If I leave here tomorrow
Would you still remember me?
For I must be traveling on, now
'Cause there's too many places I've got to see
But, if I stayed here with you, girl
Things just couldn't be the same
'Cause I'm as free as a bird now
And this bird you can not change
And this bird you can not change
And this bird you can not change
Lord knows, I can't change

Bye, bye, baby it's been a sweet love
Though this feeling I can't change Read more about Dark Horse Traders' Hedge: Freebird!

Song sung blue
Everybody knows one
Song sung blue
Every garden grows one

Me and you are subject to the blues now and then
But when you take the blues and make a song
You sing them out again
Sing 'em out again

Song sung blue
Weeping like a willow
Song sung blue
Sleeping on my pillow...
