BLUEBIRD- Buffalo Springfield


G      G/B        D
Listen to my bluebird laugh
G         G/B       D
She can't tell you why
 G      G/B       D
Deep within her heart you see
 C   G/B         D     C G/B       D    C G/B  D
She knows only cryin',      just cryin',      yeah

There she sits, a lofty perch
Strangest color blue
Flying is forgotten now
She thinks only of you, just you, awww

So get all those blues, must be a thousand hues
                                        C  G/B
And each is differently used, you just know
You sit there mesmorized by the depth of her eyes
                                  C  G/B
If you could catagorize, she got soul
          C G/B        C G/B         D
She got soul, she got soul, she got soul


RIFF 2 (during lyrics)
Do you think she loves you
Do you think at all?

SOLO   (stop, RIFF 3, stop again, begin with banjo)

Soon she's going to fly away
Sadness is her own
Fill herself a bath of tears
And go home, and go home

RIFF 1:                              RIFF 2:
                                     (bass notes with playing D)
D ---0--0--0--0---------------------  ----------------|
B --0--0--0--0----------------------  ----------------|

D -----------------------3p0---0----  -0------------0-|
A ---------------------------3------  -------0h3--3---|
D ----------------------------------  ---0------------|

RIFF 3:                    (strum)
D -0-----------0-------------0-------|

NOTE:  This is very rough.  Any improvements are welcome.  It's not
immediately obvious that the song is in DADGBD, but I read Crosby
mentioning that as an aside in an interview.  I didn't include the chords
because I'm not at all sure about the figurings, there being so many
slightly different ways to play D, G and so forth.  There are so many
overdubbed guitars it's hard to tell what's going on.
