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        d            d         d
 Old King sure meant a lot to me
 I may find one,but i never do know
 Old king sure meant a lot to me
     d          d      C   G5    F5
 but that hound dog is his-to -  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.
