    Lyrics

    (Gene McLellan)

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

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

    Spread your tiny wings and fly away
    And take the snow back with you where you found it on that day
    The one I love forever is untrue
    And if I could you know that I would fly away with you.

    --- Instrumental ---

    The breeze along the river seems to say
    He'll only break my heart again should I decide to stay
    Little snowbird take me with you when you go
    To that land of gentle breezes where the peaceful waters flow.

    Yes, spread your tiny wings and fly away
    And take the snow back with you where you found it on that day
    The one I love forever is untrue
    And if I could you know that I would fly away with you.

    Yes, if I could you know that I would fly away with you...
