"Blackbird Girl" Lyrics

Updated: Mar 14, 2021

Blackbird Girl

Blackbird girl, you spread your wings

And flew away one gray morning

I watched you go from down below

Until you disappeared, free and alone

(C) Blackbird girl, I couldn’t blame you

When you left behind the nothing that everything came to

Now you’ve got another life

Another man, and you’re another wife

In another nest, you’re moving on

But I still sing this blackbird song


Late at night, the ghosts all roam

Around this house we used to own

And though you’ve flown, you left a part

Of our old (dead) love, in my haunted heart

(C) x 2
