          G                       C      G/B    
I was the driver for the drive by of the neighbor's dog

Am                                    D/F#
Dad had always hated it and he said, "Come on, son,

Dm                        G                 C9
Get into the Vega now and I'll go get my shotgun."


         G                 C         G/B    
It was a military holiday. Kids were everywhere.

  Am                            D/F#
I hid behind the steering wheel and tried to disappear

Dm                                   G                         C    C7
Tried to speak but couldn't. Dad was whistling and drinking beer.



       F                        G         C      G/B
And, I prayed "Dear God, if you save this dog

       Am        Dm           E          Am
I will never get high. I will never jack off.

       F                        G               C   G/B
I will do all the things that I should but have not

          F                 C   G
I'll be a good boy from now on."



   G                             C           G/B    
We turned around the corner soon and saw the neighbor's yard

Am                       D/F#
Dad lit up a cigarette. Rolled his window down.

Dm                             G                       C    C7
And grinning like an idiot, he stuck his head and body out.



       F                        G          C      G/B
And, I prayed "Dear God, if you save this dog

       Am        Dm           E          Am
I will never get high. I will never jack off.

       F                        G               C   G/B
I will be all the things that I should but have not

          F                 E7sus4   Am        Am/G
I'll be a good boy from now on.

          F                 C        G
I'll be a good boy from now on."



         E7          E7sus4         Am           G
Well, he popped in a shell and took aim with the gun

        Am          G            E/G#        Am
Then, a flash and a bang and the dog, it was gone.


       F                  C   G                F                        C     G
Jumped up and it ran away.             Dad had shot right through his chain

E7        E7sus4        F        G


                 G                            C         G/B    
Well, dad said, "Take me to the Dairy Freeze, I want to have a shake."

   Am                                D/F#
We sipped them on the benches there, stared out on the lake.

Dm                             G                   C    C7
And dad has never said another word about that day.



      F                    G       C        G/B
And I hope you're not disappointed God

         Am        Dm      E          Am
'Cause I still get high. I still jack off.

        F                        G                  C   G/B
And you knew I was lying but you still saved that dog

              F                 B7   Am        Am/G
You're such a good God

              F                  C        G
You're such a good, good God 

              F               B7        Am        Am/G
You're such a good, goddamned backwards dog

               F
I'll be a good boy from now on
