Album: Co-Starring



Now a hummingbird is a little critter

Wings flutter so fast they’s always blurred

They’re beautiful dazzling feisty things

And there’s a guitar called the hummingbird


It’s a square shouldered dreadnaught made by Gibson

Mahogany back and sides, top is spruce

There’s a hummingbird drinking from a trumpet flower

On a pick guard the color of rose mateus


Make a joyful noise unto the lord

That’s from the book of Psalms in the Holy Word

Lord I’m joyful when I’m playing old time gospel

In the key of G on my hummingbird


When the roll is called up yonder

Well now I hope my name is heard

When I pass through the pearly gates

Maybe saint Peter’ll let me bring in my hummingbird
