The Last Shepherd

This song is by Greg Brown and Dick Pinney and appears on the Live album Hacklebarney (1974).

Men worked all day to sell me death
And chain me to their time
So I took a sheep and began to climb
To my own heart and breath

This must be the last good place
The smoke can't rise so high
I might be content to die
Wearing a weathered face

The song of the hills will break someday
For the laugh of a businessman
And the mad dogs will catch me if they can
When my sheep are gone away
