Song Title: Blackberry Blossom
Written by: Michelle Shocked
Album:  Arkansas Traveler (1992)

[Verse 1]
G            D       C               G
Can you tell me what happened to the blossom,
C          G                D
Blackberry blossom when the summertime came?
    G          D               C           G
The blackberry blossom, oh the last time I saw one
    C           G               D              G
Was down in the bramble where I rambled in the spring
The bramble was wild I was torn by the briars
My love he wooed me as I lie there
With a flower in my hair and my cheeks all flashy
        C          G                D          G
Was the Blackberry Blossom from the Blackberry Bush

[Verse 2]
G                 D       C               G
When I picked the berry I didn't miss the blossom
    C          G           D
The blackberry blossom was white as the snow
        G             D         C            G
But the berry that it brings is sweeter than molasses
    C            G           D        G
And black as the wings of an Arkansas crow
The Arkansas crow is a devil and a demon
Known for his cackling and his screaming
Driving away the swallow and the thrush
         C          G               D          G
From the blackberry blossom and the blackberry bush

[Verse 3]
G             D                 C         G
I was picking berries when that crow flew above me
C           G        D
Carrying my lover so far away
    G             D     C          G
Now each spring I lay a blackberry blossom
     C         G            D        G
By a cold gravestone on the Arkansas clay
The Arkansas clay is rocky and hard
With weeds growing over in the old graveyard
And the day settles down to an evening hush
         C         G                D          G
Over the blackberry blossom and the blackberry bush.
