Blackbirds.
Grethchen Peters.
Album: Blackbirds.
Capo 2.

Intro: Em G Em

Em                                   Am             C
The blackbirds came at dusk and they roosted in the cane,
F                            C
Raised such a ruckus that it shook my windowpane,
        Em                     G  Am 
And Iím covered up in dirt and I stink of kerosene,
       F             C              Em
And no matter what I do I canít get clean,
Em                             c
Last thing I remember was your footsteps in the hall,
Fmaj7                      C
Whisky in your voice and a shotgun on the wall,
            Em                              Am             C
Now thereís shadows in the shadows, thereís trouble in the cane,
            F                  C              E
And thereís things you do that you just canít explain.

(Chorus)
C                       Em
Uneasy lies the head, unfaithful is the heart,
  C            D           Em
Ungrateful and unlucky and untrue,
    C                         Em
And no one saw me coming, and no one saw me go,
C        D              Em
Only the blackbirds and you.

Em                                  Am                   C
Come harvest in the cane fields the sky turns black with smoke,
     F                           C
So I took our fatherís gun and a heavy piece of rope,
      Em                                     Am       C
And I left you lying there like rotten fruit upon the ground,
      F                 C                      E
And I lit a torch and I burned the whole thing down.

(Chorus)
C                       Em
Uneasy lies the head, unfaithful is the heart,
  C            D           Em
Ungrateful and unlucky and untrue,
    C                         Em
And no one saw me coming, and no one saw me go,
C        D              Em
Only the blackbirds and you.

Break: C D C D Em7 A

Em                         Am                C
Our father was a farmer he planted fields of cane
   F                            G                C
He planted seeds of evil and we harvested in the shame,
Em                                       Am             C
Oh and Iím the last one standing thereís no one left to tell,
              F            C               E
And when itís my time Iíll see you both in hell.

(Chorus)
C                       Em
Uneasy lies the head, unfaithful is the heart,
  C            D           Em
Ungrateful and unlucky and untrue,
    C                         Em
And no one saw me coming, and no one saw me go,
C        D              Em
Only the blackbirds and you,
    C                         Em
And no one saw me coming, and no one saw me go,
C        D              Em
Only the blackbirds and you.
