Bird On A Wire

Johnny Cash

 FCFBb
Like a bird, on a wire, like a drunk in a midnight choir.
 FCFsus4F
I have tried in my ways to be free.   
 FCF
Like a fish, on a hook, like a knight in some old fashioned
 Bb
 book.
 FCFsus4F
I have saved all my ribbons for thee.   
 BbF
                                    And if I, if I have been unkind.
 GmF
I just hope you, will let it go by.
 BbF
And if I, if I have been untrue.
 GmC
I just hope you know, it was never to you.
 FCFBb
                                    Like a baby, stillborn, like a beast with his horn.
 FCFsus4F
I have torn everyone who reached out to me.     
 FCFBb
But I swear,by this song,and by all that I have done wrong.
 FCFsus4F
 I'll make it all up to thee.   
 BbF
                                    I saw a young man, leaning on his wooden crutch.
 GmF
He called out to me, don't ask for so much.
 BbF
And a young woman, leaning in her darkened door.
 GmC
She cried out to me, hey why not ask for more.
 FCFBb
                                    Like a bird, on a wire, like a drunk in a midnight choir.
 FCBbF
I have tried in my ways to be free.
