Turkey Day
Posted on: 11/28/2019 12:31 PM

With today being Turkey Day (Thanksgiving) here in the U.S., it had me wondering how many times the former trio mentioned birds in their song lyrics, and I'm not meaning just the word "birds" but a specific kind. I thought there would be more, but there was only a few. Here they are (if I missed any, feel free to mention it/them).

LADY WITH A BLUEBIRD
She was a lady with a bluebird sleepin' in her chair
She was dreamin' 'bout a girlfriend and wishing she was there

FLY
Fly, robin up in the air
High on a wing and a prayer

ONE MORNING
Round the bend to the run-off wash
I found a feather that a quail had lost

PIGEON SONG
Well, I had me a pigeon
By the name of Fred
But I done shot him
In the head

SANDMAN
'Cause I understand you've been running from the man
That goes by the name of the Sandman
He flies the sky like an eagle in the eye
Of a hurricane that's abandoned

CHRISTMAS IN CALIFORNIA
The boulevard, lights of red and green
As the snowbirds make the scene

I feel quite sure Dewey was meaning "a northerner who moves to a warmer southern state in the winter" when he mentioned "snowbirds"; however, there is actually a bird known by name as a snowbird.

I see that I accidently left one out. We'll see if anyone can name it.
