Gretchen Peters - Blackbirds


CAPO: 2nd Fret



INTRO: Em 

                                     C
The blackbirds came at dusk and they roosted in the cane
F                            C
Raised such a ruckus that it shook my windowpane
        Em                       C
And I'm covered up in dirt and I stink of kerosene
       F             C               E
And no matter what I do, I can't get clean


Em                             C
Last thing I remember was your footsteps in the hall
F                          C
Whisky in your voice and a shotgun on the wall
            Em                              C
Now there's shadows in the shadows, there's trouble in the cane
            F                  C                E
And there's things you do that you just can't explain


CHORUS:
  C                     Em
Uneasy lies the head, unfaithful is the heart
  C              D           Em
Ungrateful and unlucky and untrue
    C                         Em                 C
And no one saw me coming, and no one saw me go
         D         Em
Only the blackbirds and you


                                     C
Come harvest in the cane fields, the sky turns black with smoke
     F                           C
So I took our father's gun and a heavy piece of rope
      Em                                C
And I left you lying there, like rotten fruit upon the ground
      F                 C                      E
And I lit a torch and I burned the whole thing down


CHORUS:
  C                     Em
Uneasy lies the head, unfaithful is the heart
  C              D           Em
Ungrateful and unlucky and untrue
    C                         Em                 C
And no one saw me coming, and no one saw me go
         D         Em
Only the blackbirds and you


INSTRUMENTAL: C   D   C   D    Em


                            C                       F
Our father was a farmer, he planted fields of cane
                                C
He planted seeds of evil and we harvested the shame
        Em                                C
Oh, and I'm the last one standing, there's no one left to tell
         F                  C               E
And when it's my time, I'll see you both in hell


CHORUS:
  C                     Em
Uneasy lies the head, unfaithful is the heart
  C              D           Em
Ungrateful and unlucky and untrue
    C                         Em                 C
And no one saw me coming, and no one saw me go
         D         Em
Only the blackbirds and you
    C                         Em                 C
And no one saw me coming, and no one saw me go
         D              Em
Only the blackbirds and you

This is the wrong key. Clearly this person had to write it using an Em because they can't play an F#m bar chord.

When played with a Capo on the 2nd Fret the Key is perfectly correct. Your 1 star rating is obviously a "spite" rating.
