The Bird  George Jones

        [C/G]I curse the day she bought me that old bird
        Squalking,talking,telling everything it ever h[G]eard
        [C/G]She never would have known about Big B[F]etty Brown and me
        But [C/G]he fowled up and told her some th[G]ings you won't bel[C/G]ieve


Verse 2:
        [C/G]Oh my woman moved out on me today
        And left that old stool pigeon parrot trembling in his c[G]age
        [C/G]I hollered from the front porch and st[F]opped her at the curb
        And [C/G]the last thing i g[G]ave her was the b[C/G]ird


Chorus:
        [C/G]Oh the last thing i gave her was the b[F]ird
        And she returned the favor with a few selected w[C/G]ords
        I[F] don't have to worry now what's being overh[C/G]eard
        'cause the last thing i g[G]ave her was the b[C/G]ird


Verse 3:
        [C/G]She sat the cage beside her on the seat
        And left two streaks of firestone smokin' on the str[G]eet
        [C/G]The neighbors ran for cover they could[F] see she was disturbed
        '[C/G]cause the last thing i g[G]ave her was the b[C/G]ird


Chorus (x2).

        [C/G]Yes the last thing i g[G]ave her was the b[C/G]ird
