Little Sparrow

Album: Little Sparrow (2001)
  • (Dolly Parton)

    Little sparrow, little sparrow
    Precious fragile little thing
    Little sparrow, little sparrow
    Flies so high and feels no pain
    All ye maidens hede my warning
    Never trust the hearts of men
    They will crush you like a sparrow
    Leaving you to never mend
    They will vow to always love you
    Swear no love but yours will do
    Then they'll leave you for another
    Break your little heart in two

    Little sparrow, little sparrow
    Precious fragile little thing
    Little sparrow, little sparrow
    Flies so high and feels no pain

    If I were a little sparrow
    O'er these mountains I would fly
    I would find him, I would find him
    Look into his lying eyes
    I would flutter all around him
    On my little sparrow wings
    I would ask him, I would ask him
    Why he let me love in vain

    I am not a little sparrow
    I am just the broken dream
    Of a cold false-hearted lover
    And his evil cunning scheme

    Little sparrow, little sparrow
    Precious fragile little thing
    Little sparrow, little sparrow
    Flies so high and feels no pain

    All ye maidens fair and tender
    Never trust the hearts of men
    They will crush you like a sparrow
    Leaving you to never mend

    Little sparrow, little sparrow
    Oh the sorrow never ends
