door sat Tom Waits
      In a pork pie hat and silver skates
      Jugglin' three collection plates Jesus Christ

      Townes Van Zandt standin' at the bar
      Skinnin' a Hollywood movie star
      Can't remember where he parked his car
      Or to whom he lost the keys
      Full of angst and hillbilly haiku
      What's a poor Ft. Worth boy to do
      Go on rhyme somethin' for em' man
      Show him how you really feel

      [Chorus:]
      Ain't no money in poetry
      That's what sets the poet free
      I've had all the freedom I can stand
      Cold dog soup and rainbow pie
      Is all it takes to get me by
      Fool my belly till the day I die
      Cold dog soup and rainbow pie

      Ginsberg and Kerouac
      Shootin' dice and playin' Ramblin' Jack's guitar
      With the cowboy paintin' pickguard on it
      And they sat in the back and drank for free
      And rhymed orange with Rosalie
      Now there's a pride of lions to draw to
