Old Rover
Written and recorded by Hank Snow
[3/4 time]

C C7
Two little boys and an old family dog
F C
By the banks of a stream sat one day
G7 C A7
The boys decided old Rover must die
D7 G7
A nuisance well out of the way

C C7
The poor old fellow stood close by their side
F E7
His fate he couldn't quite understand
F C A7
With a wag of his tail and a half sobbing wail
D7 G7 C
He reached out and licked at their hands

C7
Remember I'm your best friend boys
F C
Oh no one could love you so true
G7 C A7
Though you may beat me and bang me today
D7 G7
Tomorrow I'll play games with you

C C7
I know I am old and quite in the way
F E7
But life to me still holds a charm
F C A7
Well I've only one favor to ask of you boys
D7 G7 C
Let me spend my last days on the farm

C7
With a rope round his neck they were ready to tie
F C
His pleading seemed of no avail
G7 C A7
Just then one of the boys slipped and fell in the stream
D7 G7
The other stood by deathly pale

C C7
A loud cry for help and old rover plunged in
F E7
No sight of old age or delay
F C A7
And as he slowly swam back to the shore
D7 G7 C
The waves dashing by in his face

repeat #3,4
