In the delta sun, down in Arkansas,
It's the great god bird with its altar call,
And the sewing machine, the industrial god,
On the great bayou where they saw it fall.

It's the great god bird, down in Arkansas,
And the hunters beware, or the fishers fall,
And paradise might close from it's safe flight flawed,
It's the great god bird through it all.

And the watchers beware, lest they see it fall,
And paradise might laugh when at last it falls,
And the sewing machine, the industrial god,
It's the great god bird with it's altar call.

Yes, it's the great god bird with its altar call,
Yes, it's the great god bird through it all!
