Intro:    C     F     G     C

                G              C                      G                  C  C7
Yellow bird, up high in banana tree; yellow bird, you sit all alone like me.

F                     C                    G                C
Did your lady friend, leave de nest again, oh how very sad, make me feel so bad;
F                 C                G                     C
You can fly away, in the sky away,    you more lucky dan me.

                G              C                      G                  C  
Yellow bird, up high in banana tree; yellow bird, you sit all alone like me.

              G                              C
I also have a pretty gal, she not with me, today;
                    F           G                              C
Dey all de same, de pretty gal, de leave de nest; den they fly away.

                G              C                      G                  C    C7
Yellow bird, up high in banana tree; yellow bird, you sit all alone like me.

F                      C                  G                       C                         
Black and yellow, you, like banana, too;     you better fly away, in the sky away;
F                       C                        G                           C
The Picker coming soon, pick from night to noon;     they might pick you someday,

                     F            G                     C
I Wish that I were a yellow bird, I could fly away with you;
C              F            (No Chords)     G               C
But I am not a yellow bird, so, here I sit, nothing else to do.


Outro:
C                                    F     C
Yellow bird,    yellow bird,      ye…ll…ow bird..     (Fading)
