Ironboundfancy Poultry

Suzanne Vega

 FFadd9

VERSE 1:
 AmAm7
  In the ironbound section near Avenue L
 FFadd9
  Where the Portuguese women come to see what you sell
 AmAm7
  The clouds so low the morning so slow
 FFadd9
  As the wires cut through the sky

VERSE 2:
 AmAm7
  The beams and bridges cut the light on the ground
 FFadd9
  Into little triangles and the rails run round
 AmAm7
  Through the rust and the heat the light and sweet
 FFadd9
  Coffee    color of her skin

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

VERSE 3:
 AmAm7
  Kids will grow like weeds on a fence
 FFadd9
  She says they look for the light they try to make sense
 AmAm7
  They come up through the cracks, like grass on the tracks
 FFadd9
    She touches him goodbye

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

INTERLUDE:
 AmCGC

VERSE 4:
 AmAm7
  In the ironbound section near Avenue L
 FFadd9
  Where the Portuguese women come to see what you sell
 AmAm7
  The clouds so low the morning so slow
 FFadd9
  As the wires cut through the sky

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

INTERLUDE:
Am C G C (play 4x)

FINALE (play 2x):
 AA7sus2AA7sus2
  Fancy poulty  parts sold here
 FG9FG9
  Breasts and   thighs and hearts    
 Cm7FF6
  Backs are cheap and wings are nearly

AND CONTINUE (play 4x):
 AA7sus2AA7sus2
  free,                        nearly
 FG9FG9
  free,                        nearly

REPEAT AND FADE TO END:
 FG9FG9
