High Flyin' Bird Lyrics

There's a high flyin' bird way up in the sky
And I wonder if she looks down on me as she flies on by?
While she's riding so free and easy in the sky

But look at me here
Lord, I'm just rooted like a tree here
And I got the sit-down-can't fly, oh Lord I'm gonna die blues

Well the sun comes along and it lights up the day
Well it brings the daytime and it goes on it's way
From the East to the West it travels every day

But look at me here
Lord, I'm just rooted like a tree here
And I got the sit-down-can't fly, oh Lord I'm gonna die blues

Well I once knew a man
He worked down in the mine,
Well he never saw the sun and he never stopped crying
Then one day his woman up and died
She just upped and died
You know she just upped and dies
Well, she wanted to fly
The only way to fly was to die
There's a high flyin' bird way up in the sky
And I wonder if she looks down as she flies on by?
While she's riding so easy in the sky

But look at me here
Lord, I'm just rooted like a tree here
And I got the sit-down-can't fly, oh Lord I'm gonna die blues
