Intro: C 

verse 1 
N.C.       C          F          C 
Gulf coast highway, I worked the rails 
  F          C                      G          F 
I worked the rice fields with their cool, dark wells 
             Am              G           C 
I worked the oil rigs in the Gulf of Mexico 
         F            C                 G                 C 
The only thing I ever owned is this old house here by the road 

tabchorus
Am G C But when I die I'm gonna catch some blackbird's wing F C G C I will fly away to heaven, come some sweet Blue Bonnet spring

verse 2 N.C. C F C I walked through springtime when we were home F Our days were sweet, our nights were warm Am G C The seasons changed, jobs would come, the flowers fade F C G C And this old house felt so alone when work took him away
tabchorus
Am G C And when he dies he says he'll catch some blackbird's wing F C G C He will fly away to heaven, come some sweet Blue Bonnet spring

Instrumental: E F E A D G F verse 3 N.C. C F C Highway 90, the jobs are gone F We tend our garden, we set the sun Am G C This is the only place on earth Blue Bonnets grow F C G C Once a year they come and grow at this old house here by the road
tabchorus
Am G C And when we die we say we'll catch some blackbird's wing F C G C We will fly away to heaven, come some sweet Blue Bonnet spring Am G C And when we die we say we'll catch some blackbird's wing F C G C We will fly away together, come some sweet Blue Bonnet spring
