The Littlest Birds – Yours Truly

Well I feel like an old hobo, I’m sad lonesome and blue I was fair as the summer day now the summer days are through You pass through places and places pass through you

But you carry ’em with you on the souls of your travellin’ shoes

Well I love you so dearly I love you so clearly Wake you up in the mornin’ so early Just to tell you I got the wanderin’ blues I got the wanderin’ blues And i’m gonna quit these ramblin’ ways one of these days soon

And I’ll sing

The littlest birds sing the prettiest songs…

Well it’s times like these I feel so small and wild Like the ramblin’ footsteps of a wanderin’ child And i’m lonesome as a lonesome whippoorwill Singin these blues with a warble and a trill But i’m not too blue to fly

No i’m not too blue to fly cuz

The littlest birds sing the prettiest songs…

Well I love you so dearly I love you so fearlessly Wake you up in the mornin’ so early Just to tell you I got the wanderin’ blues I got the wanderin’ blues

And I don’t wanna leave you I love you through and through

Oh I left my baby on a pretty blue train And I sang my songs to the cold and the rain I had the wanderin’ blues And I sang those wanderin’ blues And i’m gonna quit these ramblin’ ways one of these days soon

And i’ll sing

The littlest birds sing the prettiest songs….

I don’t care if the sun don’t shine I don’t care if nothin’ is mine I don’t care if I’m nervous with you

I’ll do my lovin’ in the wintertime

When I was in sixth form college I fell head over heels for this band – And this song never fails to get me smiling. I hope you’re all having a happy week,
