Birds And Children Fly Away Recorded by Cal Smith written by Daniel Hoffman and Ray Pennington
G C D7 G I stood with mom and poppa as the bus pulled in that day C G D7 To take me from my childhood to a man G C D7 G I believe it was the first time I saw either of them cry C D7 G As momma held on tight to daddy’s hand
C D7 G Momma handed me a sandwich and some money she had saved C G D7 And whispered that she knew I’d be a good man G C D7 G She gently smiled and told me that momma’s always know C D7 G The only way to come back is to go
D7 C G And birds and children fly away like clouds on a windy day C G D7 And there’s usually a rainbow after the rain C G Birds and children fly away that’s the Master’s plan you know C G D7 Children are God’s gift to make love grow
And I can still hear poppa say G Don’t cry momma birds and children fly away
C D7 G A thousand thoughts flashed through me as I watched them wave goodbye C G D7 How they taught me to fish and love and pray G C D7 G I gave the man my ticket heard poppa gently say C D7 G Don’t cry momma cause birds and children they just fly away
