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
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
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

Repeat #3
