Bird Dog

Everly Brothers

 ////
Verse 1:

 B
        Johnny, he's a joker (he's a bird)
A very funny joker (he's a bird)
 E
        But when he jokes my honey (he's a dog)
 B
        His jokin' ain't so funny (what a dog)
 F#E
        Johnny is a joker that's a-tryin' to steal my baby
B E A F# (as per intro)
(He's a bird dog)

Verse 2:

Johnny sings a love song (like a bird)
He sings the sweetest love song (you ever heard)
But when he sings to my gal (what a howl)
To me he's just a wolf dog (on the prowl)
Johnny wants to fly away and puppy-love my baby
(He's a bird dog)

Bridge:

 E
        Hey, Bird Dog, get away from my quail
 B
        Hey, Bird Dog, you're on the wrong trail
 F#EB7
        Bird Dog you better leave my lovey-dove alone
 E
        Hey, Bird Dog, get away from my chick
 B
        Hey, Bird Dog, you better get away quick
 F#EB
        Bird Dog, you better find a Chicken Little of your own

(repeat intro)

Verse 3:

Johnny kissed the teacher (he's a bird)
He tiptoed up to reach her (he's a bird)
Well, he's the teacher's pet now (he's a dog)
What he wants he can get now (what a dog)
He even made the teacher let him sit next to my baby
(He's a bird dog)

(repeat chorus)

(repeat intro; fade)

I prefer to bring it down two semitones. It makes it much easier to play.
