I'm looking for the same song. It's a male singing it and I think his first name is Tom because that's in part of the song. The second verse is about his girlfriend breaking up with him and in the song she says " And Tom, I think that we're through..." The last verse has to do with him moving away from his mother. It was a folk/country type song. I hope this little bit of additional information will help you locate the song.

Brian and Lou,
I actually was just singing what I could remember from this song in my car. I too have not heard it for 15-20 years. I think it was written by someone in Maine but I don't know when or if it ever was recorded officially.
The other line you are missing is:
But a dog just grows old far to soon. I didn't know what to do. I think I could die...

His name is Tom Acousti. He's a family friend of ours. This song was from one of his records in the late 80s I believe. My mom used to play it all the time.
