intro: Am
[Am]Eyes to take you dancing,
[Dm/A]Mouth to leave your wife,
[G5]Legs to run away with, [Em]and you wonder why
[Am]Heart that makes you bypass [Dm/A]every other girl
[G5]Smile that keeps you grinning at the [Em]madness of this world
And like the [Am]blackbird on the [Em]wire
[Am]I will not take [Em]prey on you,
[Em]You wouldn't [Am]want me to
For I'm too [B]soft for such a [Em]thing
And like the [Am]blackbird on the [Em]wire
[Am]I just [Em]watch you by
[Em]The tears I [Am]knew I'd cry
Fall un[B]noticed down be[Em]low.
(as verse)
And with a tongue built from quick silver
And a character of steel
They actually come and ask me how I feel
interlude: verse chords once then chorus chords once
(as chorus)
And like the blackbird on the wire
I will not take prey on you,
You wouldn't want me to
For I'm too soft for such a thing
And like the blackbird on the wire
I just watch you by
The tears I knew I'd cry
Fall unnoticed down below,
[Am]down below,
down below,
down below.
(to Fade)
