The Birds Were Singing Of You chords - Carter Family


             	     

A  	  	  	  	 D
Last night the pale moon was shining
A 	  	  	  	     E7
Last night when all was still
A 	  	  	    D
I wandered alone in sadness
A 	  	 E7 	  	     A
Out among the woodland hills.

I heard the birds a-singing
Out among the trees and views
And every bird, my darling
Was singing, was singing of you.
 	  	  	  	    D 	  	  	  	  	   A
Chorus: 	 Was singing, singing of you, my love
 	  E7
 	   	 Was singing, was singing of you
 	  A 	  	  	  	  D
 	    	 And every bird, my darling
 	  A 	  	 E7 	  	    A
 	  	 Was singing, was singing of you.

I think of you in the daytime
I dream of you at night I wake and wish you were here, love, And tears are blinding my sight. The flowers that slumber so sweetly The stars above the blue Oh heaven itself, my darling Is thinking, is thinking of you. Chorus: Is thinking, is thinking of you, my love Is thinking, is thinking of you Oh heaven itself, my darling Is thinking, is thinking of you. I open my window so gently And look on the dreamy view The world itself, my darling Is sighing, is sighing for you. Chorus: Is sighing, is sighing for you, my love Is sighing, is sighing for you The world itself, my darling Is sighing, is sighing for you
