Hummingbird
B.B. King Lyrics


Sometimes I get impatient
But she cools me without words
And she comes so sweet and so plain
My hummingbird and have you heard
That I thought my life had ended
But I find that it's just begun
Cause she gets me where I live
I'll give all I have to give
I'm talking about that hummingbird
Oh she's little and she loves me
Too much for words to say
When I see her in the morning sleeping
She's little and she loves me
To my lucky day
Hummingbird don't fly away
When I'm felling wild and lonesome
She knows the words to say
And she gives me a little understanding
In her special way
And I just have to say
In my life I loved a woman
Because she's more than I deserve
And she gets me where I live
I'll give all I have to give
I'm talking about that hummingbird
Oh she's little and she loves me
Too much for words to say
When I see her in the morning sleeping
She's little and she loves me
To my lucky day
Hummingbird don't fly away

Sometimes, I get impatient but she cools me without words
And she comes so sweet and softly, my hummingbird
And have you heard that I thought my life had ended
But I find that it's just begun cause she gets me where I live
I'll give all I have to give, I'm talking about that hummingbird

[Chorus ]
Oh, she's little and she loves me too much for words to say
When I see her in the morning sleeping
She's little and she loves me to my lucky day
Hummingbird, don't fly away

[Verse 2]
When I'm feeling wild and lonesome, she knows the words to say
And she gives me a little understanding in her special way
And I just have to say, in my life I loved a woman
Because she's more than I deserve and she gets me where I live
I'll give all I have to give, I'm talking about that hummingbird

[Chorus]
Oh, she's little and she loves me too much for words to say
When I see her in the morning sleeping
She's little and she loves me to my lucky day
Hummingbird, don't fly away

When you've just been diagnosed with BREAST CANCER and the one person that always calms you down is already in heaven and you just wanna lay down, give up and not even think about fighting....

Then you see a HUMMINGBIRD at your window and you know it's that person saying "You better not even think about it!!!!! Get up a fight like you've never fought before!!!!"

I miss ALL my "HUMMINGBIRDS" that kept my spirits up and kept me going when I always felt down!!!!!

Leon Russell on piano. BB told Leon he wanted to cover his song Hummingbird and invited him to come down and play for the album. What a combination: BB King and Leon Russell!

RIP BB King

I heard the story this way: BB was searching for the “right” follow-up 45, after his hugely successful “The Thrill Is Gone.” One night at about 3AM, he heard “Hummingbird” and decided this would be it. He called around, got Leon’s phone number, and called, not caring how late it was. He asked Leon if he could record “Hummingbird” and Leon answered “Only if I can play piano on it.” Of course he imprinted his influence in it as you would expect, even to having the girls background vocals to match the background on his original version on the legendary “Leon Russell” album. Both men were geniuses. I imagine they’re playing together now that they both have transitioned to the higher ground.
