lyrics

Blackbird sitting on the line,
My lover’s gone again, he left me without a dime.
And just when I thought that things were going fine.
Blackbird sitting on the line.

Blackbird sitting on the line,
I was so cold to him, I was so unkind.
He was the best man I thought I’d ever find.
Blackbird sitting on the line.

Tell me, what do I do this time?
What do I do this time?
You’re out there singing your song
while I’m in here crying.
Blackbird sitting on the line.

Blackbird sitting on the line,
I’ve been so careless, I’ve been so blind.
I told him I was sorry, told him I was trying.
Blackbird sitting on the line.

Blackbird sitting on the line,
Now I’m so lonesome, so broke up inside.
How do I get me a little piece of mind?
Blackbird sitting on the line.
