Golden Bird

Levon Helm

Tom: E
verse 1  
E        C#m        A6          E 
Walking along on a path in the mountains 
E       C#m         E      B7 
I saw a bird flying way up high 
E             C#m           A           E 
Gold were its wings in that time of the morning 
D           E          D    A           E 
Flashing at me as they flew through the sky 

verse 2 
E        C#m        A6          E 
Its beauty was such that I felt I must have it 
E       C#m         E      B7 
Chased it all day, nearly entered the night 
E             C#m           A           E 
Finally angered that I couldn't catch it, 
D           E          D    A           E 
Determined I would stop it in flight 

verse 3 
E        C#m        A6          E 
I found a stone by a mountain stream flowing 
E       C#m         E      B7 
Rounded and smooth by the waters fast flow 
E             C#m           A           E 
It felt so warm and alive in my hand 
D           E          D    A           E 
It was an arrow, my arm was the bow. 

verse 4 
E        C#m        A6          E 
Then a flashing of wings and a cry pierced the air 
E       C#m         E      B7 
It fluttered and it fell on the rocks at my feet 
E             C#m           A           E 
Weeping It left it, the thing that had fallen 
D           E          D    A           E 
Blood stained my hands and tears wet my cheeks 

verse 5  
E        C#m        A6          E 
Later that night as I lay in my bed 
E       C#m         E      B7 
I heard the sound of wings in the air 
E             C#m           A           E 
The room became bathed in a warm golden glow 
D           E          D    A           E 
I opened my eyes and a woman stood there 

verse 6 
E        C#m        A6          E 
Didn't you know when you hurt me so cruelly 
E       C#m         E      B7 
I was your love, I was your friend 
E             C#m           A           E 
You couldn't stand it that I was so free 
D           E          D    A           E 
Now you will never see me again
