intro: Am
Verse:
[Am]Eyes to take you dancing,
[Dm/A]Mouth to leave your wife,
g5 em
Legs to run away with, and you wonder why
[Am]Heart that makes you bypass [Dm/A]every other girl
g5 em
Smile that keeps you grinning at the madness of this world
Chorus:
Am em
And like the blackbird on the wire
Am em
I will not take prey on you,
em Am
You wouldn't want me to
B em
For I'm too soft for such a thing
Am em
And like the blackbird on the wire
Am em
I just watch you by
em Am
The tears I knew I'd cry
B em
Fall unnoticed down below.
(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)
