CHORUS:
D               A              D
Yellow bird, up high in banana tree.
D                A                  D
Yellow bird, you sit all alone like me.

#1.
G                     D
Did your lady friend, leave the nest again?
A                 D
That is very sad, makes me feel so bad.
G                 D
You can fly away, in the sky away..
A                      D
you're more lucky than me.

#2.
D             A                                 D
I also have a pretty girl, she's not with me, today.
D                         G             A
They're all the same, the pretty girls..make them the nest..
               D
then they fly away.

CHORUS:
D               A              D
Yellow bird, up high in banana tree.
D                A                  D
Yellow bird, you sit all alone like me.

#3.
G                D
Better fly away, in the sky away.
A                   D
Picker coming soon, pick from night to noon.
G                     D
Black on yellow, you, like banana, too.
A                       D
They might pick you someday.

#4.
D                  G            A                 D
Wish that I were a yellow bird..I'd fly away with you.
D              G                A
But I am not a yellow bird..so, here I sit, nothing 
        D
else to do.

OUTRO:
D            
Yellow bird..yellow bird..yellow bird..

yellow bird..yellow bird..(Fade.)
