Ok...now the song...

Verse 1
E
Black bird, why you wearin' that frown?
                     A                  A/G
Well, don't ya know Jesus loves you and me

and the preacher on TV your puttin' down?
E
Blackbird, how I love to hear your songs.
                     A                  A/G
Well, I could spend all my time in the shade of a tree

And listen all day long.

A-G-E
     Whoa yeah
A-G-E
     I could listen
A-G-E
     All day long
A-G-E

Chorus
                G                  D
Whoa but your ever hearing, never understanding,
       A                                  E
Yea I see you're not percieving and your heart has grown calloused
G                       D
You're in a storm and lost your way,
           A
Won't you fly to heaven and be saved today.

Verse 2
E
Blackbird, now you've broken your wings.
                A
You try to fly high, but you know that
     A/G
You can't go anywhere, you can't do anything.
E
Blackbird, who put you in your cage?
                A
Tell me was it God or was it you
         A/G
Or was it me, well I guess it don't matter anyway.

A-G-E
     Whoa no no
A-G-E
     It don't matter
A-G-E
     No no anyway
A-G-E

Chorus

E-A
   Whoa yeah
E-A        E-A
   Blackbird

GA

A-G-E
A-G-E

You say you need a rememdy,

For the thorn in your pride
                          A
I think it's such a tragedy
          A    G     E
That you left Him behind!

You say you light your candle

But your love light doesn't shine.
                        A
You say you talk to angels
        A           G      E
Well, I say that's such a lie.

A-G-E
     Yes it is now
A-G-E           A-G-E                     A-G-E
     such a lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, lie.

Chorus

E-A
   Whoa yeah
E-A         E-A
   Blackbird

A-G-E
A-G-E

If anyone knows the guitar solo, I am very interested in knowing what it
is. But I am still a young musician, so I'm not really good at figuring
that kind of stuff out. Well, God Bless!
