Intro:  Am  (repeatedly fingerpicked)

Am
Wake up wake up, little sparrow,
                Dm   Em         Am
Don't make your home out in the snow,
                Dm   Em         Am
Don't make your home out in the snow,
Am
Little bird, oh, don't you know,
                   Dm    Em          Am
Your friends flew, South many months ago,
                   Dm    Em          Am
Your friends flew, South many months ago,
Am
You're just a babe, you cannot fly,
                 Dm     Em             Am
Your wings won't spread up against the sky,
                 Dm     Em             Am
Your wings won't spread up against the sky,
Am
Wake up wake up, little sparrow,
                Dm   Em         Am
Don't make your home out in the snow,
                Dm   Em         Am
Don't make your home out in the snow,
                Dm   Em        (Am)
Don't make your home out in the snow.


I have made an effort to correspond the chord changes w/lyrics so as
far as i can tell this is very accurate.

Tab ideas:
           Am ....         Dm      h p        Em               Am..
e -----------0------------1----------------------0--0--------------0-|
B ---------1-1------------3-3--------------------0--0------------1-1-|
G ---------2------------2-------2-0-2-0----------0--0----0-------2---|
D -------2------------0-------0------------------2 -2--2-------2-----|
A -----0--------------------------------------2--------------0-------|
E ------------------------------------------0------------------------|


This tablature is just meant as a very rough guide to the finger-picking,
alternatively you could just strum the chords lightly, or do as Banhart
seems to and mix it up.

Transcribed by ear, all my own work.
Good Luck
