Daniel O'Donnell & Mary Duff I Heard The Bluebird Sing Lyrics

Recorded by Elton Britt
Written by Hod Pharis

I met a girl out in the hills
Who gave my lonely heart a thrill
Her beauty seemed just like a breath of spring
And when I looked into her eyes
I thought of bluest summer skies
When I held her hand in mine
I heard the bluebirds sing.

They sang of wond'ring, wond'ring if he loves her
Will she marry, marry if he'll ask her
Will her heart beat, heart beat true for him for then and evermore
And when she's lonely, lonely, is he near her
When there's sadness, sadness, will he cheer her
Will they always, always be together
Until in death they part.

I courted her for months on end
Until she promised we would wed
We planned on being married in the spring
All through the long cold winter months
It seemed that spring would never come
And every gloomy winter day
I heard the bluebirds sing.

They sang of waiting, waiting for the flowers
And of counting, counting every hour
Till the bluebird, bluebird chirps his welcome
Into the world once more.
And though we're waiting, waiting for the sunshine
We keep hating, hating every storm cloud
That is gathered, gathered o'er the mountain
To keep us far apart.

And when at last spring touched the earth
We married in the village church
Our wedding seemed just like a dream come true
So many years have come and gone
Our love is still as true and strong
As when I found her long ago
And still the bluebirds sing.

They sang of loving, loving every hour
That I'm married, married to my flower
We'll be happy, happy ever after since the day we met
And though we're older, older, love is sweeter
We grow fonder, fonder of each other
We'll he sweethearts, sweethearts close together
Until the end of time.
