This plaintive tune makes reference to the beauty of a bird's song and has a tragic inspiration behind it. Band members Jerry Garcia and Robert Hunter wrote the 1971 song as a tribute to singer Janis Joplin, who died of a drug overdose in 1970 ("All I know is something like a bird within her sang/All I know she sang a little while and then flew on").
