INTRO:
[Am] [Am7]  
[F] [Fadd9]  
VERSE 1:
In the [Am]ironbound section near [Am7]Avenue L
Where the [F]Portuguese women come to [Fadd9]see what you sell
The c[Am]louds so low the [Am7]morning so slow
As the [F]wires cut through the [Fadd9]sky
VERSE 2:
The [Am]beams and bridges cut the [Am7]light on the ground
Into [F]little triangles and the [Fadd9]rails run round
Through the [Am]rust and the heat the [Am7]light and sweet
Coffee [F] color of her [Fadd9]skin
CHORUS 1:
[Em] Bound up in [F]wire and [Em]fate
Watching her [F]walk him up to the [Em]gate
In front of the [F]ironbound school yard
VERSE 3:
[Am]Kids will grow like [Am7]weeds on a fence
She says they [F]look for the light they [Fadd9]try to make sense
They [Am]come up through the cracks, like [Am7]grass on the tracks
[F] She touches him good[Fadd9]bye
CHORUS 2:
[Em] Steps off the [F]curb and into the [Em]street
The blood and [F]feathers near her [Em]feet
Into the [F]ironbound market
INTERLUDE:
[Am] [C] [G] [C]  
VERSE 4:
In the [Am]ironbound section near [Am7]Avenue L
Where the [F]Portuguese women come to [Fadd9]see what you sell
The c[Am]louds so low the [Am7]morning so slow
As the [F]wires cut through the [Fadd9]sky
CHORUS 3:
[Em] She stops at the [F]stall, fingers the [Em]ring
Opens her [F]purse, feels a [Em]longing
Away from the [F]ironbound border
INTERLUDE:
Am C G C (play 4x)
FINALE (play 2x):
[A]Fancy [A7sus2]poulty [A]parts sold [A7sus2]here
[F]Breasts and [G9]thighs and [F]hearts[G9]
[Cm7]Backs are cheap and [F]wings are [F6]nearly
AND CONTINUE (play 4x):
[A]free, [A7sus2] [A] [A7sus2] nearly
[F]free, [G9] [F] [G9] nearly
REPEAT AND FADE TO END:
[A] [A7sus2] [A] [A7sus2]  
[F] [G9] [F] [G9]
