Dog comes howling up behind you
Sinks his teeth in your leg
Tells you how now things are going to be a little different
And he takes you down a peg

You make him ashamed for you
He buys you a new dress
Because you make him ashamed for you
And he'd like you to look your best

So you change, oh, oh, oh
So you change, oh, oh, oh
So you change, oh, oh, oh
And the dog bites down a little harder

Somewhere out in the wild, wild west
That silly little thing that we tossed, tossed, tossed
Somehow now we don't talk about nothing else
But that silly little thing that we lost, that we lost, that we lost

And now there's no name for you
Come to find out none of that shit was even true
But now there's no name for you
I understand that you lost that too

When you change, oh, oh, oh
When you change, oh, oh, oh
When you change, oh, oh, oh
And the dog bites down a little harder

Change
Change
Change
Change

Man said, "Woman, I'm a little tired of you"
And she said, "Don't leave me, baby, I'll do anything you want me to"
And he said, "Can't you do something about the mess around this place?"
She said, "Anything, baby, anything, I can cover my face"

You make him ashamed for you
He buys you a new dress
'Cause you make him ashamed for you
In your nakedness

So you change, oh, oh, oh
And you change, oh, oh, oh
And you change, oh, oh, oh
And you change, you change, you change, change

Change
Change
Change
Change
Change

And the dog bites down a little harder

Thanks for the ear candy, Bill and, thank you for ignoring those who would pretend to know what's best and clamor to isolate the rest of us from treasures like Patty Griffin. In Bill we trust...

No see... uhm. Why would your ex buy you a car? Bad planner? If he bought the car before he was an ex, and you left in the car, or just with it... that's a different story. Not one that's self-evident, but different.

A favorite stanza for all our American women out there in the Tramp administration.  Oh yes I went there.  Ummmm.....not that I'm agreeable to the Tramp...only to say Patty....you're on point with the women's point of view on this one ain't ya.?  {#Beat}

So it goes in the land where even a Tramp can sit on the Throne. I guess all the misanthropes out there can take heart? {#Devil_pimp}

"Dress" is a slightly different story.  It's about a failed effort to attract using what the woman believes is the main attraction to a man, her new dress. Patty's story is about a relationship that warps into humiliation and self-destruction. The man uses the dress, he hopes, to hide what she's become. Highly toxic stuff.

 
I see your point, and agree.

All right!  Patty, all right! I give up! I'm not putting it off any longer and buying this album!

Wow!  Just $5.99? (on iTunes) everybody should stop putting it off and buy this album.

This sort of behavior reminds me of Arthur Miller's treatment of Marilyn Monroe. Marilyn adored Miller, publicly defended him when he was in trouble with HUAC, and tried hard to win his approval after marriage. Yet she discovered in his diary his disappointment with her, his occasional embarrassment when she talked to his intellectual friends, and his fear that Monroe would hinder his work as a writer. Marilyn also claimed that Miller said in a diary entry that he could only love his daughter. Monroe was devastated and grew even more insecure.  

After Marilyn's death, Miller presented his play "After the Fall" in early 1964. Miller IIRC denied it was based on his marriage to Marilyn, but according to Wikipedia "the play is about a New York Jewish intellectual who decides to reexamine his life in order to determine if he should marry his most recent love, Holga." Most critics felt that the play was Miller's commentary on Marilyn as unstable and pathetic, and his failed marriage. 

 A biographer of Jackie Kennedy is quoted in the Wikipedia entry on the play: "According to Sarah Bradford in her biography America's Queen: The Life of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, 'Jackie, who had admired Arthur Miller enough to seat him at her table at the Malraux dinner, turned on him for his betrayal of Marilyn in his play After the Fall, which opened in New York on January 23, 1964. For loyalty was the ultimate test of character, and in portraying Marilyn as a self-destructive slut whom he had abandoned for her own good, Miller had dismally failed it.” " 

 Maybe Arthur felt some good came of the marriage when he churned the play out. But it's hard for me not to see him as a callous, self-serving jerk. 

