black crow lyrics – joni mitchell

there’s a crow flying
black & ragged
tree to tree
he’s black as the highway that’s leading me
now he’s diving down
to pick up on something shiny
i feel like that black crow
flying
in a blue sky

i took the ferry to the highway
then i drove to a pontoon plane
i took a plane to a taxi
and a taxi to a train
i’ve been traveling so long
how’m i ever gonna know my home
when i see it again
i’m like a black crow flying
in a blue blue sky

in search of love & music
my whole life has been
illumination
corruption
and diving diving diving diving
diving down to pick up on every shiny thing
just like that black crow flying
in a blue sky

i looked at the morning
after being up all night
i looked at my haggard face in the bathroom light
i looked out the window
and ii saw that ragged soul take flight
i saw a back crow flying
in a blue sky

oh i’m like a black crow flying
in a blue sky
