INTRO: D G D G B C..D G D G


#1.
G                 C              G
I remember back a long time ago, in the days 
      D
of my childhood.
G                       C
In the evenin' when the sun was sinkin' low, 
G              D
walkin' in the wildwood.
G            C                             G
Skippin' and flippin' through the flowers, we'd 
           D
go hand-in-hand.
G               C                    G
Lookin' back on all the happy hours, anybody  
                 F       C
could understand you and me, babe, just got to
D
be, now.


CHORUS:
           G              E
Birds of a feather, la la la la la la la.
Am           D                        G
We should be together like birds of a feather..
      E
la la la la la la la.
Am           D                        G
We should be together like, yeah..oh, yeah.


#2.
G                C                      G
You and I didn't have a lot of friends, didn't have 
    D
too much to say.
G                  C              G
So, they never did let us join in all the games that 
     D
they used to play.
G                 C               G              D
Seems like it was only yesterday, kinda thinkin' junior

high. 
G                   C                G
I remember what the kids used to say as we'd go 
              F       C        G                  D
strollin' by..you and me, now, sure enough got to be, 

now.


CHORUS:
           G              E
Birds of a feather, la la la la la la la.
Am           D                        G
We should be together like birds of a feather..
      E
la la la la la la la.
Am           D                        G
We should be together like, yeah..oh, yeah.


BRIDGE:
G                 B            C                D
Time goes rollin' by, and they say that you and I will go 
    G        B
our separate ways.
    C                                 G
But birds of a feather will always be together.


#3.
G                 C                       G
Your folks didn't want me hangin' 'round, said that I 
    D
was bad for you.
G                    C                   G
So, we'd meet on the other side of town, down a long dark 
D
avenue.
G                       C               G
But they can't keep the two of us apart long as you really 
D
love me.
G                     C                 G
I got the feelin' way down in my heart, that's the way it's 
D         F       C                            D
gonna be..you and me, babe..sure enough got to be, now.


CHORUS:
           G              E
Birds of a feather, la la la la la la la.
Am           D                        G
We should be together like birds of a feather..
           G              E
birds of a feather, la la la la la la la..
Am           D                        G              E
We should be together like birds of a feather, la la la 

la la la la..


OUTRO:
Am           D                        G              E
We should be together like birds of a feather, la la la 

la la la la..
A         D                        G              E
got to be together like birds of a feather, la la la 

la la la la..(Fade.)
