Down Came a Blackbird

	  		Tabbed by:  Gerry Watkins 
 
 
Down came a blackbird, set on a fence, talkin' in riddles, makin' no sense 
          C       F C                             G 
She's gone,          you're baby's gone, 
G 
Down came a blackbird, perched on pole, took out a mirror, and said, "Son, 
behold" 
                     C      F C                          D   Dsus 
Cause she's gone,         your baby's gone        Wooooooo! 
 
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 
          C       F C                           D  Dsus 
She's gone,        you're baby's gone 
 
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 
             Em                                       C 
There's got to be a better way to be a lovin' wife 
           D 
If she stays 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
