Subject: Chord Req: Cock a Doodle
From: clueless don
Date: 26 Oct 07 - 09:04 AM

Hi! I have been enjoying a song called "Cock a Doodle", recorded by Eamonn Coyne and Kris Drever on their "Honk Toot Suite" album. The words are (at least approximately)

Oh, Cock a Doodle
I'm off my noodle
I'm done with wearing a frown!
My baby's back...
my baby's back!
Oh, Cock a Doodle
I'm off my noodle
my arms will soon be 'round
my baby's back ...
my baby's back!
How I missed her, missed her
when she went away.
Gonna kiss her, kiss her
more 'n more everyday!
Cock a Doodle
I'm off my noodle
I'm done with dressing in black!
My baby's back ...
my baby's back!

I would love to learn chords for this song. The arrangement as played by Eamonn and Kris (as if I knew them enough to call them by their first names!) has a similar feel, to my ear, to Jesse Fuller's "San Francisco Bay Blues". There is a mudcat thread discussing the chords for that song here , and I will see if I can adapt those chords to Cock a Doodle. But does anyone else actually know Cock a Doodle, and can provide chords? Many thanks!

Don

The title seems to be

"Cock-A-Doodle, I'm Off My Noodle"

That may help with searches. In a hurry just now.

I haven't heard the whole thing, but from a sample I found the chord progression sounds quite simple. Try I - V - IV - I - V7 - I.
So in C it would be:

Oh, [C]Cock a Doodle
I'm [G]off my noodle
I'm [F]done with wearing a [C]frown!
My baby's [G7]back...
my baby's [C]back!

There wasn't enough of the middle 8 to get the full tune, but it probably goes to VIminor (then IV - III7)

In C, try permutations on Am, F, E7

Hope this gets you going

I think its best to always keep your doodle cocked......and your cock well doodled for that matter.

From the sheet music which is visible in this video at YouTube:


COCK-A-DOODLE, I'M OFF MY NOODLE (MY BABY'S BACK)
Words & music by by Howard E Johnson, Al Sherman & Charles Tobias, ©1926.

I was blue, broken hearted,
Oh, so blue, when we parted,
Never though my baby'd go away.
Skies were gray; now they're lighter,
And today, things are brighter.
I feel just like shouting, shouting hooray!

Cock-a-doodle! I'm off my noodle; I'm through with wearing a frown.
My baby's back; my baby's back.
Cock-a-doodle! I'm off my noodle, and soon my arms will be 'round
My baby's back, my baby's back.
I've made my mind up, mind up, we were all though before,
But now I'll wind up, wind up, loving her more and more.
Cock-a-doodle! I'm off my noodle; I'm all though dressing in black,
'Cause baby's back; my baby's back.

Cock-a-doodle! I'm off my noodle; I'm simply walking on air.
My baby's back; my baby's back.
Cock-a-doodle! We'll bill and coodle; I've bought a new morris chair
For baby's back, my baby's back.
Oh, how I missed her, missed her, while she was far away!
I longed to kiss her, kiss her, more and more ev'ry day.
Cock-a-doodle! I'm off my noodle; I'm making up for it now.
My baby's back; my baby's back.

Cock-a-doodle! I'm off my noodle; I'm through with wearing a frown.
My baby's back; my baby's back.
Cock-a-doodle! I'll spend a boodle and buy a beautiful gown
For baby's back, my baby's back.
Oh, how I love her, love her, face is so cute and round.
There's so much of her, of her, only three hundred pounds!
And when we go to a movie show, you know, all that people can see
Is baby's back, my baby's back.
