Snowbird Lyrics

Artist: Anne Murray


Snowbird
Anne Murray
Written by Gene MacLellan

Peaked at # 8 in 1970


Beneath this snowy mantle cold and clean
The unborn grass lies waiting for its coat to turn to green
The snowbird sings the song he always sings
And speaks to me of flowers that will bloom again in spring

When I was young my heart was young then, too
Anything that it would tell me, that's the thing that I would do
But now I feel such emptiness within
For the thing that I want most in life's the thing that I can't win

CHORUS
Spread your tiny wings and fly away
And take the snow back with you
Where it came from on that day
The one I love forever is untrue
And if I could you know that I would
Fly away with you

The breeze along the river seems to say
That he'll only break my heart again should I decide to stay
So, little snowbird, take me with you when you go
To that land of gentle breezes where the peaceful waters flow

CHORUS


Yeah, if I could I know that I would fl-y-y-y-y away with you

I heard Lynne Toner (McCutcheon) sing it live once in Napier New Zealand and she was awesome, better than the original, such a great feel-good song.

People, please.
The song is beautiful and Anne Murray did a wonderful job with it, as did Elvis Presley, but Anne Murray SINGS it she didn't WRITE it.
by Brett on 4/17/2011 4:22pm
The most beautiful suicide note ever written.

Snowbird was written by Gene MacLellan, not Anne Murray.

It was a suicide note.
by by Tony T 9/2/12 on 9/1/2012 11:27pm
Excellent song by A.Murray always brings me joy.

It speaks to more than just the Canadian whimsical 'Snowbirds' who migrate down to warmer climes each winter. It speaks to everyone whose loved one went astray. For whatever reason. And it's both sad, decisive and bitter-sweet.
by Spuring Plover on 9/22/2012 5:12pm
They did it ona episode of THE MUPPET SHOW and at the end this big funny bird appeared and talked about developing the area and joked about a CONDORMINUIM
by BILL`LEE on 1/18/2013 3:38pm
A REAL`good`EXPLANATION`OF`WHAT.
by Peter Griffin on 2/17/2013 8:55pm
Hey, she's on "Family Guy" tonight playing herself and singing "Snowbird".
by Alysa on 2/19/2013 3:04am
Lmao! I just watched that episode and I had to look up the lyrics. I found it even more amusing when I read the post by Peter Griffin. Hysterical, it totally made my night. :D
by Rae on 2/24/2013 11:44am
I decided to decide for myself what the lyrical meant, and I go with Brian and Stewie. They were both right.
by Fraser on 3/3/2013 1:22am
It's a beautiful song. I'd never heard of Anne Murray before that Family Guy episode. It'll probably introduce a lot of people to her, which is great because she's a very talented singer. As to the interpretation of the lyrics: who knows? Not even Anne apparently!

by John Gallant on 12/23/2013 4:34pm
This song was written by a fellow I once knew, and his name was Gene MacLellan. He lived not far from me on Prince Edward Island. Anne Murray knew and loved him also. He was a very special man.
