George Jones The Bird Lyrics

Last updated:

Verse 1:
C/G
I curse the day she bought me that old bird
G
Squalking,talking,telling everything it ever heard
C/G F
She never would have known about Big Betty Brown and me
C/G G C/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/G F
I hollered from the front porch and stopped her at the curb
C/G G C/G
And the last thing i gave her was the bird


Chorus:
C/G F
Oh the last thing i gave her was the bird
C/G
And she returned the favor with a few selected words
F C/G
I don't have to worry now what's being overheard
G C/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/G F
The neighbors ran for cover they could see she was disturbed
C/G G C/G
'cause the last thing i gave her was the bird


Chorus (x2).

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