Chords and Lyrics


Oh little [C]birdie, why you [F]moping?
Little [C]birdie, future [C]open!
Oh little [F]birdie, you can be [F]flying!
[C]Birdie, laughing and [C]crying.
My [G]Birdie, a chuckle.
[F]Birdie, keep on [C]trying!
Things are getting [G]better…

Remarks

This song should be played as slow, shuffled 5/4 beat. It’s essentially a 12 bar blues:

C F C C F F C C G F C G

The Baseline is done in Half-Notes, amounting to six bars of 5/2 beats…

C G C F A | C G C G C | F C F C F | C G C G C | G B G F A | C E G B G

The reggae skanking guitar chords thus goes like this..

C C F F F | C C C C C | F F F F F | C C C C C | G G F F F | C C C G G
