Pretty Bird (Main Song Page)
2017
2.23
2/23/2017 alternate lyrics

Dave sings this as the first verse of the song. It's not from the original Hazel Dickens version, and it seems as if Dave may have written/improvised it himself.

When you were born [???]
quenched your thirst along the stream
and you learned to listen to the whispering wind
and keep that with you like a dream
Pretty Bird
main lyrics
Fly away, little pretty bird
fly, fly far away
fly away, little pretty bird
and pretty you will always stay

Love's own tender flame warms this meeting
and love's tender song you sing
but fly away, little pretty bird
and pretty you will always stay

I cannot make you no promise
for love is such a delicate thing
but fly away, little pretty bird
and pretty you will always stay
and pretty you will always

Fly away, little pretty bird
fly, fly far away
fly away, little pretty bird
and pretty you will always stay
and pretty you will always
