     A5
You came with the season, as the first swallow sang
A brown headed stranger, with a five-letter name
    D5 B5 A5
dooodoodoo

     A5
We planted our kisses where the wild berries grow 
my feet sprouted wings and I flew all the way home 
   D5 B5 A5
dooodoodoo

     F#5            D5            A5
My cheeks red like fire engines racing 
   F#5           D5             A5
straight to the heat of your skin
        F#5              D5
and I know our days are numbered, 
       A5           D5
early bird of the summer
            A5                 E5      A5 
you'll fly south just as the fall begins

     A5
The leaves changed their colors and the schoolyards were filled
My coat with the patches barely keeps out the chill 
   D5 B5 A5
dooodoodoo

     A5
You sent me a postcard from a town out of state, 
I wish it were warmer and I hope you're the same
   D5 B5 A5
dooodoodoo

     F#5             D5             A5
The fields where we wandered were golden
    F#5   D5        A5
Now only muddy my boots
        F#5            D5 
and I know I should recover,
          A5           D5 
you're a bird of the summer,
        A5               E5       A5 
I was wrong to try and capture you

 F#5         D5            A5
Gone is the pale hand of winter
 F#5         D5              A5
Here is the first flush of may
     F#5            D5
And soon I will discover
         A5            D5 
whether birds of the summer
        A5                E5   A5 
fly in circles or just fly away
