Down Came A Blackbird Lyrics


(mark spiro/micheal smotherman)down came a blackbird
set on a fence
talkin’ in riddles
makin’ no sense
cause she’s gone
you’re baby’s gone
down came a blackbird
perched on pole
took out a mirror
and said, “son, behold”
cause she’s gone
your baby’s gonegone 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
she’s gone
you’re baby’s gonedown came a blackbird
set by the fire
said “the future’s comin’ at you like a freight train
and you’re walkin’ a wire”
cause she’s gone
you’re baby’s gonegone 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 goneshe says she doesn’t want a man who hangs around the house
who doesn’t say a word unless he’s shootin’ off his mouth
there’s got to be a better way to be a lovin’ wife
if she stays here she’ll end up her waitress for lifedown came a blackbird
set on a fence
talkin’ in riddles
and makin’ absolutely perfect sense
cause she’s gone
you’re baby’s gonegone 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
she’s gone
you’re baby’s gonedown came a blackbird
down came a blackbird
