Well my throat was dry and it was getting late
When this guy with this bird on his shoulder walked through the door
Sir this bird of mine can sing
Well I kinda looked at the guy and said oh really
When the bird started singing I almost fell in the floor
Whisky River take my mind
Whisky River don't run dry

I thought son what a heck of a thing
And I could feel this wild idea coming on strong
And I'd probably blow it on beer anyway

They placed a wreath upon his door
He stopped loving her today
I said well that does it sir
Five hundred dollars to take him off your hands
And he handed me the bird and he said good night

That the money would soon be pouring in
Well then it hit me and I got boiling made
And as he flew off into the night he was singing this song
On the road again
Somebody stop that bird
I can't wait to get on the road again
My bird
I find love is making money with my friends
Somebody give me a B B gun
I want that bird
This is for the birds
