The Tennessee Bird Walk

The Tennessee Bird Walk
(Words and music by Jack Blanchard)

Take away the trees and the birds'll have to sit upon the ground. Umh!
Take away their wings and the birds'll have to walk to get around
And take away the birdbaths and dirty birds will soon be everywhere
Take away their feathers and the birds'll walk around in underwear
Take away their (*Whistle sound) and the birds'll have to whisper
     when they sing
Take away their common sense and they'll be headed southward in the spring

cho: Oh, remember me my darling, when spring is in the air
     When the bald-headed birds are whispering everywhere
     When you see them walkin' southward in their dirty underwear
     It's The Tennessee Birdwalk.

How about some trees, so the birds won't have to sit upon the ground. Umh!
And how about some wings, so the birds won't have to walk to get around
And how about a birdbath or two, so the birds'll all be clean
And how about some feathers, so their underwear no longer will be seen
How about a little (*Whistle sound), so the birds wont have whisper
     when they sing
And how about some common sense, so they won't be blockin' traffic in the
spring.

REPEAT CHORUS:

It's The Tennessee Birdwalk; It's The Tennessee Birdwalk; It's The Tennessee
Birdwalk.

Recorded by Jack Blanchard and Misty Morgan
