*Note: I only had the patience to tab out the intro riff, you will have to figure out 
between-verse interludes on your own, unless I come back and get them later!

Verse 1 chords:
            D
The fairest bloom the mountain knows
                         D7
Is not an iris or a wild rose
                G                     D
But the little flower of which I'll tell
               A         D
Known as the brave acony bell


Verse 2: (use verse 1 chords)
Just a simple flower so small and plain
With a pearly hue and a little known name
But the yellow birds sing when they see it bloom
For they know that spring is coming soon


Verse 3: (use verse 1 chords)
Well it makes its home mid the rocks and the rills
Where the snows lie deep on the windy hills
And it tells the world "Why should I wait
This ice and snow is gonna melt away."

Outro verse:
            G                       D
And so I'll sing that yellow bird's song
                 A                  D [play intro riff]
For the troubled times will soon be gone
