Red Winged Blackbird David Francey

A classic piece celebrating the return of Spring. This was a really enjoyable song to put together, with Brent in DADGAD tuning.

Lyrics

Red-winged Blackbird (David Francey) capo 2

Chorus

Thought I heard a red-winged blackbird
Red-winged blackbird down my road
Thought I heard a red-winged blackbird
Red-winged blackbird down my road

1. He’ll be there beside the river
When winter finally breaks its bones
He’ll be king among the rushes
He’ll be master of his home

Chorus
Thought I heard a red-winged blackbird ...


2. Safe as Moses in the rushes
Makes his home on the river wide
Every time I hear him singing
Makes me feel like spring inside

Chorus
Thought I heard a red-winged blackbird ...


3. He’ll be in there singing his heart out
He’ll be telling stories too
Of where he went to winter last year
How he’s going back there too


Chorus
Thought I heard a red-winged blackbird ...

Chorus acapella
Thought I heard a red-winged blackbird ...

Guitar out
