lyrics

Hey little birdie up in that tree
Why are you lookin’ at me?
You can see the tear in my eye
Though I’d like to I can’t cry

Leaves are fallin’ it’s colder each day
Why don’t you fly south and stay
Most of your family surely have flown
What makes you stay here alone

Fly here closer
Let me see you better
Something so familiar in your eyes

Some killer’s knife took Carrie’s life
She was soon to be my wife
I came out here ready to die
Then you happened to fly by

All of my sadness faded away
When you came to me today
I look at you but it’s her that I see
She has come to comfort me

Fly here closer
Let me see you better
Something so familiar in your eyes

Stay right here little birdie
Sing to me, sing to me
