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
