Glad bluebird of happiness


C E
I was walking down the road, not caring much where I was going
d G C
A heavy pack upon my back, burly good with inner sad of lonliness
C E
When fluttered by this bird of blue, he said I´ll tell you what I ´ll do
d G G7>>
Since you seem to be so sad, I will try and be your glad..
C
Bluebird of happiness

F C
And he goes flying, far over the ocean blue,
G C
Bound for places, I am not known to.


C E
I decided to follow him, my thoughts have faded dim since then
d G
Blown foggy by the wind a paced,as from shore to shore we race,
C
Move from place to place
E
The moon is hot, the stars are cold. I´ve been there, that's how I know
d
I´ve touched the desert sunsets coat
G G7>> C
Placed to dove the melted snows of Kilimanjaro

F C
And he goes flying, far over the ocean blue,
G C
Found the places, I am not known to.


C E
I´ll follow that bird untill he dies and when he does then so will I,
d G
I know I ´ll never be the same, LiFe to me is bound to change
C
When that ends the chase
C E
I lift his body from the sea, let him dry in a trade wind breeze
d G G7>>>
Find some merry christmas views, wrap them up and give them to you
G4 C
My bluebird of happiness

F C
And he goes flying, far over the ocean blue,
G C
Found the places, I am not known to.
