  1. Fly Away Bluebird

From the recording Fly Away Bluebird

I wrote this and we played it at the Star Club in Hamburg during December 1966 to New Year 1967 and never played it after that.
Then last year I decided to record it and was lucky to get my original bass player Thom Caccetta to put his magic touch to it.
 

Lyrics

FLY AWAY BLUEBIRD
Words and Music by John Cannon
 
Wrapped in a candy colored mist of my mind
people glow like candles then they soon fade and die.
Clouds pass above me and they leave me behind,
float like a feather in the blue painted sky.
Fly Away Bluebird
 
Mysteries of the heaven stay beneath their black veil
as stars in the darkness leave a Milky Way trail.
Trees all around me like the boundaries of time,
I hear notes of silver from a gold plated chime.
Fly Away Bluebird
 
Feeling half imprisoned by the world and its ways
part of me seeks happiness in uncharted bays.
Now I realize that the Bluebird’s my mind
searching a feathered cap I know it will find.
Fly Away Bluebird
