Bird On The Wire  Joe Cocker

Capo II*
[C] [G] [C] [F] [C] [G] [C] [G]  
Like a [C]bird on the [G]wire,
Like a [C]drunk in a midnight [F]choir
I have [C]tried in my [G]way to be [C]free.[G]
Like a [C]worm on a [G]hook,
Like a [C]knight from some old fashioned [F]book
I have [C]saved all my [G]ribbons for [C]thee.[C7]
If [F]I, if I have been un[C]kind,[C7]
Well I [F]hope that you can just let it go [C]by.[C7]
And if [F]I, if I have been un[C]true
Well I [F]hope you know it was never to [G]you.[G7]
Like a [C]baby, still[G]born,
Like a [C]beast with his [F]horn
I have [C]torn ever[G]yone who reached out for [C]me.[G]
But I [C]swear by this [G]song
And by [C]all that I have done [F]wrong
I[C] will ma[G]ke it all [C]up to[C7] thee.
I saw a [F]beggar leaning on his wooden [C]crutch,[C7]
Well he [F]said to me, "You must not ask for so [C]much."[C7]
And a pretty [F]woman standing by her darkened [C]door,[C7]
She [F]said to me, "why not ask for [G]more?"[G7]
Oh like a [C]bird on the [G]wire,
Like a [C]drunk in a midnight [F]choir
I have [C]tried in my [G]way to be [C]free[F] [C] [G] [C]
