[Verse 1]
Dm                 Bb
Sometimes I get im-patient 
        Dm               G7
but she cools me without words 
        Dm                 Eb9
and she comes so sweet and softly 
   Bb              A7
my hummingbird and have you heard
       Dm                  Bb 
that I thought my life had ended
      Dm                     G7 
but I find that it's just be-gun 
          Dm
cause she gets me where I live 
          Eb9
I'll give all I have to give 
    Bb                 Bb/C    Fsus F
I'm talking about that humming-bird 


[Chorus]
         Bb                      F/A
oh she's little and she loves me 
             C/G      F    
too much for words to say 
       C/E            Eb      D
when I see her in the morning sleeping 
      Bb                      F/A
she's little and she loves me 
      C/G   F
to my lucky day
            F/G        Bb/C  C  A7 
hummingbird don't fly away 


[Verse 2]
         Dm               Bb
When I'm feeling wild and lonesome
    Dm                 G7 
she knows the words to say
        Dm                      Eb9   
and she gives me a little under-standing 
       Bb
in her special way 
           A7
and I just have to say 
      Dm             Bb
in my life I loved a woman
              Dm             G7 
because she's more than I de-serve 
        Dm
and she gets me where I live 
          Eb
I'll give all I have to give 
    Bb                 Bb/C    F
I'm talking about that humming-bird 


[Chorus]
         Bb                       F/A
oh she's little and she loves me 
             C/G      F                      
too much for words to say
       C/E            Eb      D      
when I see her in the morning sleeping
      Bb                       F/A 
she's little and she loves me 
       C/G  F
to my lucky day
             F/G         Bb/C  C 
hummingbird don't fly away


[Coda (repeat and fade)]
           Bb    F    C
Don’t fly away – ay - away
