RED WINGED BLACKBIRD
(David Francey)

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.

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.

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.


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

Thought I heard a red winged blackbird,
Red winged blackbird down my road.
Thought I heard a red winged blackbird,
Red winged black bird down my road.


He'll be in there singing his heart out,
He'll be telling me stories too,
Of where he went to winter last year,
Of how he's going back there too.

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.

I just copied them from David's site. But check him out, anway. He is the most underrated songwriter in America.

Someone else online asked me to suss this out for 'em (written by David Francey and covered very well by James Keelaghan) so I figured while I had 'em 'out' I'd rub 'em over this place...

I play it in E (Dadgad tuning capo'd 2nd fret)

The chorus is mostly playing the 'lead' line on the "D" and "A" strings

Of where he went to winter last year
How he's going back there too

Play it often, play it LOUD!

Another seasonally appropriate song. Think I need to learn this one to go with my own "Redwing".
