Verse 1 chords: D The fairest bloom the mountain knows D7 Is not an iris or a wild rose G D But the little flower of which I'll tell A D Known as the brave acony bell Verse 2: (use verse 1 chords) Just a simple flower so small and plain With a pearly hue and a little known name But the yellow birds sing when they see it bloom For they know that spring is coming soon Verse 3: (use verse 1 chords) Well it makes its home mid the rocks and the rills Where the snows lie deep on the windy hills And it tells the world "Why should I wait This ice and snow is gonna melt away." Outro verse: G D And so I'll sing that yellow bird's song A D [play intro riff] For the troubled times will soon be gone
