Hello canary bird, this is a letter home
Hello canary bird, this is a letter home
Well you know I want you to fly the whole world over
And find how my baby been gettin' along

Well canary bird, when you get to Clarksdale
Please fly down on Second Street
Yes canary bird when you get to Clarksdale
Please fly down on Second Street
Well you know I don't want you to stop flyin'
Until you take the letter out to Stovall for me

Fly on, canary bird, fly on!

On your way back home, please stop by Memphis a while
Yes on your way back home, please stop by Memphis a while
Well canary bird I want you to stroll down Beale Street
And see can you see my little old angel child
