I lay by the window, a-watchin' the rain
So I could go somewhere to play
Then down from the sky flew a little brown sparrow
And he sit there, watchin', as I lay wond'rin'

And little brown sparrows were free
Then he looked in my window and he spied his reflection
And he wondered if ever the sun would come shinin'

Fast as the wind, sure as could be
For the little brown sparrow and me
On a green April mornin', when I was a young boy

He died on the ground in the cold April rain
And someone could only explain
Then I laid there and saw the wind blow through the willow
And there in the rain, I cried for a sparrow

And little brown sparrows were free
For a little brown sparrow and me
