lyrics

Black-throated Blue Warbler

The moon was full, the leaves were dry
As late September sailed on by
And Mother Nature took a bow again
The flowers died, the fall crept in
The pumpkins stared with crooked grins
The mountain colors glowed magnificent

Black-throated Blue, it's time for you
To make another journey—start anew
The cycle's never-ending
And there is no time to wonder why
There is no other way to choose

The stars came out, December cried
As January crystallized
And Father Time became a child again
The galaxy, the universe
The darkness looming like a curse
The snow became a blanket heaven sent

Black-throated Blue, it's time for you
To settle where your winter home's in bloom
The cycle's never-ending
And there is no time to wonder why
There is no other way to choose

The heavy air, an August noon
November couldn't come too soon
The Devil smiled and clapped his hands again
The nest was bare, the babies gone
The father sang a sadder song
The waning summer failed to spare expense

Black-throated Blue, it's time for you
To make another journey—start anew
The cycle's never-ending
And there is no time to wonder why
There is no other way to choose
