Old Shep (Alabama)

When I was a lad and old Shep was a pup Over hills and meadows we'd stray Just a boy and his dog, we were both full of fun We grew up together that way I remember the time at the old mill pond When I would've drowned beyond doubt But old Shep was right there, to the rescue he came He jumped in and helped pull me out As, the years passed and rolled, at last he grew old And his eyesight was fast growing dim. Then one day the doctor looked at me and said ?I can't do no more for him, Jim? I went to his side and sat on the ground And laid his old head on my knee Well, he was the best friend that I ever had I cried so I scarcely could see Old Sheppie he knew, he was going to go For he reached out and licked at my hand He looked up at me, just as much as to say We're parting but you understand Now old Sheppie is gone where the good doggies go And no more with old Shep will I roam But if dogs have a heaven, there's one thing for sure Old Shep has a wonderful home
