There's a high flyin' bird way up in the sky
And I wonder if she look down as she goes on by
Just floatin' so free and easy in the sky.

Oh, look at me here
I'm just rooted like a tree here
I got them sit down, can't fly
Oh Lord, I'm gonna die blues, gonna die blues.

Well, the sun comes along and she lights up the day
And then when she gets tired, she just flies along on her way
From the East to the West she goes down every day.

But look at me here
I'm just rooted like a tree here
I got those sit-down, can't cry
Oh Lord, I'm gonna die blues, oh I'm gonna die blues.

Well, I once knew a man, he worked in a mine
Well, he never saw the sun but then he never stopped tryin'
And then one day that old man he up and he died, yeah he up and he died, he
Up and he died.
Well, he wanted to fly and the only way to fly was to die, Lord I'm gonna
Die
Lord I'm gonna die, Lord I'm gonna die.

There's a high flyin' bird way up in the sky
I wonder if she look down as she flies on by
Just floatin' so free and easy in the sky.

Look at me here
I'm just rooted like a tree here
I got them sit down, can't fly
Oh Lord, I'm gonna die blues, Lord, I'm gonna die blues
I know I'm gonna die, I'm gonna die
