Marty Stuart Lyrics


            Capo 2

Intro: A

A
On a cool September mornin', in the fall of 2'03,
A                         E                A
A crier from Jerusalem brought the news to me.
      D7
His words were sharp and dreaded, and they made a lonesome sound,
           A
And they snapped my heart in two, like a stick stepped on the ground.
        E
And I cried and cried and cried, at the cutting of the pain,
      A                        E              A
And quietly said goodbye, so long in Jesus' name.

       G              A
Dark bird, watch you fly,
       G               A
Dark bird, to another sky.
          C                              D7
And I'll bet you were a sight, when you hit that cloud of love,
          A                          E         A
And flew out the other side, in the form of a dove.
A Dark bird, dark bird. Six feet one and a box of steel, in a pretty coat of black, Well I watched the world, watch themselves, watch your final act. And I couldn't help but notice, when they laid you in the earth, A train went by, headed north, for whatever it is worth. Your voice echoes in the wind, it rumbles through the trees, But after you've been everywhere, I guess it's time to leave. Dark bird, watch you fly, Dark bird, to another sky. And I'll bet you were a sight, when you hit that cloud of love, And flew out the other side, in the form of a dove. Dark bird, dark bird. G A Dark bird.
