From the recording The Highway That Runs Through The Graveyard and Other Weird Tales
Inspired by John Prine, one of my favorite songwriters, and Celestial Seasonings' Morning Thunder Tea, and life. Harmonies by my son, Matt. I play piano and guitar. The tag line, "Money can buy a dog but only love can make him wag his tail", first appeared in print in a 1920's Boston Globe article. Origin unknown.
