																				Am                                   Dm              Am
Black dog up and sniffed his plate a-steamin' on the stove
Am                                Dm                         Am
Kids ain't seen you home all day, you're a gentleman born to roam
Dm             Am
Black dog don't believe in sin
Dm                 Am
Think of where the black dog's been
Dm             C    Em   Am
Think of where he's been today

Have you seen the black dog's teeth, sharp like a knife?
Have you seen him tear apart a throat, to take a life?
Black dog don't believe in sin
Think of where the black dog's been
Think of where he's been today

Have you seen the black dog's eyes starin' in the fire?
It would not occur to him to question your desire
Black dog don't believe in sin
Think of where the black dog's been
Think of where he's been today



    

I've always had a fear of creatures cryin' in the dark
And every form of evil seems to bear an evil mark
Black dog don't believe in sin
Think of where the black dog's been
Think of where he's been today

My man lay beside me and my black dog's at my feet
He keeps me from my wanderin' life and he robs me of my sleep
Black dog don't believe in sin
Think of where the black dog's been
Think of where he's been today

Now I don't know the black dog's name but when I call him he will come
How'd I ever get that black dog? Lord, he's shown me what he wants
Black dog don't believe in sin
Think of where the black dog's been
Think of where he's been today

Black dog don't believe in sin
Think of where the black dog's been
Think of where he's been

Black dog don't believe in sin
Think of where the black dog's been
Think of where he's been

Black dog up and sniffed his plate a-steamin' on the stove
Kids ain't seen you home all day, you're a gentleman born to roam
Black dog don't believe in sin
Think of where the black dog's been
Think of where he's been today

Have you seen the black dog's teeth, sharp like a knife?
Have you seen him tear apart a throat, to take a life?
Black dog don't believe in sin
Think of where the black dog's been
Think of where he's been today

Have you seen the black dog's eyes starin' in the fire?
It would not occur to him to question your desire
Black dog don't believe in sin
Think of where the black dog's been
Think of where he's been today

I've always had a fear of creatures cryin' in the dark
And every form of evil seems to bear an evil mark
Black dog don't believe in sin
Think of where the black dog's been
Think of where he's been today

My man lay beside me and my black dog's at my feet
He keeps me from my wanderin' life and he robs me of my sleep
Black dog don't believe in sin
Think of where the black dog's been
Think of where he's been today

Now I don't know the black dog's name but when I call him he will come
How'd I ever get that black dog? Lord, he's shown me what he wants
Black dog don't believe in sin
Think of where the black dog's been
Think of where he's been today

Black dog don't believe in sin
Think of where the black dog's been
Think of where he's been

Black dog don't believe in sin
Think of where the black dog's been
Think of where he's been
