INTRO
                 2/4
| C Em | Dm | G | G | C |  


VERSE
  C               Em              Dm
Beyond this snowy mantle cold and clean
    G                                                 C
The unborn grass lies waiting for its coat to turn to green
    C                  Em              Dm
The snowbird sings the songs he always sings
    G                                                  C
And speaks to me of flowers that will bloom again in spring


VERSE
     C              Em                  Dm
When I was young my heart was young and true
   G                                                         C
Anything that it would tell me that’s the thing that I would do
    C               Em            Dm
But now I feel such emptiness within
        G                                                       C
For the thing that I want most in life’s the thing that I can’t win


CHORUS
C                Em             Dm
Spread your tiny wings and fly away
    G
And take the snow back with you 
         G                  C
Where it came from on that day
C              Em        Dm
When a love forever is untrue
    G                                               C
And if I could, you know that I would fly away with you


VERSE
    C                Em             Dm
The breeze along the river seems to say
            G                                            C
That you’ll only break my heart again should I decide to stay
          C                Em                Dm
So little snowbird take me with you when you go
        G                                                C
To that land of gentle breezes where the peaceful waters flow


CHORUS
  C               Em             Dm
Spread your tiny wings and fly away
    G
And take the snow back with you 
         G                  C
Where it came from on that day
C              Em        Dm
When a love forever is untrue
    G                                               C
And if I could, you know that I would fly away with you


CODA                                                             2/4
      G                                F          Dm        | C | C | C
Yeah, if I could you know that I would fly-y-y-y-y away with you
