The Bird

George Jones

 C/G
        I curse the day she bought me that old bird
 G
        Squalking,talking,telling everything it ever heard
 C/GF
        She never would have known about Big Betty Brown and me
 C/GGC/G
        But he fowled up and told her some things you won't believe

Verse 2:
 C/G
        Oh my woman moved out on me today
 G
        And left that old stool pigeon parrot trembling in his cage
 C/GF
        I hollered from the front porch and stopped her at the curb
 C/GGC/G
        And the last thing i gave her was the bird

Chorus:
 C/GF
        Oh the last thing i gave her was the bird
 C/G
        And she returned the favor with a few selected words
 FC/G
        I don't have to worry now what's being overheard
 GC/G
        'cause the last thing i gave her was the bird

Verse 3:
 C/G
        She sat the cage beside her on the seat
 G
        And left two streaks of firestone smokin' on the street
 C/GF
        The neighbors ran for cover they could see she was disturbed
 C/GGC/G
        'cause the last thing i gave her was the bird

Chorus (x2).

 C/GGC/G
        Yes the last thing i gave her was the bird
