One mornin' when I was ridin'
In my old pickup truck
A beautiful bluebird came flyin' down
My eyes caught the color
As it lead me down the road
Dippin' and bobbin' in the sun
I've never seen that blue before
'Cept in one place
And she's not here with me right now
So I followed all the way
To the top of the hill
That's where she kept on climbin' lord
Someday I will

[Chorus]
Beautiful bluebird
See how she flies
Looks like she's always goin' home
If heaven had a window
Where the sun came shinin' through
Like a beautiful bluebird
I'd come flyin' back to you

Well it kind of struck me funny
Sort of made me smile
After all these years on this old road
How God could show me somethin'
Never say a word
There's so much that I don't know
I've never seen that blue before
Except in one place
And she's not here with me right now
I followed all the way to the top of the hill
That's where she kept on climbin' lord
And someday I will

[Chorus: x2]

    General CommentI think this song is about a woman he loved. I don't think she is DEAD. I think he couldn't be with her. She has blue eyes.
