-----------------------

Intro

Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to fly
All your life,
You were only waiting for this moment to arise

Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these sunken eyes and learn to see
All your life,
You were only waiting for this moment to be free

Blackbird fly, Blackbird fly
Into the light of a dark black night

Solo: (1 verse)

Blackbird fly, Blackbird fly
Into the light of a dark black night

Instrumental

Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to fly
All your life,
You were only waiting for this moment to arise

You were only waiting for this moment to arise
You were only waiting for this moment to arise

Blackbird - The Beatles
Blackbird - The Beatles

Blackbird is a Beatles song from the double-disc album The Beatles (also known as The White Album). Blackbird was written by Paul McCartney, though credited to Lennon–McCartney.

McCartney explained on Chaos and Creation at Abbey Road, aired in 2005, that the guitar accompaniment for "Blackbird" was inspired by J.S. Bach's Bourrée in E minor, a well known lute piece, often played on the classical guitar.
