There´s life in the old dog yet

Song Author Phil Coulter Lyrics by: Ekki vitað Performer: Ronnie Drew Submitted by: Forseti
[Am]    [E7]    [Am]    
[Am]In my time, I’ve been a few places
[Dm]And I’ve many a story to [Am]tell   
[Dm]Here I am, still as strong
As I’ve been[Am] all along
I’m not [Dm]ready for Heaven or [E7]Hell.

[Am]There are people who do need reminding
[Dm]That I’m still the boss around h[Am]ere   
[Dm]I still call every shots
And I’ll [Am]tell you what’s what - and what’s [Dm]not   
Do I m[E7]ake myself cl[Am]ear?   

[C]I’m not rea[F]dy to roll ov[C]er  
I’m sti[E7]ll the daddy of them [Am]all   
I’m still[F] the top ba[C]nana
They st[D]ill answer when I c[G]all.

[C]I’m older, y[F]es, but I’m w[C]iser
And they[E7] better not f[Am]orget
I’m not [F]ready to roll o[C]ver  
[Dm]‘Cause there’s li[G]fe in the old dog[C] yet.

[Am]    [E7]    
[Am]You can put an old head on young shoulders,
[Dm]My advice is the best I can g[Am]ive   
[Dm]Let them make their mistakes
Let them fight[Am] for their breaks
Let them learn h[Dm]ow to love and to li[E7]ve.   

[Am]I’ve only got the one daughter
[Dm]Time she married a man of her [Am]own   
[Dm]And the one I have planned
Has got plenty of[Am] land
She’ll be gra[Dm]nd, and I’ll[E7] stand all al[Am]one.   

I[C]’m not rea[F]dy to roll ov[C]er  
I’m sti[E7]ll the daddy of them [Am]all   
I’m still[F] the top ba[C]nana
They[D] still answer when I[G] call.

[C]I’m older, y[F]es, but I’m w[C]iser
And they [E7]better not fo[Am]rget   
[F]I’m not ready to roll [C]over
[Dm]‘Cause there’s li[G]fe in the old dog [C]yet.

[Am]    [Dm]    [Am]    [Dm]    [Am]    [E7 ]    [Am]    

I[C]’m not rea[F]dy to roll ov[C]er  
I’m sti[E7]ll the daddy of them a[Am]ll   
I’m stil[F]l the top ba[C]nana
They[D] still answer when I[G] call.

[C]I’m older, y[F]es, but I’m w[C]iser
And they[E7] better not forg[Am]et   
[F]I’m not ready to roll ov[C]er  
[Dm]‘Cause there’s li[G]fe in the old dog y[C]et.  
[Dm]‘Cause there’s lif[G]e in this old dog [C]yet.


In my time, I’ve been a few places
And I’ve many a story to tell
Here I am, still as strong
As I’ve been all along
I’m not ready for Heaven or Hell.

There are people who do need reminding
That I’m still the boss around here
I still call every shots
And I’ll tell you what’s what - and what’s not
Do I make myself clear?

I’m not ready to roll over
I’m still the daddy of them all
I’m still the top banana
They still answer when I call.

I’m older, yes, but I’m wiser
And they better not forget
I’m not ready to roll over
‘Cause there’s life in the old dog yet.


You can put an old head on young shoulders,
My advice is the best I can give
Let them make their mistakes
Let them fight for their breaks
Let them learn how to love and to live.

I’ve only got the one daughter
Time she married a man of her own
And the one I have planned
Has got plenty of land
She’ll be grand, and I’ll stand all alone.

I’m not ready to roll over
I’m still the daddy of them all
I’m still the top banana
They still answer when I call.

I’m older, yes, but I’m wiser
And they better not forget
I’m not ready to roll over
‘Cause there’s life in the old dog yet.

[E7 ]

I’m not ready to roll over
I’m still the daddy of them all
I’m still the top banana
They still answer when I call.

I’m older, yes, but I’m wiser
And they better not forget
I’m not ready to roll over
‘Cause there’s life in the old dog yet.
‘Cause there’s life in this old dog yet.
