Subject: RE: Lyr Req: If I were a Blackbird [not DT]
I read somewhere (can't remember where) that "If I were a Blackbird" was composed almost entirely of "floating verses" - as are many lovely songs. It all comes together very nicely in this one. I love Andy M. Stewart's version although to me it really is a woman's song and is better sung from a woman's point of view.
