Capo on the 3rd fret.

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
