  THE BEATLES - BLACKBIRD (Lennon/McCartney) From THE WHITE ALBUM.
                Released on 22nd November 1968.

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







  While in Rishikesh, India, in the spring of 1968, The Beatles 
  could only use their Martin D-28 guitars. Being Donovan there  
  too with his Gibson J-45 he gave John some fingerpicking clues. 
  But we shouldn't forget that in the UK there has always been a 
  strong liking for folk music and lots of great guitar players 
  working the folk-club circuit. Bert Jansch, John Renbourn and 
  Davey Graham to mention a few. John and Paul (oddly enough, not 
  so much George, who more easily might have got in touch with the
  "Travis picking" techniques through his great rockabilly passion 
  and proficiency) both learned to pick, not only "Travis picking" 
  style, but also other interesting picking patterns which they'd
  often use. John's DEAR PRUDENCE, JULIA, HAPPINESS IS A WARM GUN,
  SUN KING, and later WORKING CLASS HERO, LOOK AT ME (composed in 
  Rishikesh) and Paul's YESTERDAY, MOTHER NATURE'S SON, HER MAJESTY 
  and later CALICO SKIES and JENNY WREN among many others.
  BLACKBIRD was written by Paul in Scotland and is based on an open G
  pedal point, with two note chords in tenths and it's one of his
  best songs ever. Some people say that he used D tuning on sixth
  string, but I can't see why should he. I think there is not any 
  advantage doing it so.
   





  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 the dark black night.

  Blackbird fly Blackbird fly
  Into the light of the dark black night.

  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.
