Old Shep

(Red Foley)
  G               Em        A
Oh, when I was a lad, Old Shep was a pup
      D                      G 
Over hills and meadows we'd stray
                    Em            A
Just a boy and his dog, we were both full of fun
    D                     G   
We grew up together that way
   C                        G
I remember the time at the old swimming hole
                                   A  D
When I would have drowned beyond doubt
     G              Em            A 
Old Shep was right there, to the rescue he came
    D                            G
He jumped in and helped pull me out

As the years fast did roll, Old Shep he grew old
His eyes were fast growing dim
And one day the doctor looked at me and said
I can do no more for him Jim

With hands that were trembling, I picked up my gun
And aimed it at Shep's faithful head
But  I just couldn't do it, I wanted to run
I wished they would shoot me instead.

He came to my side and looked up at me
He laid his poor head on my knee
I stroked the best friend a man ever had
I cried 'til I scarcely could see

Old Shep, he has gone where the good doggies go
No more with Old Shep will I roam
But if dogs have a heaven, there's one thing I know
Old Shep has a wonderful home.
