Little Bird
Written by Jerry Jeff Walker

Recently, when I was reading an old Cowpie newsletter, I read a request for
some Jerry Jeff Walker music, well here you go. I play this song with the
capo on the 5th fret.

G C G
LITTLE BIRD COME SIT UPON MY WINDOW SILL
C D
SAT THERE THROUGH THE FALLIN RAIN
G C
G
AND AS I WATCHED THAT LITTLE BIRD UPON MY WINDOW SILL
D G
I SAW MY THOUGHTS OF YOU GO BY AGAIN

CHORUS
C D
AND THE PICTURE OF MY FACE,
G Em
ON THE WINDOW PANE
C D G
IS IT TEARS OR IS IT RAIN

vs.2
I remember how we talked before you said goodbye
Too young to know the world outside our door
We laughed and we said that love was free like the birds that fly the wind
The rain today made me think of you once more

Chorus

vs. 3
No regrets about the past, see how young we were
The world was love and time was but a thought
But many things go many ways, many times but once
Your life is past and love was but a thought

Chorus

vs. 4
As my thoughts go tumblin’ back I wonder how you look
I wonder if you’ve seen that little bird
I wonder if he sat upon your window sill
I wonder if you’ll ever read these words

Chorus:

The picture of my face reflected on the pane
Is it tears or is it rain
