      C                Em              Dm
    Beneath this snowy mantle cold and clean
        G
    The unborn grass lies waiting
                            C
    for its coat to turn to green
        C                Em             Dm
    The snowbird sings a song he always sings
        G
    And speaks to me of flowers
                             C
    that will bloom again in spring


         C              Em                   Dm
    When I was young my heart was young then too
       G
    Anything that it would tell me,
                                  C
    that's the thing that I would do
        C               Em           Dm
    But now I feel such emptiness within
            G
    For the thing that I want most in life
                         C
    Is the thing I can't win


    C                Em             Dm
    Spread your tiny wings and fly away
        G
    And take the snow back with you
                               C
    Where it came from on that day
        C             Em        Dm
    The one I love forever is untrue
        G
    And if I could you know
                               C
    that I would fly away with you


        C                Em             Dm
    The breeze along the river seems to say
         G
    That she'll only break my heart again
                       C
    should I decide to stay
              C                Em                Dm
    So little snowbird take me with you when you go
            G
    To that land of gentle breezes
                              C
    where the peaceful waters flow

    C                Em             Dm
    Spread your tiny wings and fly away
        G
    And take the snow back with you
                               C
    Where it came from on that day
        C             Em        Dm
    The one I love forever is untrue
        G
    And if I could you know
                               C
    that I would fly away with you
              G
    Yeah, and if I could you know
                 F    G        C
    that I would fly away with you

About the artist behind Snowbird Tab:

Elvis Aaron Presley[1][2] (January 8, 1935–August 16, 1977), sometimes written Aron,a was an American singer, musician and actor. He is considered a cultural icon, sometimes referred to as "The King of Rock 'n' Roll", or simply "The King".

Presley began his career as one of the first performers of rockabilly, an uptempo fusion of country and rhythm and blues with a strong back beat. His novel versions of existing songs, mixing "black" and "white" sounds, made him popular—and controversial—as did his uninhibited stage and television performances. He recorded songs in the rock and roll genre, with tracks like "Hound Dog" and "Jailhouse Rock" later embodying the style. Presley had a versatile voice and had unusually wide success encompassing other genres, including gospel, blues, ballads and pop. To date, he has been inducted into four music halls of fame.

In the 1960s, Presley made the majority of his thirty-one movies—mainly poorly reviewed, but financially successful, musicals. In 1968, he returned with acclaim to live music in a television special, and thereafter performed across the U.S., notably in Las Vegas. Throughout his career, he set records for concert attendance, television ratings and recordings sales. He is one of the best-selling and most influential artists in the history of popular music. Health problems plagued Presley in later life which, coupled with a punishing tour schedule and addiction to prescription medication, led to his premature death at age 42.
