Bird Dog  Everly Brothers

Verse 1:

        J[B]ohnny, he's a joker (he's a bird)
A very funny joker (he's a bird)
        But w[E]hen he jokes my honey (he's a dog)
        His j[B]okin' ain't so funny (what a dog)
        [F#]Johnny is a joker that's a-t[E]ryin' 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)


        H[E]ey, Bird Dog, get away from my quail
        H[B]ey, Bird Dog, you're on the wrong trail
        [F#]Bird Dog you better leave my l[E]ovey-dove al[B7]one
        H[E]ey, Bird Dog, get away from my chick
        H[B]ey, Bird Dog, you better get away quick
        [F#]Bird Dog, you better find a Ch[E]icken Little of your o[B]wn[E], [F#]

(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.
