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.

This song made many millions of dollars in royalities alone for the writers Ben E King, Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller.

Ben E King had this song on the charts twice. Once in 1961 when it reached #1 and again in the 1980's when it reached #9. John Lennon covered the song in 1975 and Mickey Gilley did his version in 1980.

This song only has three chords in it and they are as follows:

  • G
  • C

For the rhythm on this one I'm playing it a little bit country because I'm adding the riff in under the rhythm. So my rhythm now becomes two downstrokes followed by the riff. I'm playing a muted down up down up where I'm not playing the riff section.

I have thrown in a picking break of my own arrangement as the song never had one in its original format. Feel free to leave it out if it does not fit for you.


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!

"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!


Gonna be all right - Gonna be all right - Gonna be all right
