[Verse 1]
       Em                             C                     Cadd2  C
The blackbirds came at dusk and they roosted in the cane,
F                      Fsus2 F            C                 Cadd2  C
  Raised such a ruckus,         that it shook my windowpane,
           Em                       C                Cadd2  C
And I'm covered up in dirt, and I stink of kerosene,
         F           C                Em    Esus4 Em  Em   Esus4    Em
And no matter what I do, I can't get clean!          | /  /  /   /__/ |


[Verse 2]
 Em                               C                      Cadd2  C
Last thing I remember was your footsteps in the hall,
  F                   Fsus2 F           C                Cadd2  C
Whisky in your voice,          and a shotgun on the wall,
              Em                               C
Now there's shadows in the shadows, there's trouble in the cane,
               F                  C                   Em
And there's things you do ..that you just can't ex - plain!


[Chorus]
       C                         Em
Un - easy lies the head, un - faithful is the heart,
       C                  D              Em
Un - grateful, and un - lucky, and un - true,
    C                       Em                 Em/A  Em/B
And no one saw me come, and no one saw me go,
C               D       Em                 Esus4 Em
   Only the blackbirds,    ...and you!


[Verse 3]
       Em                            C
Come harvest in the cane fields the sky turns black with smoke,
       F                   Fsus2 F         C                   Cadd2 C
So I took our father's gun,        and a heavy piece of rope,
       Em                                 C                    Cadd2 C
And I left you lying there, like rotten fruit upon the ground,
       F                   C                     Em
And I lit a torch, and I burned the whole thing down!


[Chorus]
       C                         Em
Un - easy lies the head, un - faithful is the heart,
       C                  D              Em
Un - grateful, and un - lucky, and un - true,
    C                       Em                 Em/A  Em/B
And no one saw me come, and no one saw me go,
C               D       Em                 Esus4 Em
   Only the blackbirds,    ...and you!


[Break]
C                   D
    Ah, ah, ah---!     Ah, ah - ah, ah---!
C                   D
    Ah, ah, ah---!     Ah, ah - ah---!

[Verse 4]
     Em                        C                       Cadd2  C
Our father was a farmer, he planted fields of cane,
     F                              C                  Cadd2  C
He planted seeds of evil, and we harvested the shame,
        Em                                  C                  Cadd2 C
Oh, but I'm the last one standing, there's no one left to tell,
     F                  C                   Em
And when it's my time I'll see you both in hell!


[Chorus]
       C                         Em
Un - easy lies the head, un - faithful is the heart,
       C                  D              Em
Un - grateful, and un - lucky, and un - true,
    C                       Em                 Em/A  Em/B
And no one saw me come, and no one saw me go,
C               D       Em                 Esus4 Em
   Only the blackbirds,    ...and you!



[Coda]
    C                   Cadd2  C     Em                Em/A  Em/B
And no one saw me come,          and no one saw me go,
C               D                Em       Esus4 Em
   Only the blackbirds   ...and you-----!
