  [F]      [Fadd9]                             

VERSE 1:
  In the [Am]ironbound section near [Am7]Avenue L
  Where the [F]Portuguese women come to [Fadd9]see what you sell
  The c[Am]louds so low the [Am7]morning so slow
  As the [F]wires cut through the [Fadd9]sky


VERSE 2:
  The [Am]beams and bridges cut the [Am7]light on the ground
  Into [F]little triangles and the [Fadd9]rails run round
  Through the [Am]rust and the heat the [Am7]light and sweet
  Coffee  [F]  color of her [Fadd9]skin


CHORUS 1:
  [Em]    Bound up in [F]wire and [Em]fate
  Watching her [F]walk him up to the [Em]gate
  In front of the [F]ironbound school yard


VERSE 3:
  [Am]Kids will grow like [Am7]weeds on a fence
  She says they [F]look for the light they [Fadd9]try to make sense
  They [Am]come up through the cracks, like [Am7]grass on the tracks
  [F]  She touches him good[Fadd9]bye


CHORUS 2:
  [Em]   Steps off the [F]curb and into the [Em]street
  The blood and [F]feathers near her [Em]feet
  Into the [F]ironbound market


INTERLUDE:
  [Am]   [C]  [G]  [C]                            

VERSE 4:
  In the [Am]ironbound section near [Am7]Avenue L
  Where the [F]Portuguese women come to [Fadd9]see what you sell
  The c[Am]louds so low the [Am7]morning so slow
  As the [F]wires cut through the [Fadd9]sky


CHORUS 3:
  [Em]   She stops at the [F]stall, fingers the [Em]ring
  Opens her [F]purse, feels a [Em]longing
  Away from the [F]ironbound border


INTERLUDE:
Am C G C (play 4x)


FINALE (play 2x):
  [A]Fancy [A7sus2]poulty  [A]parts sold [A7sus2]here
  [F]Breasts and   [G9]thighs and [F]hearts   [G9]
  [Cm7]Backs are cheap and [F]wings are [F6]nearly


AND CONTINUE (play 4x):
  [A]free,  [A7sus2]        [A]       [A7sus2]       nearly
  [F]free,  [G9]        [F]       [G9]       nearly


REPEAT AND FADE TO END:
  [F]       [G9]        [F]       [G9]
