 Bird On A Wire


 Recorded by Reckless Kelly


 


 Intro.: (D) x 4


 


 He (Bm)offered them a good ride on to (F#m)help them save the family farm


 For (D)ergo he was damn near good as (F#m)rain


 Then (Bm)came the time for them to choose an (F#m)offer they could not refuse


 With (D)easy-outs and capital (F#m)gain


 


 No (Em)one has a suspicious feelin, you (F#m)really couldn't call it stealin'


 He (D)did it with a style most would ad-(F#m)mire


 But (Bm)he had picked 'em (G)off like a (A)bird on a (D)wire


 


 (Chorus)


 (G)He had open (A)fire on a (D)bird on a (G)wire


 A (D)nudge a wink and (A)they'd be gettin' (Bm)higher


 (G)He whipped out his (A)fountain pen, while the (D)tears were gettin' (G)drier


 And (Bm)then he picked 'em (G)off like a (A)bird on a (D)wire


 


 There (Em)ain't a kid with a BB gun or an (F#m)alley cat with room to run


 Who could (A)bring 'em down like they was out for (F#m)hire


 Yeah, (Bm)he could pick 'em (G)off like a (A)bird on a (D)wire


 


 Inst.: (Em) (F#m) (D) (F#m) (Bm) (G) (A) (D)


 


 (Bm)He went golfin' everyday, they (F#m)voted while he was away


 Though (D)technically he's chairman of the (F#m)board


 (Bm)They had become avaricious, (F#m)leavin' him to do the dishes


 (D)They introduced him to his new land-(F#m)lord


 


 Who (Em)told him his time came and went their (F#m)office in the orient


 Would (D)send him checks for soon he would re-(F#m)tire


 Yeah, (Bm)they had picked him (G)off like a (A)bird on a (D)wire


 


 (Chorus)


 (G)They had open (A)fire on the (D)bird on a (G)wire


 (D)He was sleeping (A)they were getting (Bm)higher


 They (G)polished up their (A)Macintosh while his (D)ass was in the (G)mire


 And (Bm)then they picked him (G)off like a (A)bird on a (D)wire


 


 There (Em)ain't a kid with a BB gun or an (F#m)alley cat with room to run


 Who could (D)bring 'em down like they was out for (F#m)hire


 Yeah, (Bm)they could pick 'em (G)off like a (A)bird on a (D)wire
