[Intro]
Em C Bm
              x2
Em A G

[Verse]
Em
She's black and red and built just like a spy plane
Em
Extracting information from my mind
D                                     C
The photograph she takes into her mainframe
Em                                       D
For your eyes only lonely cold war time (of mine)

[Pre-Chorus]
D
Now after all the city falls just like the night or an angel does

[Chorus]
G
Leave me here alone to collect my things
C                                     Em
She sees music in the terror she brings
           D            C
And like a technicolor dream
             Em                D
The light in your eyes blinded me
D
From the perch she softly smiled
                    Em
My blackbird softly smiled


Em C Bm
              x2
Em A G

[Verse]
Em
She's built for speed and made for keeping secrets
Em
Stalking dark and in these skies
D                                    C
From miles above no other ones can detect her
Em                                  D
My blackbird blows a kiss that ends mankind

[Pre-Chorus]
D
And all this time there is no crime of treason that she hasn't seen

[Chorus]
G
Leave me here alone to collect my things
C                                     Em
She sees music in the terror she brings
           D            C
And like a technicolor dream
             Em                D
The light in your eyes blinded me
D
From the perch she softly smiled
                    Em
My blackbird softly smiled

[Bridge]
Em C Em C Am

Em C G                  Am      Em
SR71 blackbird from the heavens above
          C         G    D              Em
She's the only one, only spy I ever loved

          G          D
She's the only spy I ever loved

[Pre-Chorus]
D
Now after all the city falls just like the night or an angel does

[Chorus]
G
Leave me here alone to collect my things
C                                     Em
She sees music in the terror she brings
           D           C
And like a technicolor dream
             Em                D
The light in your eyes blinded me
D
From the perch she softly smiled
                    Em
My blackbird softly smiled

[Outro]
Em C G
Em C G

Em C G                  Am      Em
SR71 blackbird from the heavens above
          C         G    D              Em
She's the only one, only spy I ever loved
