Tom: D [A][Bdim][A[D][A[D] When [D]I was a [Blad, and old [EShep was a pup, o'er [Ahills and meadows [A]we'd [D]roam, just a boy and his [Bdog, we were [Eboth full of fun, we [A]grew up [Bdim]to[Agether that [D]way. I [Dre[G]member [Dthe [Gm]time at the [D]old swimming hole, when I would have [Adim]drowned beyond [Adoubt, [D]Shep was right [Bthere to the [Erescue he came, he [Ajumped in [Bdim]and [Ahelped pull me [D]out.[Bdim][A So the [D]years rolled a[Blong and at [Elast he grew old, his [Aeyesight was fast gro[A]wing [D]dim. Then one day the [Bdoctor looked [Eat me and said, I [A]can't do [Bdim]no [Amore for him [D]Jim. [DWith a [G]hand that [Dwas [Gm]trembling, I [D]picked up my gun, I aimed it at [Adim]Shep's faithful [Ahead. I [D]just couldn't [Bdo it, I [Ewanted to run, and I [Awished that [Bdim]they'd [Ashoot me in[D]stead.[Bdim][A I [D]went to his [Bside and [Esat on the ground, he [Alaid his head on [A]my [D]knee, I stroked the best [Bpal that a [Eman ever found, I [A]cried so [Bdim]I [Ascarcely could [D]see. [DOld [G]Sheppie [Dhe [Gm]knew, he was [D]going to go, for he reached out and [Adim]licked at my [Ahand. He [D]looked up at [Bme, just as [Emuch as to say, we're [Aparting, [Bdim]but [Ayou under[D]stand.[Bdim][A Now [D]old Shep is [Bbgone, where the [Agood doggies [D]go, and no [Bm]more with old [EShep will I [Aroam. But if [D]dogs have a [Bheaven, there's [Eone thing I know, old [A]Shep has [Bdim]a [Awon - [D]der - [Aful [D]home.
