Della Mae – Bluebird Blackbird lyrics
Bluebird, bluebird, sittin' in a tree
Go and find my true love wherever she may be
Blackbird, blackbird, travel far and wide
Let her know that she should be forever by my side

[Chorus]
I'm gonna put my heart inside a boat, sail it way out west
Send it far away to find the one I love the best
The one I love the best
And then I'll sew a net of golden thread, throw it out to sea
Catch the one I love the best and bring her home to me
Bring her home to me

[Verse 2]
Oak tree, oak tree, standing up so tall
If I can't have the one I love, I won't have none at all
Acorn, acorn, fall off of that tree
Whisper in my true love's ear that she's the one for me

[Chorus]
I'm gonna put my heart inside a boat, sail it way out west
Send it far away to find the one I love the best
The one I love the best
And then I'll sew a net of golden thread, throw it out to sea
Catch the one I love the best and bring her home to me
Bring her home to me

[Verse 3]
Squirt gun, squirt gun, underneath my arm
Go and tell my true love I won't do her any harm
Fiddle, fiddle, resin up your bow
Play for her the sweetest song, the sweetest song you know

[Chorus]
I'm gonna put my heart inside a boat, sail it way out west
Send it far away to find the one I love the best
The one I love the best
And then I'll sew a net of golden thread, throw it out to sea
Catch the one I love the best and bring her home to me
Bring her home to me
