Old Shep
Written and Recorded by Red Foley [3/4 time]

C A7 D7
When I was a lad and old Shep was a pup
G7 C
O'er hills and meadows we'd strayed
A7 D7
Just a boy and his dog we were both full of fun
G7 C
We grew up together that way

F C
I remember the time at the old swimming hole
D7 G7
When I would have drowned beyond doubt
C A7 D7
Shep was right there to the rescue he came
G7 C
He jumped in and helped pull me out

A7 D7
So the years sped along and at last he grew old
G7 C
His eye sight was fast growing dim
A7 D7
Then one day the doctor looked at me and said
G7 C
I can't do no more for him Jim

F C
With a hand that was trembling I picked up my gun
D7 G7
I aimed it at Shep’s faithful head
C A7 D7
I just couldn't do it I wanted to run
G7 C
And I wished they'd shoot me instead

A7 D7
I went to his side and I sat on the ground
G7 C
He laid his head on my knees
A7 D7
I stroke the best pal that a man ever found
G7 C
I cried so I scarcely could see

F C
Old Sheppie he knew he was going to go
D7 G7
For he reached out and nipped at my hand
C A7 D7
He looked up at me just as much as to say
G7 C
We're parting but you'll understand

C A7 G7 C
Now old Shep is gone where the good doggies go
Am D7 G7
And no more with old Shep will I roam
C A7 D7
But if dogs have a heaven there's one thing I know
G7 C
Old Shep has a wonderful home
