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

         C              Em                   Dm
    When I was young my heart was young then too
       G
    Anything that it would tell me,
                                  C
    that's the thing that I would do
        C               Em           Dm
    But now I feel such emptiness within
            G
    For the thing that I want most in life
                         C
    Is the thing I can't win


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


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

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