vers:
D5 d d f g
2 Then I thought about the time we had;
3 That old king was a friend of mine,
4 I had a dog and his name was king,
d d d C g g
once when I kicked him when he was bad.
never knew a dog that was half as fine
I told the dog ablout every thing
[D5] Old King [d]sure meant a [d]lot to me[d]
I may find one,but i never do know
Old king sure meant a lot to me
but [d]that hound [d]dog is [C]his-[G5]to - [F5]ry (play intro+chorus)
'cause I still got a long way to go (play intro)
ut that hound dog is his -to -ry (play intro+chorus)
(play midplay*2 and improvise)
end on D5
That's it pal.
Oh!- the bass tab well- play half note's and additional fourthnotes.
But most of all- get the rythm right!-this is country.
