BIRD OF BLUE.
Copyright, 1890, by T. B. Harms & Co.
Words by George Cooper. Music by Charles E. Pratt

Sing, bird of blue, sing, heart so true!
Once, long ago, when the blossoms were white on the tree,
Far, far from my side sailed the heart that I loved o'er the sea.
Sweet, sweet from the bough then you sang, while I bade him adieu;
Love, love was your song, when he whispered a promise so true.
Still In my heart sang a bird the days to cheer,
Tho' the winter was nigh, gloomy the sky, meadow and valley so drear.
Then o'er the wave came a dream of hope to me,
'Twas carolled by you, my sweet bird of blue, high on the budding tree.
Sail, ship so fair, to the heart that was lonely and sad
Bird, welcome him home with a song that is sunny and glad
Break, vales, into bloom for the one that my heart longs to see
Near, near to the shore is the ship that is sailing to me.

Sing from the bough, bird of blue, of the heart that is loving and dear!
Sing for the joy that is mine, and the ship that is sailing so neart
Sing for the promise so sweet, and the love that forever is true!
Joy has come back to my heart, it has come with my bird of blue.

Sing, bird of blue, sing, heart so true!
Sail, ship so fair, to the heart that was lonely and sad!
Bird, welcome him home with a song that is sunny and glad.
Break, vales, into bloom for the one that my heart longs to see!
Near, near to the shore is the ship that is sailing to me!
Sweet bird of blue, sweet bird of blue.
