Song Lyric Sunday – Bird/Fly/Sky/Wing – Little Sparrow

Unexpected in common hours

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



Written by Dolly Parton, Little Sparrow appears on her album of the same name which was released in 2001 and which received a Grammy nomination for Best Bluegrass Album that year. The title song itself is considered to be both one of Parton’s lesser known songs and one of the best songs she has written. Dolly Parton described it having an old-timey flavor, like the old mountain songs her momma used to sing.



Little sparrow, little sparrow
Precious fragile little thing
Little sparrow, little sparrow
Flies so high and feels no pain
All ye maidens heed 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
