Words, Music: Phyl Lobl; Sung by Jean Redpath

I haven't actually recorded this song myself but others have. Foremost is Scottish singer Jean Redpath. I had attended one of her workshops in Scotland and somehow this song was on her tape of a session. Years later she asked if she could record it. It is on her CD 'Summer of My Dreams'. (Jean Redpath has given permission for her version of 'Blackbird' from the CD 'Summer of My Dreams' to be used on this web-site.) Each chorus has a different third line to follow the seasons. Notation for this song is also available in the Bronzewing Songbook.
