Two Black Crows in a Blue Sky

key of B♭  (3 capo on G)

He came to me
Like a ghost last night
Like someone you’ve never see
Years of living
Sometimes homeless camps
On the road,  some one night stands
He’s much too young
For to seem this old
Fire’s fading, heart’s growing cold

Chorus
Two black crows
In a blue sky
Can’t be yours even if you try
Two black crows
In a blue sky
That’s a thing your money can’t buy

Yes he found
Some opportunity
Got him famous across the land
His songs were hits
Got some bills in his jeans
But it don’t feel so good being rich
He’s not the man
From those years ago
Looks the same but it ain’t so

Bridge
It’s a sad amen
Having money feels so good
It’s a sad amen and
You know it’s gotta end

INSTRUMENTAL

Ain’t loneliness
That drove him back to me
In his sweat-stained cowboy clothes
Emptied out pockets
Body needs some peace
Love is something that just unfolds
There’s one small thing
He still can’t abide
Money burns him all up inside

Chorus
Two black crows
In a blue sky
Can’t be yours even if you try
Two black crows
In a blue sky
That’s a thing your money can’t buy
