Memoires Of An Owned Dog

  		

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
