1. Oh, when I was a lad, Old Shep was a pup
        G7                     C       G7 
   Over hills and meadows we'd stray
          C           A7           D
   Just a boy and his dog, we were both full of fun
      G7                    C    C7
   We grew up together that way
       F          F7          C
   I remember the time at the old swimming hole
        C            A13            D7     G7
   When I would have drowned beyond doubt
        C             A7            D
   Old Shep was right there, to the rescue he came
      G7                           C
   He jumped in and helped pull me out

          C              A7        D9           D7
2. As the years fast did roll, Old Shep he grew old
       G7                     C     G7 
   His eyes were fast growing dim
       C           A7            D
   And one day the doctor looked at me and said
     G7                     C    C7
   I can do no more for him Jim
        F               F7           C
   With hands that were trembling, I picked up my gun
       C           A7              D7     G7
   And aimed it at Shep's faithful head
          C             A7       D9        D7
   But  I just couldn't do it, I wanted to run
     G7                           C
   I wished they would shoot me instead.

      C          A7       D
3. He came to my side and looked up at me
      G7                     C      G7 
   He laid his poor head on my knee
     C                 A7      D
   I stroked the best friend a man ever had
     G7                          C    C7
   I cried 'til I scarcely could see
       F            F7             C
   Old Shep, he has gone where the good doggies go
      C             A7          D7     G7
   No more with Old Shep will I roam
          C           A7              D9          D7
   But if dogs have a heaven, there's one thing I know
       G7                   C
   Old Shep has a wonderful home.
