You could try e-mailing The Kittyhawks on their website, this is one that's in their repertoire.

Lyrics copied from Whole Wheat Radio and then edited by me to agree with the video at YouTube.

LITTLE BIRD OF HEAVEN
Martha Scanlan

1. I let out from your back door,
Kicked an old can fifty miles or more.
Written right there on the side of the can:
"Little bird of heaven right here in your hand."

2. I looked up and I looked back,
Walked a hundred miles on the railroad track.
Alls I can tell from where I stand:
Little bird of heaven right here in my hand.

3. Love, they tell me, is a fragile thing.
It's hard to fly on broken wings.
I lost my ticket to the Promised Land.
Little bird of heaven right here in my hand.

4. So toss it up and pass it around.
Pay mind to what you're carryin' round.
Keep it close. Hold it while you can.
Little bird of heaven right here in your hand.

5. Fallen hearts and fallen leaves,
Starlings light on the broken trees.
I find we all need a place to land.
Little bird of heaven right here in your hand.

REPEAT VERSE 4.

[Sung by Reeltime Travelers on "Livin' Reeltime, Thinkin' Old-Time," Yodel-Ay-Hee CD 42, 2004.

[Martha Scanlan is a member of Reeltime Travelers.]

Nit picking I know but I think the first line second word is LIT.

I don't believe Martha sings withthe Reel Time Travelers any longer, she seems to be appearing with the backing of a superb couple of North Carolina's finest; Trevor and Travis Stewart.

Martha Scanlan wrote both "Hallelujah" and "Little Bird of Heaven". You should look around for "The West Was Burning" and "Up on the Divide".

"I am pretty shure the chords are C-F-C-Am-C-F-C-G7-C
Martha Scanlan playing guitar capoed to the fifth fret: G-C-G-Em-G-C-G-D7-G"

I found that on a banjo site where they seem to specialize helping each other with tabs. However, a chord's a chord. I hope it helps.
