Beatles Album: The Beatles AKA The White Album : Track 11
Lyrics: Lennon, McCartney
The lyrics to Blackbird were written by Paul McCartney. Like so many of the songs on the white album the lyrics to Blackbird were inspired by the Beatles time in Rishikesh. Paul heard a blackbird singing one morning and tried to mimic its song. He is very proud of the song and feels that it is one of his best ones.
