Saw you last night
Butterfly in full flight
The moon and stars delight to shine upon you still

Took a look around
Butterfly's old stomping ground
Barely made a sound
Left no stone unturned

Fly, butterfly, on the wings of wind
Fly, butterfly, on the wings of wind
Sure hope the road and all her wicked friends never turn you in

You sang a sweet song
Butterfly we all sang along
You really turn it on
An old familiar melody

You were the one that flew
Butterfly almost had me too
Can't help but think of you
But that was yesterday

Fly, butterfly, on the wings of wind
Fly, butterfly, on the wings of wind
Sure hope the road and all her wicked friends never turn you in

Saw you last night
Butterfly in full flight
The moon and stars delight to shine upon you still

Fly, butterfly, on the wings of wind
Fly, butterfly, on the wings of wind
Fly on the wings
Sure hope the road and all her wicked friends never turn you in

    General CommentI wonder if this song is about John Morris Rankin, Jimmy's brother who died. He was fiddler for the Rankin family and the second verse in particular makes me wonder if it is about him.
