lyrics

I am the red-winged blackbirrd
and you might not wanna hear what I have to say
from high up where I am flying
it looks like you've thrown it all away

Lived so long, hand to mouth
now put your mouth to my ear
and tell me that you still want me
tell me you're glad I'm here

Yes I know a thing or two about you
yes I see you when noone is around
I see you in a place where so many have lost their way
and I cannot follow you down

One winter lies behind us
one winter lies ahead
will you come to find me
or will you head south instead

because I am the red-winged blackbird
and you might not wanna hear what I have to say
From high up where I am flying
it looks like you've thrown it all away
