Driscoll Lyr/Chord Req: High Flying Bird (Billy Ed Wheeler) (18) Lyr Add: HIGH FLYING BIRD (from Carolyn Hester) 07 Apr 99


Have a version of "High Flying Bird" on an old record by Carolyn Hester, circa 1965. One of my favorites. By Billy Edd Wheeler. Think its about same as the Henske version. If you have chords to song, please post.

There's a high flying bird way up in the sky
And I wonder does he looks down as he flys on by
He's a riding on the air so easy in the sky
Well Lord look at me here, I'm rooted like a tree here
I got the sit down, I can't cry
Oh Lord I'm gonna die blues

Now the sun comes along, oh Lord it lights up the day
And when he gets tired he flys on over the way
Oh its east to the west and he gets gone every day
Well Lord look at me here, I'm rooted like a tree here
I got the sit down, I can't cry
Oh Lord I'm gonna die blues


I had a man and he lived in a mine
Now he never saw the sun but he never stopped trying
And then one day my man up and died
I said my man up and died, yes my man up and died
Well he wanted to fly
And the only way to fly was to die


repeat first verse
