Neil Young — Old King lyrics

King went a-runnin' after deer
Wasn't scared of jumpin'
Off the truck in high gear
King went a-sniffin'
And he would go
Was the best old hound dog
I ever did know.

I had a dog and his name was King
I told the dog about everything
There in my truck the dog and I
Then one day the King up and died.

Then I thought about
The times we had
Once when I kicked him
When he was bad
Old King sure meant a lot to me
But that hound dog is history.

King went a-runnin' after deer
Wasn't scared of jumpin'
Off the truck in high gear
King went a-sniffin'
And he would go
Was the best old hound dog
I ever did know.

That old King was a friend of mine
Never knew a dog
That was half as fine
I may find one, you never do know
'Cause I still got a long way to go.

I had a dog and his name was King
I told the dog about everything
Old King sure meant a lot to me
But that hound dog is history.

King went a-howlin' after deer
Wasn't scared of jumpin'
Off the truck in high gear
King went a-sniffin'
And he would go
Was the best old hound dog
I ever did know.
