VERSE

        G             C
Well it tastes like a Sunday, 

                D            Bm
There should be music in the front room, 

        C         Bm               D
and the markets a'milling with the people in the afternoon.

              G              C               D        Bm
And there's a question to be asked if you're drinking alone,

          C              Bm                D
It's what horse were you thrown from which riderless goes on? 

C         D

     G                C
O it must have been a near thing, 

       D          Bm
But no novelty to you, 

        C              Bm            D
all the trains and the buses and the cinemas too, 

G                         C         D                Bm
Breaking down, the bloody town, all reared up like a snake, 

    C            Bm         D
For all goodness sake don't touch it or you'll never wake up... 

CHORUS

    C             D        C             D
His father misses him, His mother misses him, 

    Bm             C
His lady dreams of kissing him, 

C             D     Bm         C
Bring the sun back, Bring the sun back, 

C               D
It's been dark, now it's cold, 

         Bm    C
When the night falls,

C             D     Bm         C
Bring the sun back, Bring the sun back, 

C                 D           G
It's a blackbird, he's in the belly.

VERSE
          G          C          D             Bm
Well it's cold, it's cold, it's cold and it's cold, 

             C              Bm         D
But you've a roof over your head and a comfortable bed, 

         G                C             D             Bm
Now I'll be better, I'll be true, doing things like I ought to, 

        C                 Bm             D              
If this bird lands in the black lands of Tulla when it's due... 

    C             D        C             D
His father misses him, His mother misses him, 

    Bm             C
His lady dreams of kissing him, 

C             D     Bm         C
Bring the sun back, Bring the sun back, 

C               D
It's been dark, now it's cold, 

         Bm    C
When the night falls,

C             D     Bm         C
Bring the sun back, Bring the sun back, 

C                 D           G
It's a blackbird, he's in the belly. 

C                 D           G
It's a blackbird, he's in the belly. 

              C          D            G
The night's a blackbird, We're in the belly.
