Walking On A Wire  Richard Thompson

3--3--2--0----3---|        Dsus4  Cadd9

I [G]hand you my [D]ball and [Em]chain
You just [G]hand me that [D]Same old re[C]frain
I'm [G]walking on a wire
I'm [D]walking on a wire
And I'm [Am]falling--[G]-  [Dsus4]      [Cadd9]
I wish I could please you tonight
But my medicine just won't come right
I'm walking on a wire
I'm walking on a wire
And I'm [Am]falling--[G]-

[D]Too many [A]steps to take
[C#m]Too many [G#m]spells to break
[Bm]Too many [C#]nights awake and [F#m]no one else
[D]This grindstone's [A]wearing me
[C#m]Your claws are [G#m]tearing me
[C#m]Don't use me [B]endlessly
It's [A]too [Em]long, [Bm]Too [D]long to my[A]self

Where's the justice, and where's the sense
When all the pain's on my side of the fence
I'm walking on a wire
I'm walking on a wire
And I'm falling---
