Earlier today, Jim Dixon posted the lyrics for I Shot Your Dog by Fred Eaglesmith.

Stewie and I commented on another of Fred's dog songs. Here it is for contrast.

HE'S A GOOD DOG
Fred Eaglesmith

He's a good dog. I've had him for years.
Used to get up when I'd walk by, now he just lifts up his ears.
And he thumps his tail on the floor, when I talk to him.
When I talk too long, he just ignores me and goes to sleep again.

He's a good dog. I got him as a pup.
I tried to teach him all the tricks, but then I just gave up,
'Cause he never acted very bright, though his eyes they've got this glow,
And I think he actually knows some things that actually I don't.

And he never barks at strangers, but then he never barks at cars,
And he howls at the coyotes while they're howling at the stars,
And he scratches at the back door 'til someone lets him in,
And then he scratches at the other side to get back out again.

He's a good dog. One of these days
Gonna have to drive him in to town, have him put away.
He don't hear that good no more, an' he can't hardly walk,
But until then I'll look at him and I say . . . he's a good dog.

Here's the chords: Into: G C D   G

G                           C
He's a good dog. I've had him for years.
       D                                                         G
He used to get up when I'd walk by, now he just lifts up his ears.
                                     C
And he thumps his tail on the floor, when I talk to him
               D                                                 G
When I talk too long he just ignores me and goes to sleep again.
