Intro: 
    D | D | G | G 

Verse:
    D  | D  | G  | G |
    D  | D  | G  | G |
    Em | Em | A  | A |
    Em | G  | Em | A | D |
                             
I know that it is freezing but i think we have to walk 
keep waving at the taxis they keep turning their lights off 
but julie knows a party at some actor's west-side loft
supplies are endless in the evening by the morning they'll be gone

Verse:
    D  | D  | G  | G |
    D  | D  | G  | G |
    Em | Em | A  | A |
    Em | G  | Em | A | D |

When everything is lonely i can be my own best friend
I get a coffee and the paper have my own conversations
with the sidewalk and the pigeons and my window reflection
the mask i polish in the evening by the morning looks like xxxx


Chorus: 
    G  | G  | D  | D  |
    G  | G  | D  | E7 |
    G  | Bm | Em | D  | G |
    Em | G  | Em | A  | D |

And I know you have a heavy heart, I can feel it when we kiss 
So many men stronger than me have thrown their backs out trying to lift it
But me i'm not a gamble you can count on me to split 
The love I sell you in the evening by the morning won't exist

Verse: 
    D  | D  | G  | G |
    D  | D  | G  | G |
    Em | Em | A  | A |
    Em | G  | Em | A | D |
 
You're looking skinny like a model with your eyes all painted black
Just keep going to the bathroom always say you'll be right back
Well it takes one to know one kid i think you've got it bad
But whats so easy in the evening by the morning's such a drag

Verse:
    D  | D  | G  | G |
    D  | D  | G  | G |
    Em | Em | A  | A |
    Em | G  | Em | A | D |

I've got a flask inside my pocket we can share it on the train
And if you promise to stay conscious i will try and do the same
Yeah we might die from medication but we sure killed all the pain
But what was normal in the evening by the morning seems insane


Chorus: 
    G  | G  | D  | D  |
    G  | G  | D  | E7 |
    G  | Bm | Em | D  | G  |
    Em | G  | Em | A  | D  |
    Em | G  | Em | A  | Bm |
    Em | G  | Em | G  | Em | G |
    end in D
 
And i'm not sure what the trouble was that started all of this 
The reasons all have run away but the feeling never did
It's not something i would recommend but it is one way to live
Cause what is simple in the moonlight by the morning never is 
Yeah it was simple in the moonlight now it's so complicated 
It was so simple in the moonlight, so simple in the moonlight, so simple in the moonlight.

  1. wow, great tabs! the only chord i have a problem with is Bm because my hands aren’t big enough to accurately play it, so if anyone as a chord that i can replace it with that would be fantastic. thank you so much !! <3

  2. Max Caufield

    This would make great background music in an indie game. Hm. Can’t put my finger on it.

  3. What the frick. Why are the chords like over the words so I know when to change it while I am singing. I can’t understand this. Also why is blackbird look like sheet music not any other song. Can some help me. Thanks

    • well I don’t know why it’s like this buuuuuut I can tell you that blackbird was meant on the guitar, but that doesn’t mean you can’t play it. That song requires picking and stuff and i guess when the website got ahold of it, it was in sheet form :)

  4. These tabs are great! Love this song <3

    Just wanted to add that it sounds best (and is easier to play, at least to me) if you transpose the chords either two half steps down (-2) or five half steps up (+5) :-) +3 also sounds good but it is a bit more difficult to play.

  5. I just have a tiny suggestion for the chords in the chorus; for the lyrics, “count on me to split” and “is one way to live”, I’d use the chord progression, D, A, G. I think it’s more accurate. Beautiful song, though, and I love how you’ve put it all together. :)

  6. Oh my goodness this is perfect once I figured it out! I actually forgot to look this up for awhile out of fear it wouldn’t be here. But I shouldn’t have doubted. Thank you for putting these :) I love this song
