Glad Bluebird Of Happiness

This song is by Joan Baez and appears on the album David's Album (1969).

I was walking down the road
Not caring much where I was going
A heavy pack upon my back
My worldly goods within a sack of loneliness

When fluttered by this bird of blue
He said, "I'll tell you what I'll do
Since you seem to be so sad
I will try and be your glad
Bluebird of happiness"

And he goes flying over the ocean blue
Bound for places I'm not known to

I decided to follow him
My thoughts have faded dim since then
Blown foggy by the wind apace
As passing shore to shore we race
Move from place to place

The moon is hot, the stars are cold
I've been there, that's how I know
I've touched the desert sunset's coat
Tasted of the melted snows of Kilimanjaro

And he goes flying over the ocean blue
Bound for places I'm not known to

I'll follow that bird until he dies
And when he does then so will I
I know I'll never be the same
Life to me is bound to change
When death ends the chase

I'll lift his body from the sea
Pet him dry in a trade wind breeze
Find some merry christmas hues
Wrap him up and give him to you
My bluebird of happiness

And he goes flying over the ocean blue
Bound for places I'm not known to