 

Interesting!
One of my favorite songs of hers. Not only does it rock, the lyrics elegantly capture an unhealthy relationship.

You must be a drummer, many people rarely pay attention to the drum tracks.  The drums are mixed pretty low, so they shouldn't be able to "swamp" her vocals.

Dude.  Are you even listening to Patty?  When she cuts loose, ain't nobody need worry 'bout no swamp.

"We can get you ten dimes for a dollar, or four quarters. People ask us how we make a profit?The answer is simple-VOLUME!"

Hey Byronape,
  
You are summing up really well many feelings I have about correct spelling.
I might quote your lines. I hope you don't mind.
Congratulations, again. {#Clap}

Language is flexible. The norm today won't be recognized in 100 years. Relax. If t'were so, then it will be but a memery. Life is a crewl reminder of the sadness of loss.

Ay yai yai...where to begin.  I'll just say that language fascism, and especially spelling fasism, is a cruel, evil, and oppressive institution, entirely based on power and money, that literally condems millions, nay billions of people around the world to abject poverty. 

Some leftist you are!

No, I am not joking, being provocative, or being a troll. 

I believe this with all my hart and sole!! 

I'm SOOOOO excited... Patty is going on a solo tour, an acoustic performance and I have two tickets to see her at Eddie Owen's Red Clay Theater near Atlanta.  Come on October !
Always liked hearing this song and didn't note until now that it was Patty Griffin ——— who I thought I didn't like.

Bows on gifts aren't always strings, but they make for some interesting songs when they are.  One of my favorites is PJ Harvey's "Dress".

I was attempting, in perhaps an unsuccessfully humorous way, to point out Horstman's overreaction to Wonderlove's post. Unlike you, I don't assume that an individual is an idiot, or more importantly lacks self-respect (!), because they've misspelled a few words on a music forum. As this issue seems to irritate you so much, if venting that frustration online is a form of therapy, that's a good thing.

First off, you don't know how to spell. Either that or you're so busy trying to get your point off, you forgot to proof your post. It's Sheryl.

And second, two totally different styles. Love both these ladies, but Sheryl was the best early in her career and Patty is better on the tail end of hers. Sheryl is more introspective and quite frankly, made a hell of lot more money and fame than Patty. Does it make her a better artist? Quite arguable. But they are both quite good. I just wouldn't listen to Sheryl today whereas I hang on everything Patty does.

 
No artist can lay claim to the countrified rock and gospel sound evident in both Pattie's and Sheryl's work. I guess you could point out that Sheryl started her career a little before Patti so she's not really stealing from her. But (I hope) neither of these great talents is at the tail end of their careers. They're not actresses who have to stay looking young in order to keep working.

This always sets me to moving. Great voice, great song.  Go Patty.  {#Clap}

I've just read Sara Paretsky's novel Body Work, and this song immediately makes me think of Paretsky's feminist heroine VI Warshawski. That's a good thing :)

You all should have been at the Mercy Lounge a few weeks ago —- Buddy Miller, Julie Miller, PAtty Griffin and about 50 of Nashville Music Row's most famous artists were there and we was rockin'!

To be fair to the OP, a lot of female musicians surely try to sound like this.

After all, this is how it should be done.

Flaming Red is by far my favorite PG album.  It crosses a wide range of emotional spectrums, from front to back... and damn I can't play the first half loud enough.

  Great picture. It's kinda weird to think of this song, especially the edgy, almost angry parts, coming from a woman who looks so unassuming.

Love Patty! {#Dancingbanana_2}
Time and play hasn't taken anything away from this song.  Still a 10!
They're gonna be here in Dallas tomorrow.  Wish I could go, but it's not in the cards.

Ah well, I'd rather see Patty singing and playing her own songs anyway.  :sourgrapes:

The problem with an international station is that when it's morning for us here in California we'd much rather have something to listen to when we're waking up. Something to ease into the day with. Often RP plays head banger music when we're trying to read our email in the morning.
 
 
Uh yeah. Paradise, California to be exact.
