"Old Shep"

[Verse]
When I was a lad
And old sheep was a pup
Over hills and meadows we'd play
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 swimming hole
When I would have drowned beyond doubt
But old sheep was right there
To the rescue he came
He jumped in and helped pull me out
As the years fast did roll
Old sheep he grew old
His eyes were fast growing dim
And one day the doctor looked at me and said
I can do no more for him
With hands that were trembling
I picked up my gun
And aimed it at sheep’s faithful head
I just couldn’t do it
I wanted to run
I wish they would shoot me instead
He came to my side
And looked up at me
And laid his old head on my knee
I had struck the best friend that a man ever had
I cried so I scarcely could see
Old sheep he has gone
Where the good doggies go
And no more with old sheep will I roam
But if dogs have a heaven
There is one thing I know
Old sheep has a wonderful home
