(Remark: On the low E-string, I use the little finger for the "3"
note, and the thumb for the "2" and "1". I also find the "4" note
quite difficult to reach, so usually I play that as a "0".)
There's a [Am]lump in my throat,[G] and an ache in my [D]heart[F]
There's [Am]tears in my eyes,[G] 'cause we're an ocean a[D]part[F]
There's [Am]nothing quite as real as [G]being on my own,
[D]Nothing quite as true as [F]being all alone
This [Am]bird has flown,[F]
But when the [D]summer has passed, she'll [F]come back home
[C]Love, come wing your [G]way,
[Em]Sweet bird of passage, come home to [F]stay
[C]Love, come wing your [G]way,
[Em]Sweet bird of passage, come home to [F]lay with me, me,
[G#]Stay with me for[Am]ever
[G] [D] [F] [Am] [G] [D] [F]  
With a [Am]change of season,[G] she flies her [D]nest[F]
And like the [Am]sunny dusk,[G] she sets to the [D]west[F]
[Am]Loneliness is the [G]cross I bear, [D]solitude is the [F]cloak I wear
I [Am]miss you, I need you, I [G]love you,
When the [D]autumn comes, I'll be [F]waiting for you
[C]Love, come wing your [G]way,
[Em]Sweet bird of passage, come home to [F]stay
[C]Love, come wing your [G]way,
[Em]Sweet bird of passage, come home to [F]lay with me, me,
[G#]Stay with me for[Am]ever,[F] and [G]ever,[Em] and [F]ever,[Dm] and [E7]ever
Am F G Em F Dm E7 (Repeat till end)
