Three Little Birds Guitar Lesson 
By Bob Marley

Here on my Three Little Birds Guitar Lesson page I'll show you how I play this one on the acoustic guitar.

Bob Marley used to observe nature and write about what he observed and this song came from his observation of watching three little birds. This song and can be found on their 1977 album entitled Exodus. It went to #17 in the UK. It's often known also as Dont Worry Bout A Thing as well as Every Little Thing Is Gonna Be Alright.

Bob would often refer to his three female backup singers as his three little birds.

Three Little Birds Lyrics


"Don't worry - about a thing
'Cause every little thing - gonna be all right
Singin': "Don't worry - about a thing
'Cause every little thing - gonna be all right!

Rise up this mornin', - Smile with the risin' sun
Three little birds - Pitch by my doorstep
Singin' sweet songs - Of melodies pure and true
Sayin', ("This is my message to you-ou-ou: ")

"Don't worry - about a thing
'Cause every little thing - gonna be all right
Singin': "Don't worry - about a thing
'Cause every little thing - gonna be all right!

"Don't worry - about a thing
'Cause every little thing - gonna be all right
Singin': "Don't worry - about a thing
'Cause every little thing - gonna be all right!

Rise up this mornin', - Smile with the risin' sun
Three little birds - Pitch by my doorstep
Singin' sweet songs - Of melodies pure and true
Sayin', ("This is my message to you-ou-ou: ")

"Don't worry - about a thing
'Cause every little thing - gonna be all right
Singin': "Don't worry - about a thing
'Cause every little thing - gonna be all right!
