Verse 1 chords:
The fairest [D]bloom the mountain knows
Is not an iris or a wild [D7]rose
But the little f[G]lower of which I'll te[D]ll
Known as the br[A]ave acony [D]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:
And so I'll [G]sing that yellow bird's [D]song
A D (play intro riff)
For the troubled times will soon be gone
