The Bluebirds Are Singing For Me

There was a girl I loved so dearly
She lived away back in the hills
When the bluebird sings I miss my darling
She loved me I know she always will

   There’s a bluebird singing (bluebird singing)
   In the Blue Ridge Mountains (Blue Ridge Mountains)
   Calling me back to my home
   Oh I can hear (I can hear)
   Those bluebirds calling
   Calling me back to my home

When I reached my home I was oh so lonely
The one I loved had gone away
That sad news came from her mother
She’s sleeping there beneath the clay

Now tonight I’m far from the Blue Ridge Mountains
Far from my home back in the hills
I’m going back to the Blue Ridge Mountains
These memories they haunt me still
