THAT OLD DOG HAD SOUL

Jack Tempchin, Robert Savery

That dog had no pedigree
His coat was black and white
He'd roam the streets of town all day
And stay out late at night
He'd go out howling at the moon
And come home walking slow
He took it as he found it
'Cause that old dog had soul

That old dog had soul
That old dog had soul
He'd find his way to trouble
Just following his nose
Always seemed to make a friend
Wherever he would go
And in this town we all agree
That that old dog had soul

That dog knew he was born free
He'd be nobody's slave
But if you'd treat him with respect
You'd get back what you gave
He'd stop and sit with you all day
If you were feeling low
You knew he knew a thing or two
'Cause that old dog had soul

That old dog had soul
That old dog had soul
He'd find his way to trouble
Just following his nose
Always seemed to make a friend
Wherever he would go
And in this town we all agree
That that old dog had soul

I guess that dog really was
A lot like you and me
He lived his life and left not much
Behind for history
Now no one really knows what gives
Life meaning in the end
But one thing I can say for sure
He was this man's best friend

That old dog had soul
That old dog had soul
He'd find his way to trouble
Just following his nose
Everyone will miss him now
That's one thing I know
And in this town we all agree
That that old dog had soul
