Black dog often sniffs the plate
Dm       (G)      Am
Steaming on the stove
The kids ain't seen you home all day
          Dm       (G)      Am
You're a gentleman born to roam


          Dm                Am
But this black dog don't believe in sin
Dm                     Am
  Think of where the black dog's been
Dm               E7               Am
  Think of where he's been.....today

Repeat Chorus

Have you seen the black dog's teeth
Sharp, like a knife
Have you seen them tear a bone 
or a throat to take a life

Repeat Chorus

Have you seen black dog's eyes
Stare into the fire
It would not occur to him
To question your desire

Repeat Chorus

Iv'e always had a fear of creatures
Cryin' in the dark
And every form of evil
Seems to bear an evil mark

Repeat Chorus

My woman lies beside me
And the black dog at my feet
She keeps me from my wandering life
He robs me of my sleep

Repeat Chorus

I don't know the black dog's name
When I call him, he don't come
How'd I ever get that black dog
Lord I sure never wanted one

Repeat Chorus
