Oh can't you see that pretty little bird
Sing with all his heart and soul
He's got a blood red spot on his wing
And all the rest of him is black, as coal
Of all the colors I ever did see
Red and black are the ones I dread
For when a man spills blood on the coal
They carry him down form the coal mine, dead
Oh fly away you red winged bird
Leave behind the miner's wife
She'll dream about you when you're gone
She'll dream about you all her life
