David Gray is an incredible songwriter with a great voice. He has three CDs out, but for some reason no one knows him. I would love to see more of his work transcribed here, especially his more difficult stuff.
It's basically C and G with a slight variation on G (G*), and an A thrown in toward the end. (note: G* is just G played with your finger taken off the A string)
The Cords are C, G, G*, except for one part shown below, where an A is thrown in when "birds without wings" is repeated
Wishing that something would happen a change in this place 'cause I'm tearing off the fancy wrapping find an empty package
Take for a while your trumpet from your lip loosen your hold, loosen your grip on your old ways that have fallen out of step in a changing time hoist a new flag hoist a new flag
Angry sun burn down judging us all guilty of neglect and disrespect and thinking small And death by boredom and death by greed if we can't stop taking more than we need
