My Songbird
Recorded by Emmylou Harris
Written by Jesse Winchester

C F C G7 C
Songbird in a golden cage she'd prefer the blue
F C G7 C F C
How I crave the liquor of her song
F C G7 C
Poor bird who has done no harm what harm could she do
F C G7 C
She shall be my prisoner her life long

F C
My songbird wants her freedom
F C
Now don't you think I know
F C F C Am G7
But I can't find it in myself to let my songbird go
F G7 C
I just can't let her go

F C G7 C
Oh Lord when your jeweler's eye peers into my soul
F C G7 C
Oh Lord I am overcome with shame
F C G7 C
Take me Lord and purify heal me with a word
F C G7 C
Lord I beg a gift I dare not claim

F C
My songbird wants her freedom
F C
Now don't you think I know
F C F C Am G7
But I can't find it in myself to let my songbird go
F G7 C
I just can't let her go
