The Bird Hunters
Turnpike Troubadours
Album: Turnpike Troubadours (2015)

C to D walk in the bridge. Not sure what the chord is called, but it's labeled as B/C here.

Intro: 

|G |G |C |G |C |G |D |D 
|G |G |C |G |C |G |D |Em
|Em|G |G 

Verse:

    |Em        |G     
The covey took wing
|D         |G
Shotguns a singing
  |C           |G          |D    
A pointing dog down in the old logging road

|Em       |G
Danny got three
    |D            |G
And looked back a grinning
  |C       |G          |D  
I fumbled around and I tried to reload

    |C          |G
The country was cold 
         |D           |G
With the sun westward sinking
     |C         |G           |D
It's good to be back in this place

        |C     |G
With my hands around 
  |D           |G
A Belgian made Browning
   |C          |G           |D
My mind on the lines of her face

         |Em        |G
Well now Danny's my buddy
   |D           |G
We grew up like family
|C          |G       |D 
Hunted this timber before we could drive

    |Em         |G
The old English pointer
   |D            |G
He once belonged to me
    |C         |G        |D    
But I gave him up when I moved in '05

|C         |G
Off to the girl
|D         |G
Off to the city
|C       |G         |D
Off on a wing and a chance

       |C                |G
Hell I thought it'd play out
|D             |G
Just like some story
|C         |G        |D
We fell in love at a rodeo dance

Chorus:

         |G            |C       |G
She said go on back to Cherokee County
          |C              |G            |D
Won't you crawl back with nothing but a razor and a comb
|G                         |C           |G
Babe, if you need me, I'll be where you found me
|C       |G           |D             |Em |Em|G 
Go on to hell, honey, I'm headed home

Verse:

          |Em          |G
Dan says, "Look at old Jim
  |D      |G
A dozen Decembers
  |C          |G            |D 
Behind him no worse for the wear


         |Em           |G
And your time spent in Tulsa
    |D            |G
Did not help your shooting
    |C          |G           |D
And look at the gray in your hair


    |C           |G
How good does it feel?
    |D              |G
You belong in these hills
     |C            |G         |D
It's best that you let it all end


              |C           |G
If you'd have married that girl
           |D          |G
You'd have married her family
|C           |G        |D 
You dodged a bullet my friend"

Chorus:

         |G            |C       |G
She said go on back to Cherokee County
          |C              |G            |D
Won't you crawl back with nothing but a razor and a comb
|G                         |C           |G
Babe, if you need me, I'll be where you found me
|C       |G           |D             |Em |Em|G 
Go on to hell, honey, I'm headed home

Bridge:

|Em   
I was beginning 
   |D
To deal with it ending
    |C          |B/C          |G         |D 
The old dog had pointed while part of me died

      |Em    
And a flutter of feathers
       |G   
Then a shotgun to shoulder
  |C             |B/C        |D
I thought of the Fourth of July
          |C          |B/C        |D
She'll be home on the Fourth of July
            |C           |B/C        |D
I bet we'll dance on the Fourth of July

Solo:

|G |G |C |G |C |G |D |D 
|G |G |C |G |C |G |D |Em
|Em|G |G |G |G

Verse:

          |C         |G
Dan says, "Hell of a shot
      |D                |G
Looks like you've still got it
|C             |G           |D 
That's what we came here to do

     |C           |G
It's light enough still
       |D          |G
At the foot of the hill
         |C        |G        |D
We could kick up a single or two"

Chorus:

         |G            |C       |G
She said go on back to Cherokee County
          |C              |G            |D
Won't you crawl back with nothing but a razor and a comb
|G                         |C           |G
Babe, if you need me, I'll be where you found me
|C       |G           |D             |G 
Go on to hell, honey, I'm headed home
|C       |G           |D             |Em |Em|G 
Go on to hell, honey, I'm headed home
