Bird On The Wire

	  		


C G C F  C G C  G 

       C           G 
Like a bird on the wire, 
       C                   F 
Like a drunk in a midnight choir 
       C           G         C    G 
I have tried in my way to be free. 

       C         G 
Like a worm on a hook, 
       C                              F 
Like a knight from some old fashioned book 
       C            G           C    C7 
I have saved all my ribbons for thee. 

   F                   C    C7 
If I, if I have been unkind, 
       F                                C  C7 
Well I hope that you can just let it go by. 
       F                   C 
And if I, if I have been untrue 
       F                             G   G7 
Well I hope you know it was never to you. 

       C          G 
Like a baby, stillborn, 
       C              F 
Like a beast with his horn 
       C        G                        C  G 
I have torn everyone who reached out for me. 

      C             G 
But I swear by this song 
       C                    F 
And by all that I have done wrong 
 C       G         C    C7 
I will make it all up to thee. 

        F                            C      C7 
I saw a beggar leaning on his wooden crutch, 
        F                                    C     C7 
Well he said to me, "You must not ask for so much." 
             F                              C    C7 
And a pretty woman standing by her darkened door, 
    F                            G     G7 
She said to me, "why not ask for more?"  

          C           G 
Oh like a bird on the wire, 
       C                   F 
Like a drunk in a midnight choir 
       C           G         C     F C G  C 
I have tried in my way to be free
