This song is the only original on The Hillbilly Thomists self-titled album.
The title I’m A Dog is a reference to a story about Dominic, after whom the Dominican Order is named.

The depths of this desiccation,
The height of these scraping towers,
The width of this wasting
I see potential, for action.

Inside I hold a treasure
Take a hold of this earthen vessel
So worn and weary
But there’s still potential for action.

I’m a dog with a torch in my mouth for my Lord
Making noise while I got time
Spreading fire while I got earth
How you wish it was already lit.
Give me your fire, I’ll do your work
I’m just a dog for my Lord.
