There's a high flyin' bird, way up in the sky
And I wonder does she looks down, as she flies 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
(I'm 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 them sit-down, can't fly
Oh Lord I'm gonna die blues
(I'm gonna die blues)

Now I once knew a man
He worked in a mine
Well he never saw the sun
But then he never stopped tryin'

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 die and the only way to fly was to die

Lord I'm gonna die blues
Lord I'm gonna die blues
Lord I'm gonna die blues

There's a high flyin' bird, way up in the sky
I wonder does she looks down as she flies on by
Just ridin' so free and easy in the sky

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

I know I'm gonna die blues
Oh I'm gonna die blues
Gonna die blues
Gonna die blues
