Renata,

I don't know the chords, but here are the lyrics straight off the album cover.

Hummingbird

Introduction:

Oh, Hummingbird, mankind was waiting for you to come flying along,
Heavenly Songbird we were so wrong, we've harmed you,
Oh Hummingbird, lend us your wings,
Let us soar in the atmosphere of Abha,
"Lift us up to the Heaven of Holiness,
Oh Source of our being" -- Oh Hummingbird.

Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away (2)

The sweetness of your "Nectar",
Has drawn me like a fly,
I just love you, love you, love you,
I don't even know the reason why now.

Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away.(2)

Haven't you noticed the days somehow keep getting longer,
And the spirit-voices whisper in us all,
Haven't you noticed the rays,
The "Spirit Song" is stronger,
And a "New Day" is dawning for us all.

Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away.(2)

Alas here comes the "Gardner",
He's come to till the flowers,
The draught of understanding, wisdom, peace, and love is ours.

Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away. (2)

Don't fly away (2)

Lyrics by James Seals. Music by James Seals and Dash Crofts.

Enjoy the song!
