"Bird Dog" is a song written by Boudleaux Bryant and recorded by the Everly Brothers.[1] It was released in 1958 and was a #1 hit on the Billboard Country Chart.[2] The song also hit number two on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 as well as peaking at number two for three weeks on the R&B charts.[3]

The song deals with the singer's dismay that a boy by the name of Johnny is trying to take his girlfriend away. The singer calls him a bird dog as a result of his actions.

The musical structure is relatively unusual in that it has a 12 bar blues stanza and an 8 bar blues chorus.
