Be G neath this snowy Gmaj7 mantle cold and Am clean
The D7 unborn grass lies waiting for it's coat to turn to G green
The snowbird sings the Gmaj7 song he always Am sings
And D7 speaks to me of flowers that will bloom again in G spring.
When I was young, my heart was young then, too
Anything that it would tell me, thats' the thing that I would do
But now I feel such emptiness within
For the thing I want the most in life is the thing that I can't win.
Spread your tiny wings and fly away
And take the snow back with you where it came from on that day
The one I love forever is untrue
And if I could, you know that I would fly away with you.
The breeze along the river seems to say
That he'll only break my heart again should I decide to stay
So little snowbird take me with you when you go
To that land of gentle breezes where the peaceful waters flow.
Yea! D7 if I could you know that I would C fly ......
Am7 ..... away with G you.
