He danced for those at minstrel shows and county fairs 
G               A
throughtout the south
D              F#m       Bm                 A
He spoke with tears of 15 years of how his dog and he 
G               A
just traveled about
G          D    F#m     Bm         A   
His dog up and died, he up and died, 
G                             A
and after 20 years he still grieves
Bm     A      Bm      A      Bm      A

He said "I dance now at every chance at honky-tonks
G                A 
for drinks and tips
D                 F#m           Bm          A
But most of the time I spend behind these county bars,
G                 A 
cause I drinks a bit"
G            D  F#m        Bm         A 
He shook his head, yes he shook his head,
G                        A 
I heard someone ask please?
