Lila Mccann – Down Came A Blackbird lyrics
(mark spiro/micheal smotherman)

Down came a blackbird
Set on a fence
Talkin' in riddles
Makin' no sense
Cause she's gone
You're baby's gone
Down came a blackbird
Perched on pole
Took out a mirror
And said, "son, behold"
Cause she's gone
Your baby's gone

Gone like a dollar spent on a drink
Head hangin' over the kitchen sink
Gone like the wind through a cabin door
Never gonna blow that way no more
Gone like the song of a mockingbird
Laughing at every little thing he heard
Gone like a dream in a puff of smoke
She ain't comin' back and it ain't no joke
She's gone
You're baby's gone

Down came a blackbird
Set by the fire
Said "the future's comin' at you like a freight train
And you're walkin' a wire"
Cause she's gone
You're baby's gone

Gone like a dollar spent on a drink
Head hangin' over the kitchen sink
Gone like a dream in a puff of smoke
She ain't comin' back and it ain't no joke
She's gone
You're baby's gone

She says she doesn't want a man who hangs around the house
Who doesn't say a word unless he's shootin' off his mouth
There's got to be a better way to be a lovin' wife
If she stays here she'll end up her waitress for life

Down came a blackbird
Set on a fence
Talkin' in riddles
And makin' absolutely perfect sense
Cause she's gone
You're baby's gone

Gone like a dollar spent on a drink
Head hangin' over the kitchen sink
Gone like the wind through a cabin door
Never gonna blow that way no more
Gone like the song of a mockingbird
Laughing at every little thing he heard
Gone like a dream in a puff of smoke
She ain't comin' back and it ain't no joke
She's gone
You're baby's gone

Down came a blackbird
Down came a blackbird
