Verse:

Am
Eyes to take you dancing,
Dm/A
Mouth to leave your wife,
g5                     em
Legs to run away with, and you wonder why

Am                          Dm/A
Heart that makes you bypass every other girl
g5                                   em
Smile that keeps you grinning at the madness of this world

Chorus:

             Am               em
And like the blackbird on the wire
Am              em
I will not take prey on you,
em           Am
You wouldn't want me to
            B               em
For I'm too soft for such a thing
             Am               em
And like the blackbird on the wire
Am     em
I just watch you by
em          Am
The tears I knew I'd cry
       B              em
Fall unnoticed down below.


(as verse)

And with a tongue built from quick silver
And a character of steel
They actually come and ask me how I feel

interlude: verse chords once then chorus chords once  

(as chorus)

And like the blackbird on the wire
I will not take prey on you,
You wouldn't want me to
For I'm too soft for such a thing
And like the blackbird on the wire
I just watch you by
The tears I knew I'd cry
Fall unnoticed down below,

Am
down below,
down below,
down below.
