Old Shep

Original and similar lyrics
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

Old Shep

JOHNNY CASH "The Johnny Cash Children's Album"
When I was a lad And old shep 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 swimmin hole When I would have 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 fast did roll Old shep 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 jim With hands that were trembling I picked up my gun And aimed it at sheps faithful head I just couldnt 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 shep he has gone Where the good doggies go And no more with old shep will I roam But if dogs have a heaven Theres one thing I know Old shep has a wonderful home

ELVIS PRESLEY "Great Country Songs"
(words music by Foley - Westpar) 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 swimmin' hold When I would have drowned beyond doubt But old Shep was right there To the rescue he came He jumped in and then pulled me out As the years fast did roll Old Shep 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 Jim With hands that were trembling I picked up my gun And aimed it at Shep'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 Shep he has 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 I know Old Shep has a wonderful home

That's Right (You're Not From Texas)

LYLE LOVETT "The Road To Ensenada"
(Lyle Lovett, Willis Alan Ramsey, and Alison Rogers) You say you're not from Texas Man as if I couldn't tell You think you pull your boots on right And wear your hat so well So pardon me my laughter 'Cause I sure do understand Even Moses got excited When he saw the promised land That's right you're not from Texas That's right you're not from Texas That's right you're not from Texas But Texas wants you anyway That's right you're not from Texas That's right you're not from Texas That's right you're not from Texas But Texas wants you anyway See I was born and raised in Texas And it means so much to me Though my girl comes from down in Georgia We were up in Tennessee And as we were driving down the highway She asked me baby what's so great How come you're always going on About your Lone Star State I said that's right you're not from Texas That's right you're not from Texas That's right you're not from Texas But Texas wants you anyway That's right you're not from Texas That's right you're not from Texas That's right you're not from Texas But Texas wants you anyway Oh the road it looked so lovely As she stood there on the side And she grew smaller in my mirror As I watched her wave goodbye Those boys from Carolina They sure enough could sing But when they came on down to Texas We all showed them how to swing Now David's on the radio And old Champ's still on the guitar And Uncle Walt he's home with Heidi Hiding in her loving arms That's right you're not from Texas That's right you're not from Texas That's right you're not from Texas But Texas wants you anyway That's right you're not from Texas That's right you're not from Texas That's right you're not from Texas But Texas wants you anyway They're OK in Oklahoma Up in Arkansas they're fair But those old folks in Missouri They don't even know you're there But at a dance hall down in Texas That's the finest place to be The women they all look beautiful And their men will buy your beer for free And they'll say that's right you're not from Texas That's right you're not from Texas That's right you're not from Texas But Texas wants you anyway That's right you're not from Texas That's right you're not from Texas That's right you're not from Texas But Texas wants you anyway So won't you let me help you Mister Just pull your hat down the way I do And buy your pants just a little longer And next time somebody laughs at you You just tell 'em you're not from Texas That's right you're not from Texas That's right you're not from Texas But Texas wants you anyway That's right you're not from Texas That's right you're not from Texas That's right you're not from Texas But Texas wants you anyway

Conchita, The Waitress

Brave Combo "Polkasonic"
Let them say this love has no ending 'Cause I smile I took my time then But it took restaurant spending Till I was sure that she'd be all mine Let's see how it was that I met her And my love I did confess then Years ago at that small cafe Where she worked bright and early each morning No one else could care just the same as Conchita, the waitress my darling friend 'Cause she seemed so steady No nonsense All ready with coffee each time we met y que pasteles deliciosos como t⌦ã n㬳 mi amiga! Have you heard the truth about love yet? It will wane or steadily grow on Well, I grew to love this Conchita And of course she'd soon be knowing So I bought a gold ankle bracelet Dropped it into my empty cup And I said Conchita, look what's left. Won't you please come here and fill me up? When she looked she got so embarrassed She said with compassion, do you want to choke? And she turned away from the table I cried out I love you, this is no joke!
