(G)

Transpose


1.

|G / / / |Am / / / Be-neath the snowy mantle cold and clean, |D / / The unborn grass lies waiting, / |/ / |G / / / For its coat to turn to green, |G / / / |Am / / / The snowbird sings the song he always sings, |D / / And speaks to me of flowers, / |D / |G / / / | That will bloom a-gain in spring.

2.

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 I can't win.

chorus:

G / / / |Am / / / Spread your tiny wings and fly a-way, |D / / And take the snow back with you / |/ / |G / / / Where it came from on that day, |G / / / |Am / / / The one I love for-ever is un-true, |D / / / | And if I could you know that I would / / |G / / / | Fly a-way with you.

3.

The breeze along the river seems to say, That she'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.

chorus:

coda:

|D / / / And if I could you know that I would, C / / / / / |G / / / |/ / / -| Fly-y-y-y-y a-way with you.
