"Blackbird Song"
Pack your things

Leave somehow


Blackbird song
 

Is over now
Mouths are dry

 

River runs


 

Hands are tied
 

 

Preachers son
Pack your things

 

Leave somehow

Blackbird song

Is over now
Don't be scared

I'm still here
No more time

For crying dear

The major meaning The
Crow is to be a guide and the Gods' messenger.

The crow was also linked to Bran, God of the sailors (bran means crow in gaelic) : the sailors had crows on their boats.
They released them at sea. They flied in the direction of the earth. The same idea is in the Bible (after the flood Noah released first a crow),in India and in Norway.
In Greece the crow foretold the future : a raven stood near the Pythie of Delphes  
during her prediction. It is generally said in Greece that the white crow guides messengers.
This function of messenger of the Gods (especially Apollo's messenger),
 may have its origin in a greek legend
.
Coronis was unfaithful to Apollo, and a crow informed him. According to Ovide, the crow was originally white. Apollo made him become black to punish him for bringing bad news. Apollo even took a form of crow to guide Santorin's people to Cyrena. And two
 crows showed Alexander the Great the road to Amon's sanctuary.

In the mithraic cult, Sol(the God Sun)
 
entrust the crow with telling Mithra to sacrifice the bull.
In Japan, crows are also divine messengers, and in China they are the faerie queen
 
Hsi-Wang-Mu's messengers.
They also bring her food and are a good omen.
