Old Shep  Elvis Presley

as recorded by Elvis Presley
1. Oh[G], when I was a l[Em]ad, Old Sh[A]ep was a pup
Over h[D]ills and meadows we'd s[G]tray
Just a boy and his d[Em]og, we were bo[A]th full of fun
We g[D]rew up together that w[G]ay
I r[C]emember the time at the o[G]ld swimming hole
When I would have drowned beyond do[A--D]ubt
Old S[G]hep was right t[Em]here, to the r[A]escue he came
He j[D]umped in and helped pull me o[G]ut
2. 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.
3. 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.
