can't remember a song

To Board or List of M.J.
About three years ago in a small town in Indiana, I saw Michael Johnson perform live for a Fireman's Banquet. He sang a song about a dog he found that had been abused. No matter how he tried to heal the hurt, the dog never got better. I guess the point of the song is that some pain never heals.

Anyone remember that song. The name of it, the lyrics, the music sheet.

Thanks for any help I can get.
