          C
i was the driver for the driveby


of the neighbor's dog

Am
dad had always hated it

D/F#
and he said "come on son,

Dm
get into the vega now,

    G                        Cadd9   G
and i'll go get my shotgun."
it was a military holiday
and kids were everywhere
i hid behind the steering wheel
and tried to disappear
tried to speak but couldn't


        G                         C   C7
dad was whistling and drinking beer


Chorus:

      F
and i prayed "dear god,

       G         C   G/B
if you save this dog

       Am        Dm
i will never get high

       E          Am
i will never jack off

Am/G   F                        G               C   G/B
i will do all the things that i should but have not

          F                       C   G
i'll be a good boy from now on"



Verse: in this verse (and the last as well), the first repeat of the
       chord progression is omitted, and it ends on the C7 leading
       into the chorus as before.

we turned around the corner soon
and saw the neighbor's yard
did lit up a cigarette
and rolled his window down
and grinning like an idiot
he stuck his head and body out


Chorus:

and i prayed "dear god,
if you save this dog
i will never get high
i will never jack off
i will be all the things that i should but have not

          F                     E7sus4   Am   Am/G
i'll be a good boy from now on

          F                     C   G
i'll be a good boy from now on"


Bridge:

        E7          E7sus4
well he popped in a shell

     Am           G
took aim with the gun

       Am          G
then a flash and a bang

        E/G#        Am
and the dog, it was gone...


       F                  C   G
jumped up and it ran away

        F                            C   G
dad had shot right through his chain

E7  E7sus4   F  G


Verse:

well dad said "take me to the dairy freeze
i want to have a shake"
we sipped them on the benches there
and stared out on the lake
and dad has never said another word about that day


Chorus:

and i hope you're not disappointed in me
'cause i still get high
and i still jack off
and you knew i was lying but you still saved that dog

              F          B7   Am   Am/G
you're such a good god

              F              C   G
you're such a good good god

              F                      B7   Am   Am/G
you're such a good goddamn backwards dog

              F
and i'll be a good boy from now on
