snowbird lyrics – wanda jackson

snowbird
writer gene maclellan

beneath this snowy mantle cold and clean
the unborn gr*ss lies waiting for its coat to turn to green
the snowbird sings the song he always sings
and speaks to me of flowers that will bloom again in spring
when i was young my heart was young then too
anything that it would tell me that’s the thing that i would do
but now i feel such emptiness within
for the thing that i want 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 it with you when you go
to that land of gentle breezes where the peaceful waters flow
spread your tiny wings…
and if i could you know that i would fly away with you
