                Bird On The Wire chords
Fairport Convention (Leonard Cohen)

Capo IV

D A D G D A D

       D         A
Like a bird on a wire
       D                   G
Like a drunk in a midnight choir
       D           A
I have tried in my way
      D
To be free

       D         A
Like a worm on a hook
       D                              G
Like a knight from some old-fashioned book
       D            A
I have saved all my ribbons
    D    (Dsus4 D)*
For thee

   G             D
If I have been unkind
       Em                      D  (Dsus4 D)*
I hope you will just let it go by
       G             D
And if I have been untrue
           Em                   A   (Asus4 A)*
I hope you know it was not unto you

       D         A
Like a baby stillborn
       D               G
Like a beast with it's horns
       D          A
I have torn every one
                    D   (Dsus4 D)*
And reached out for thee

       D             A
Let us swear by this song
       D               G
And by all I have done wrong
       D            A
That I will make it all
      D   (Dsus4 D)*
Up to thee

        G                     D           (Dsus4 D)*
I saw a beggar leaning on his wooden cross
        Em                   D        (Dsus4 D)*
He said to me do not ask for someone?
      G                     D
And a woman standing in her darkened door
    Em                               A    (Asus4 A)*
She cried to me hey, why not ask for more?

       D         A
Like a bird on a wire
       D                   G
Like a drunk in a midnight choir
       D           A
I have tried in my way
      D
To be free

* optional for effect
