Lyrics

NIGHTBIRD BLUES


I HEARD A NIGHTBIRD CALLING, CALLING YOUR NAME
AND BABY, IT MADE ME WANT TO SEE YOU AGAIN
AND I WONDER, WONDER WHERE YOU ARE NOW

I HEARD A TRAIN WHISTLE BLOWING, SOUND SO SAD
AND BABY, IT MADE ME WANT TO HOLD YOU AGAIN SO BAD
AND I WONDER, WONDER WHERE YOU ARE NOW

AIN'T IT FUNNY HOW THE FEELING HOLDS ON
EVERYTHING I HEAR IS JUST ANOTHER SAD SONG
MAKES ME WONDER, WONDER WHERE YOU ARE NOW

I HEARD THE WHEELS WHINING, SOUND SO BLUE
SOUND JUST LIKE THEY SOUNDED AS I DROVE AWAY FROM YOU
AND I WONDER, WONDER WHERE YOU ARE NOW

I HEARD MY HEART POUNDING INSIDE MY HEAD
MADE ME WANT TO TAKE BACK EVERYTHING THAT I SAID

I SAID WE BOTH HAD BETTER THINGS TO DO
THAT MY HAPPINESS WAS JUST A MATTER OF LEAVING YOU

AND NOW IT'S SO FUNNY HOW THE FEELING HANGS ON
EVERYTHING I HEAR IS JUST ANOTHER SAD SONG
MAKES ME WONDER, WONDER WHERE YOU ARE NOW
