I was just a rookie on the Tucson force
When we rolled up on that accident
Sarge said it was worse than he had seen in years
Small Toyota burned and ripped and bent

And then Sarge said that the hardest part for him
Was when we notified the next of kin
We just found a big ole hound behind a fence
His sad eyes somehow knew he’d lost his best friend

Sarge said, “lemme tell ya, Sonny
This job ain’t for ev’ryone
There ain’t much thanks…there ain’t much money
And the work is never done
And this job ain’t for someone
Who’s afraid to die
Then there’ll be days, you’ll need God’s grace
Or you’ll just break down and cry”

Though Sarge used his whole day off to call around
No one wanted to adopt that homeless hound
Since his wife passed away Sarge had lived alone
So he told me that he’d take that poor dog home

He said, “lemme tell ya, Sonny
This job ain’t for ev’ryone
There ain’t much thanks…there ain’t much money
And the work is never done
And this job ain’t for someone
Who’s afraid to die
Then there’ll be days, you’ll need God’s grace
Or you’ll just break down and cry”

Then last month some people called the police
Their new neighbor was disturbing the peace
Sarge went up and pounded on that door
And some tweaker answered with a .44

O I went and found that big ole hound on Sarge’s lawn
His sad eyes somehow knew his best friend was gone
And the first night I shared my house with that dog
I recalled what Sarge’d said about this job

He said, “lemme tell ya, Sonny
This job ain’t for ev’ryone
There ain’t much thanks…there ain’t much money
And the work is never done
And this job ain’t for someone
Who’s afraid to die
Then there’ll be days, you’ll need God’s grace
Or you’ll just break down and cry

O there’ll be days, even with God’s grace
you’ll break down and cry”

Yeah, I was just a rookie on the Tucson force…
