Gonna Find Me a Bluebird
Marvin Rainwater Lyrics

Gonna find me a bluebird
Let him sing me a song
'Cause my heart's been broken
Much too long
Gonna chase me a rainbow
Through a heaven of blue
'Cause I'm all through crying over you

There was a time my love was needed
My life completed, my dreams come true
Then came the time my life was haunted
My love unwanted, all for you

Gonna find me a bluebird
Let him sing me a song
'Cause my heart's been broken
Much too long
Gonna chase me a rainbow
through' a heaven of blue
'Cause I'm all through crying over you

Was 12 Years old when this came out.  Liked it then and like it more now than then.  A reminder  of how beautiful music was during the best generation of music.  Still have the original 45.

Wendell Freeman

Absolute Perfection

No need to search for years, you are invited to listen to the lists of Absolute Perfection. This song has always been on the list "Pop Artists Rock Era johnny Preston to Debbie Reynolds" All lists contain 150 to 250 pieces of music in a Virtual Time Machine that has all songs recorded from fifties through 1975. Billboard charts are counted down for every year, "Rare Records "A's" are artists alphabetically in which 45s are worth thousands of dollars. These lists are well hidden but if you are invited and know what to look for PLAY ALL and you will still be listening in the year 3000 and seeing rare videos of your favorite artists. Start with this list "Pop Artists" and from there go wherever you wish in the Time Machine and find hidden lists, hidden treasures of music long forgotten or never heard or searched for a long time. Enjoy.

My favorite song when I was growing up. Lived on a farm and I had chores to do. We had a radio station that would play requests and when this song was going to come on, my Mom would call me in so I could hear it. Later, when I worked in the Twin Cities, we saw him at the Medina Ballroom and I even have a picture of myself with him. How many can say that?
