I really love this song! The lyrics are just incredible. You're going to be changing the bassnotes throughout the whole song. I'll try to get the bassnotes right, they are pretty important for the sound of the song. Intro: C - C/G - C - C/G C - C/G - C - C/G C C/G the food was as I like it... G G/D Cold, wet F F/C C C/G And in that wonderful tin can shape Am Am/E I had it marked in a paw print F F/C on the dog door C C C/B C/A G the day that I finally planned my escape C C/G the milkman, he tried G G/D you can bet I wanted to survive F F/C C C/G but the truck it just came far too fast Am Am/E So I write on these scraps F F/C my remembrances past C C/G G G/D so you don't blame yourself that I've died F F/C they put horses out to pasture C C/G and the birds come home to roost F F/C ain't nothin' for a puppy C C/G but the backyard on the loose F F/C now I know my job was to C Am lie idly beside F G C C/G the way the sun retreats for the moon C C/G i had dreams of walking G G/D the world on my own F F/C four on the floor C C/G every night all alone Am Am/E i was ready to work F F/C for the scruff on my neck C C/G yearning to find something G G/D of my own to protect C C/G my bark, then, was surely G G/D bigger than my bite F F/C chewing the cud could've been C C/G my biggest dog fight Am Am/E and you know how they say F F/C we only hear certain things that you say C C/G well, it never mattered much to me G G/D but for the will of the way F F/C they put horses out to pasture C C/G and the birds come home to roost F F/C ain't nothin' for a puppy C C/G but the backyard on the loose F F/C now I know my job was to C Am lie idly beside F G C C/G the way the sun retreats for the moon Bb F now I loosen this collar C C/G for a dog bone bow tie Bb F to go up and meet C C/G the big dog in the sky Bb F i'll tell him when I get there C C#dim I was spoiled in your place F F/C with the hopes that my spirit G is honored by your grace C C/G so after you read this G G/D memoir one day F F/C or after you hear C C/G my lonesome song play Am Am/E don't you trouble your mind F F/C this old hound's doin' fine C C/G you know, goodbyes are just words G G/D like a clock is to time C C/G so sorry I'm not with you G G/D so sorry I can't be F F/C please know I was C C/G the best friend this old mutt could be Am Am/E if you remember that spot F F/C where my favorite tree grows C C/G G I hung up my leash on a branch C now it's yours Hope you like it, I think it's pretty correct.
