Ryan Bingham - How Shall A Sparrow Fly Lyrics

Oh how shall a sparrow fly,
Or have the heart to sing?
If all she can do is cry,
About her broken wings?

Oh how shall a sparrow fly,
If weather sleeps in vain?
Or keep her feathers dry,
Under clouds of death and rain?

Oh how shall a sparrow fly,
And find her one true love?
If all she can do is lie around,
And dream of white tail doves?

Oh how shall a sparrow fly,
Or have the heart to sing?
If all she can do is cry,
About her broken wings?

    Such a special movie; but this song killed me. Too good, especially in the context.

    Really nice song. Thnx for sharing. Hope somebody will do a acoustic guitar version. Not really into the banjo'ish sound. But nice nonetheless

    When I saw this movie tonight and this guy how he played this song was so beautiful and how the lyrics was. I just couldn't believe he died in the movie. Rest in peace Sergeant Paul Malloy.

    “The essential American soul is hard, isolate, stoic, and a killer. It has never yet melted.”


    Yah man.

  35. TheMarclan

    No doubt a great lyricist, a great singer and guitar player but ladies and gentlemen this man is a socialist hiding behind a cowboy facade. He’s no friend to this great country. I’ve seen him in concert and read his lyrics. He’s a blooming communist. Don’t be fooled. He’s an anti-gun and an open border snowflake wearing a cowboy hat. It’s all in his lyrics. You don’t win a Grammy or break into Hollywood without first selling your soul to the liberal agenda.

    Wesley Bynum

    C Pegg 🧐🤦🏼‍♂️


    "He’s no friend to this great country." Please don't embarrass yourself.


    You should see the movie, you'll understand why it was never a blessing to have weaponns
