Little Birds

This song is by Levon Helm and appears on the album Dirt Farmer (2007).

Little birds are singing all around me, on every bush and vine,
My pleasures would be doubled if I could call you mine.

As I've sat here the whole night through till now it's a breakin' day,
I'm awaitin' for an answer, kind lady what do you say?

If I could tell to you my mind, I would choose a single life,
For I would never thought that it suited for me to be your wife.

So he wrote to her an answer and he sent it by full speed,
"You know I once did love you dearly, I once loved you indeed.

"But since that time my mind has changed, I loved another way,
I love a pretty fair damsel more suitable for me"

And it had not been, but a very short time till this maiden's mind did change,
She wrote him a letter, "Kind sir I am ashamed,

"If ever I have slighted you, or ever done you wrong,
I am so far away from you that I can't hear you moan"

Little birds are singing all around me, on every bush and vine,
My pleasures would be doubled if I could call you mine;
My pleasures would be doubled if I could call you mine
