Be- [G] neath it's snowy [Bm] mantle cold and [Am] clean | [Am]
The [D7] unborn grass lies | waiting for its | coat to turn to [G] green
The [G] snowbird sings the [Bm] song he always [Am] sings |
And | [D7] speaks to me of | flowers that will | bloom again in [G] spring

When [G] I was young my [Bm] heart was young then [Am] too | [Am]
And any [D7] thing that it would | tell me that's the | thing that I would [G] do
But [G] now I feel such [Bm] emptiness with- [Am] in | [Am]
For the [D7] thing that I want | most in life's the | thing that I can't [G] win

[G] Spread your tiny [Bm] wings and fly a- [Am] way | [Am]
And [D7] take the snow back | with you where it | came from on that [G] day
The [G] one I love for- [Bm] ever is un- [Am] true | [Am]
And [D7] if I could you | know that I would | fly away with [G] you

The [G] breeze along the [Bm] river seems to [Am] say | [Am]
That he'll [D7] only break my | heart again should | I decide to [G] stay
So little [G] snowbird take me [Bm] with you when you [Am] go | [Am]
To that [D7] land of gentle | breezes where the | peaceful waters [G] flow

[G] Spread your tiny [Bm] wings and fly a- [Am] way | [Am]
And [D7] take the snow back | with you where it | came from on that [G] day
The [G] one I love for- [Bm] ever is un- [Am] true | [Am]
And [D7] if I could you | know that I would | fly away with [G] you

Yeah [D7] if I could you | know that I would [Am] fly ...   | [Am]
[D7] away with [G] you | [G] | [G] | [G↓]
