Intro G  C  G

You came with the season, as the first swallow sang
A brown headed stranger, with a five-letter name
     C      Am       G
Doo-doo doo-doo doo-doo

We planted our kisses where the wild berries grow 
my feet sprouted wings and I flew all the way home 
     C      Am        G
Doo-doo doo-doo  doo-doo

     Em(v2)         C(v2)        G
My cheeks red like fire engines racing 
   Em(v2)        C(v2)        G
straight to the heat of your skin
       Em(v2)            C(v2)
and I know our days are numbered, 
       G           C
early bird of the summer
            G                 D      G 
you'll fly south just as the fall begins

The leaves changed their colors and the schoolyards were filled
My coat with the patches barely keeps out the chill 
     C      Am        G
Doo-doo doo-doo  doo-doo

You sent me a postcard from a town out of state, 
I wish it were warmer and I hope you're the same
     C      Am        G
Doo-doo doo-doo  doo-doo

     Em(v2)          C(v2)         G
The fields where we wandered were golden
Em(v2)    C(v2)    G
Now only muddy my boots
      Em(v2)         C(v2)
and I know I should recover,
          G           C
you're a bird of the summer,
       G                D       G 
I was wrong to try and capture you

G C G (2x)

Em(v2), D(v2), Am(v2), C, G, C
Em(v2), D(v2), Am(v2), C, G, C

C, D, G (2x)

I met someone walking and I parked by the lake
It don’t fly like we did but it don’t fly away
     C      Am        G
Doo-doo doo-doo  doo-doo

 Em(v2)     C(v2)         G
Gone is the pale hand of winter
 Em(v2)      C(v2)          G
Here is the first flush of May
     Em(v2)        C(v2)         
And soon I will discover
          G           C 
whether birds of the summer
        G               D    G 
fly in circles or just fly away
