Lyrics

Blackbirds
© Jeri Katherine Howell

Oh the blackbirds are arriving (repeat)
I’m a-goin’ on over home

To watch them feed and scream
To watch them feed and scream
Oh the blackbird screams so loud
The blackbirds are arriving

Oh the blackbirds are arriving (repeat)
I’m a-goin’ on over home

To feel their fine, black feathers (repeat)
I hold them in the palm of my hand
The blackbirds are arriving

Blackbird scraped my finger
Yes it scraped my wedding band finger
And the blood drips down and puddles in my palm
The blackbirds are arriving

They drink from the puddle and fly away (repeat)
And their red wing shines so bright
The blackbirds are arriving

The blood of the springtime brings life (repeat)
The one think I know most of all
Is I’ll fly
Yes, the red-winged blackbird is my call
The blackbirds are arriving
