INTRO:[Accordion Over]  
|D7 D7 |G G |


CHORUS 1:
  G                     C 
A four-legged friend, a four-legged friend,
D7                  G
He'll never Let You Down.
                               C 
He's honest and faithful right up to the end,     (First Time Only)
     D7                                     G     [D7   D7   G   G]
That wonderful one, two, three, four-legged friend.


VERSE 1:
  G                       C
A woman's like cactus and cactus can hurt,
       D7                                    G
'Cause she's just a tight-waisted winky-eyed flirt.
                                    C
She'll soon have your land and your pride and your gold,
    D7                                 G
And bury you deep long before you grow old.


REPEAT CHORUS


INSTRUMENTAL 1:[Violin & Lead Over] 
|G G C C   |D7 D7 G G |
|C C D7 D7 |D7 G G    | 


VERSE 2:
  G                    C
A two-legged hombre is worthless as sand,
      D7                                   G
He'll smile like a saint with a gun in his hand.
                               C
He'll promise to stick by your side like a pal,
    D7                                  G
But he'll also promise the same to your gal.


REPEAT CHORUS


INSTRUMENTAL 1:[Accordion & Lead Over] 
|G G C C   |D7 D7 G G |
|C C D7 D7 |D7 G G    | 


VERSE 3:[Slow single strum chords, until last line]
    G                        C 
Who carries your burden, who carries your load,
   D7                              G
On tumbleweed land or a long dusty road.
                              C
Who asks you no questions, who tells you no lies,
     D7                                     G
That four-legged friend with the two honest eyes.


CODA:
  G                     C 
A four-legged friend, a four-legged friend,
D7                  G
He'll never let you down.
                               C 
He's honest and faithful right up to the end,     
     D7                    G      
That wonderful four-legged friend.
     D7                                     G
That wonderful one, two, three, four-legged friend. -- "Whoa, Trigger!"


[End]

One of the first songs I learnt to sing, as a kid. As a three to four year-old on a wind-up 78 r.p.m. record player,. Out on the back verandah, in sunny Adelaide in the late 50's. It's a happy song! 'Love it. :-R
