Tom: Em
CAPO: 2

Intro: Em  

                                     C 
The blackbirds came at dusk and they roosted in the cane 
F                            C 
Raised such a ruckus that it shook my windowpane 
        Em                       C 
And I'm covered up in dirt and I stink of kerosene 
       F             C               E 
And no matter what I do, I can't get clean 


Em                             C 
Last thing I remember was your footsteps in the hall 
F                          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                E 
And there's things you do that you just can't explain 


C Em Uneasy lies the head, unfaithful is the heart C D Em Ungrateful and unlucky and untrue C Em C And no one saw me coming, and no one saw me go D Em Only the blackbirds and you
C Come harvest in the cane fields, the sky turns black with smoke F C So I took our father's gun and a heavy piece of rope Em C And I left you lying there, like rotten fruit upon the ground F C E And I lit a torch and I burned the whole thing down
C Em Uneasy lies the head, unfaithful is the heart C D Em Ungrateful and unlucky and untrue C Em C And no one saw me coming, and no one saw me go D Em Only the blackbirds and you
Instrumental: C D C D Em C F Our father was a farmer, he planted fields of cane C He planted seeds of evil and we harvested the shame Em C Oh, and I'm the last one standing, there's no one left to tell F C E And when it's my time, I'll see you both in hell
C Em Uneasy lies the head, unfaithful is the heart C D Em Ungrateful and unlucky and untrue C Em C And no one saw me coming, and no one saw me go D Em Only the blackbirds and you C Em C And no one saw me coming, and no one saw me go D Em Only the blackbirds and you
