Ci (x32010@1)was the driver for the driveby

of the neighbor's dog

Amdad (x02210@1)had always hated it

and he said "come on son,

Dmget (xx0231@1)into the vega now,

G (320003@1)                      Cadd9 (x32030@1) Gand (320003@1)i'll go get my shotgun."
it was a military holiday
and kids were everywhere
i hid behind the steering wheel
and tried to disappear
tried to speak but couldn't

G (320003@1)                       C (x32010@1) C7dad (x32310@1)was whistling and drinking beer


Fand (133211@1)i prayed "dear god,

G (320003@1)       C (x32010@1) G/Bif (143121@7)you save this dog

Am (x02210@1)      Dmi (xx0231@1)will never get high

F (133211@1)                     C (x32010@1) Gi'll (320003@1)be a good boy from now on"

Verse: in this verse (and the last as well), the first repeat of the
       chord progression is omitted, and it ends on the C7 leading
       into the chorus as before.

we turned around the corner soon
and saw the neighbor's yard
did lit up a cigarette
and rolled his window down
and grinning like an idiot
he stuck his head and body out


and i prayed "dear god,
if you save this dog
i will never get high
i will never jack off
i will be all the things that i should but have not
