Down Came a Blackbird  Lila McCann

Down Came A Blackbird by Lila McCann
Intro: G
[G]Down came a blackbird, set on a fence, talkin' in riddles, makin' no sense
She's gone[C], [F] [C] you're baby's gone,[G]
[G]Down came a blackbird, perched on pole, took out a mirror, and said, "Son,
behold"
Cause she's gone, [C] yo[F]ur[C] baby's gone Woooooo[D]o![Dsus]
CHORUS:
G (throughout)
Gone like a dollar spent on a drink, head hangin' over the kitchen sink
Gone like the wind through a cabin door, never gonna blow that way no more
Gone like the song of a mockingbird, laughing at every little thing he heard
Gone like a dream in a puff of smoke, she ain't comin' back and it ain't no
joke
She's gone[C], [F] y[C]ou're baby's gone[D] [Dsus]
Down came a blackbird, set by the fire,
Said "the future's comin' at you like a freight train
And you're walkin' the wire"
Cause she's gone, you're baby's gone Wooooooo!
Gone like a dollar spent on a drink, head hangin' over the kitchen sink
Gone like a dream in a puff of smoke, she ain't comin' back and it ain't no
joke
She's gone, you're baby's gone
BRIDGE:
Em (strum)
She says she doesn't want a man who hangs around the house
Am (strum)
Who doesn't say a word unless he's shootin' off his mouth
There's got t[Em]o be a better way to be a lovin' wife[C]
If she stay[D]s here she'll end up his waitress for life
Down came a blackbird, set on a fence,
Talkin' in riddles, and makin' absolutely perfect sense
Cause she's gone, you're baby's gone, Wooooooo!
Down came a blackbird
Down came a blackbird
