The Birds of St. Marks  Jackson Browne

Oh how sad they sound the songs
The queen must sing of dying
A [G]prisoner upon her throne
Of meloncoly [A]sighing
If she could [G]see her mirror [A]now
She would be f[G]ree of those who [A]bow
And scrape the [G]ground benneth her f[A]eet
[D]Silently she walks among her
Dying midnight roses
[G]Watches as each moment goes
That never really [A]know us
And if it [G]seems
She doesn't c[A]are
If she has d[G]reams of no one [A]there
Within the s[G]hadows of her r[A]oom
But a[D]ll my frozen w[G]ords agree and say it's time to
[D]Call back all the [G]birds I sent to fly behind her
[A]Castle walls, and I'm w[D]eary of the n[G]ights I've seen
[A]Inside these empty [D]halls
 -----For break play chords-D then D without F# then with G (first string 3rd fret) then
 chord again---------Play this twice

[D]Wooden lady turn and turn
Among my weary secrets
And w[G]ay within the hours past and other empty p[A]ockets
Maybe we've f[G]ound what we have l[A]ost
When we've u[G]nwound so many c[A]rossed
Intangl[G]ing misunder[A]standing
But a[D]ll my frozen [G]words agree and say it's time to
[D]Call back all the [G]birds I've sent to fly behind her
[A]Castle walls, and I'm [D]weary of the n[G]ights I've seen
[A]Inside these e[D]mpty walls
