Guest_Ray - thanks Those are the most complete lyrics I've seen. Can I swipe 'em? Who should I credit them to?

Has anyone every read the book the film is based on (of the same name I think)?

Every time the film comes on the History Channel or AMC, I wind up turning on the Tv and letting it run in the background just so i can hear the songs. the scene that always gets me though is when the poor Bloodhound dog dies after chasing Luke and his handler holds his limp body to his chest and weeps.

Story is those bloodhounds were all property of the Florida State of Corrections and while most of the film was shot in stockton CA, the chase scene was done in Florida with those genuine DOC dogs. Obviously that dog didn't really die, but lord help me, I cry like a baby whenever a doggie bites it in a movie. I embarrased my husband and inlaws when we went to see 8 Below earlier this year and I broke down crying at one of the dog's death's. it was particularly poignant mind you (in my defense). I got so broke up I had to excuse myself for a few minutes. When i stepped out, I saw several parents comforting children similarly distressed. Yes, I am a big baby.
