Well they got a little game called five card draw
They take it serious in Arkansas
You can make a little money wagerin' on cards
You can't get to heaven livin' this hard
Deliver me from my sorrow and shame
Release me from my burden and pain

It's a one eyed jack the suicide king
The ace of spades and two black queens
Never draw to an inside straight
I feel a ten's knockin' at the gate
Deliver me from my sorrow and shame
Release me from my burden and pain

Ooh Blackbird blackbird fly away home
Say a prayer over Saint John's bones
Tell the gambler's their gonna die alone
Blackbird blackbird fly away home
Ooh Blackbird blackbird come back again
Don't tell momma where I've been
I'm goin' to the rive I'm gonna jump in
Ohhh Blackbird blackbird come back again

It's an ace high straight and all the same suit
Read 'em and weep this hand can't lose
Somebody said it ain't good enough
'Cause that don't beat a Mississippi flush
Mr. Ledbetter will you tell me again
What's a Mississippi flush and how's it beat this hand
He said they don't ask questions in the graveyard
It's a small revolver and any five cards
Deliver me from my sorrow and shame
Release me from my burden and pain

Ohh Blackbird blackbird fly away home
Say a prayer over Saint John's bones
Tell the gambler's their gonna die alone
Blackbird blackbird fly away home
Ohh Blackbird blackbird come back again
Don't tell momma where I've been
I'm goin' to the rive I'm gonna jump in
Ohhh Blackbird blackbird come back again
