If I leave here tomorrow
Would you still remember me?
For I must be travelin' on now
There's too many places I got to see

And if I stay here with you, boy
Things just couldn't be the same
'Cause I'm as free as a bird now
And this bird you cannot change
And this bird you cannot change
And this bird you cannot change
Lord knows, I can't change

Bye and bye, baby, it's been a sweet love
Oh, this feelin' I can't change
Please, don't take it so badly
Lord knows, I'm to blame

And if I stay here with you, boy
Things just couldn't be the same
'Cause I'm as free as a bird now
And this bird you cannot change
And this bird you cannot change
And this bird you cannot change
Lord knows, I can't change
Lord help me, I can't change
Lord, I can't change
So won't you fly high, free bird?
