The Bird  George Jones

********************** THE BIRD ********************
performed by George Jones.
Capo on the 3rd fret.
Verse 1:
[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
[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
Thanks to David M. Potter ( for the lyrics.
