One eyed hound

Song written by: Peter Gabriel, Tony Banks


Mister you've been caught at last
Chasing dogs in the moonlight
This man committed a sin
This man he never can win
Mister you've got one more chance
If you catch the hound when the sun shines
This man committed a sin
This man he never can win
And it's all gone wrong
Night is the time for chasing the one-eyed hound
And it's all been tried before
Night is the time for chasing the one-eyed hound
Have you seen the one-eyed hound?
Tell me where he's going
This man committed a sin
This man he never can win
Every place that I have been
No-one else has seen him
This man committed a sin
This man he never can win
And it's all gone wrong
Night is the time for chasing the one-eyed hound
And it's all been tried before
Night is the time for chasing the one-eyed hound
Everybody's telling me exactly where to go
This man committed a sin
This man he never can win
People call and people talk
But they don't reach agreement
This man committed a sin
This man he never can win
And it's all gone wrong
Night is the time for chasing the one-eyed hound
And it's all been tried before
Night is the time for chasing the one-eyed hound
Night is the time for chasing the one-eyed hound
