Verse 1:
There's a [C]yellow flower, [Em]by your bed;

[Cmaj7] So you won't smell [Fmaj7]it;
I [G]know what you'll [Fmaj7]miss.

And there's a [C]hummingbird, a [G]hummingbird,
A [C]hummingbird, A [F]hummingbird.
Oh there's a [C]hummingbird, [G]singing.[F] [C]
Verse 2:
[C] There is the hat you made,
The [Em]clothes you wore;
[F] Lying down on the [C]cold dirty floor.
[Cmaj7] The colours are [Fmaj7]fading;
They'll [G]never shine a-[Fmaj7]gain.
Chorus 2:
And there's a [C]hummingbird, a [G]hummingbird,

Verse 3:
[C] Now the road is [Em]turning grey;
[F] There's a shadow where [C]you once lay.
[Cmaj7] They'll find it to-[Fmaj7]morrow,
And [G]think you went a-[Fmaj7]lone.
Chorus 3:
And there's a [C]hummingbird, a [G]hummingbird,
A [C]hummingbird, A [F]hummingbird.
Oh there's a [C]hummingbird, [G]crying.[F] [C]
