Elvis Presley – Snowbird lyrics

(words & music by gene maclellan)
Beneath this snowy mantle cold and clean
The unborn grass lies waiting
For it's coat to turn to green
The snowbird sings a 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 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 shell 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
