Baltimore Oriole Lyrics

by George Harrison

Baltimore Oriole
Took one look at that mercury, forty below
No life for a lady
To be draggin' her feathers around in the snow

Leaving me blue, off she flew
To the Tangipaho, down in Louisiana
Where a two timin' Jaybird
Met the divine Miss O

I'd like to ruffle his plumage
That Baltimore Oriole
Messed around with that big guy
Till he singed her wings

Forgivin' is easy, it's a woman like, now and then
Could happen to thing
Send her back home
Home ain't home without her warbling

How she can sing
Make a lonely man happy, Baltimore Oriole
Come down from that bough

Send her back home, back home
Home ain't home without her warbling

How she can sing
Make a lonely man happy, Baltimore Oriole
Come down from that bough
Fly to your daddy now
