"Sparrow Song" by The Seekers

  • A comment based on me originally stating this was by The New Seekers

    Seek the truth...when the Seekers were with Louisa, they continued to
    call themselves The Seekers. The New Seekers were a completely separate
    band, albeit created by Keith Potger in the early seventies.

    • "For seven years that resentment festered, and in 1975, back in Australia, they put the group back together, recruiting Dutch-born Australian singer Louisa Wesseling as Judith's replacement. They were immediately rewarded with a major hit, 'The Sparrow Song', written by the group's own Bruce Woodley."

"Sparrow Song"

Fly little sparrow
High above the clouds,
Looking for a place to
Lay your weary body down.

Fly on little sparrow
Northward to the sun,
Wonder if you'll ever
Find yourself a home.

Tell me__Little sparrow
Tell me__What do you see?
I see a concrete canyon
Without a single tree,
And it goes winding on for ever
Where once proud rivers ran,
Oh I hope that I can find
One truly happy man.

Fly little sparrow
High above the clouds,
Looking for a place to
Lay your weary body down.

I seek a land of far horizons
Of gentle winds and summer rain,
Where the children are not hungry
And they've put an end to pain,
And I will sing a song of freedom
In the arms of a golden tree,
Is there such a place on earth
For a tiny bird like me?

Fly little sparrow
High above the clouds,
Looking for a place to
Lay your weary body down.

Yes and fly on little sparrow
Northward to the sun,
Wonder if you'll ever
Find yourself a home.
