The Lyrics

I have always considered "Blackbird" to be one of the most beautiful songs ever released. I've done a few comic turns on this tune, but always wanted to do one in the spirit of the song, And then it hit me -- I have a proper subject right under my nose; if it had been a German Shepherd, it would have bitten me. I have a granddog (daughter's dog) who was broken by neglect and left to die on the side of road after being struck by a car. His injuries were so severe that his right forelimb needed to be amputated, because it was causing him so much pain. There's actually a word now for such a three legged creature -- "Tripawed"
Tripawed moaning in the dead of night
Cast from broken home and left to die
All your life
You were only needing for the humans to be kind

Tripawed hurting from his mangled thigh
Lose that busted limb and feel relief
All your life
You have just been waiting for a moment without grief

Tripawed fly ... Tripawed fly
Far from the blight of that cold dark night
Tripawed stride .. Tripawed stride
Into a life where's there's love, not strife

Tripawed fetching in the warm spring light
Take those three strong limbs and learn to glide
All your life
You have just been waiting for an owner to be kind
You have just been waiting for an owner to be kind
You have just been waiting for my daughter ...
To be kind

I think I may start bawling now ... and not just because my back is killing me

I gave you 5's for heartrending rather than funny. Poor dog - I hope he has a good home now.

He's doing great as far as I can tell. Daughter brought him over on Mothers Day. he weighs in at 85 lbs; normal weight for a German Shepherd despite his disability. And he pulls on the leash like a Clydesdale pulling a beer wagon -- strongest tug I've ever felt from a dog …. Reason being, when it walks it lifts its upper body straight up and pushes off with both legs. The effect is like a football lineman coming out of a three point stance time and time again

Instagram, BTW, has tens of thousands of pictures of these dogs (and cats) under the hashtag #tripawd
