Subject: Lyr Add: BLUEBIRDS ARE SINGING FOR ME
From: Fortunato

Does anyone know who wrote this song? I've searched on HarryFox.com with no result.


BLUEBIRDS ARE SINGING FOR ME

1. 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 then, I know she always will.

CHORUS: There's a bluebird singing in the Blue Ridge Mountains.
It's calling me back to my home.
Oh, I can hear those bluebirds calling.
They're calling me back to my home.

2. Now I'm far from the Blue Ridge Mountains,
Far from my home back in the hills,
But I'm going back to the Blue Ridge Mountains.
These memories they haunt me still.

3. When I reached home, I was so lonely.
The one I loved had gone away.
That bad news came from her mother.
She's sleeping there beneath the clay.

Guest, I think and hope you're right, I've seen it credited to Lester Flatt and Mac Wiseman but Harry Fox doesn't list it. Thanks for your help.

Thanks, Guest. Neither BMI or ASCAP list it (as well as HarryFox) so I think The DEAD were right. We're having so much fun with it, I want to put it on our upcoming CD and, since everything else we do is Traditional and Public Domain, I was hoping this was as well.


Regards, Chance Shiver

Now HG, you KNOW you can almost always get tunes from somewhere!

I see this is an old, OLD request, but here it is anyway.

The song is from Malcolm "Mac" Wiseman, who by the way will be at the Ozark Folk Center on September 3 during our Tribute to Grandpa Jones.

My favorite version is by Ramona Jones and the Jones Family, but I don't know where I put that CD at the moment. I will offer up a very nice version I got off the radio, performers unknown, but probably Canadian.

PS. Don't forget The Autoharp Jamboree June 10-12. http://www.ozarkfolkcenter.com/events/default.asp?id=91 CHARLES WHITMER, TOM SCHROEDER, JUDY PAGTER, CATHY BRITELL, KAREN MUELLER, KAREN DANIELS, RON WALL , NEAL WALTERS, LUCILLE REILLY, & LINDSAY HAISLEY WITH SPECIAL GUEST PERFORMER: BRYAN BOWERS

ahhh Dale...you saw thru my laziness. I am excited about learning songs from this collection but I haven't put any work into researching it yet!

Bryan is here in Tallahassee before he goes to MV. Not at my house....I have had itinerant musician Charley Groth taking up my spare room. But I did get to hang out with Brayn and play for him and generally bask in his presence at the Florida Folk Festival. He is going to enjoy the rivers and springs before he come to MV. I did imagine myself hitching a ride with him and flying back. It's not out of the realm of possibility but so much of my time lately has been spent preparing my son to move west to school at the end of the summer....cheers, harpy

ooops, dale I got my other request mixed up with this one. I am also looking for the words to Suwanee Shore from the African-American collection at Brown University. Charley left the Bluebird song words and chords on my computer but I wanted to hear it performed somewhere...
