High Flying Bird

This song is by Jefferson Airplane and appears on the 2003 CD reissue of Takes Off (1966).

There's a high flying bird way up in the sky now
Yes, and I wonder if she looks down as she flies on by
Well, she's riding on the air so easy in the sky
Lord, look at me (yeah)
I'm rooted like a tree (Oh yeah, yes, I am now)
I've got to sit down, can't cry, oh Lord, I'm gonna die blues

Oh, when I used to love a man, he worked in a mine, Lord
Oh, well, he never saw the sun but he never stopped trying
Oh, then one day my man, he up and died
My man up and died, Lord
My man up and died, Lord (Yes, he did)
Well, he wanted to fly and the only way to fly was to die

There's a high flyin' bird, way up in the sky, now
And, yes, I wonder if she looks down as she flies on by
Well, she's riding on the air so easy in the sky
Hey, lord look at me (Yeah)
I'm rooted like a tree (Hey, yes, I am now)
I've got to sit down, can't cry, oh Lord, I'm gonna die blues
(Yeah, I'm gonna die now)
I've got to sit down, can't cry, oh Lord, I'm gonna die blues
(Yes I am, yes I am).
