Bird on the Wire  Leonard Cohen

Like a b[A]ird on the w[E]ire
Like a dr[A]unk in some old midnight ch[D]oir
I have tr[A]ied in my w[E]ay to be fr[A]ee[Asus4] [A] [E]
Like a w[A]orm on a h[E]ook
Like a m[A]onk bending over the b[D]ook
It was the sh[A]ape, the shape of our l[E]ove twisted m[A]e[Asus4] [A] [Asus2]
[D]If I, if I have been unk[A]ind
I hope that you c[Bm]an just let it go right on b[A]y
[D]If I, if I have been untr[A]ue
It's just that I thought a l[Bm]over had to be some kind of liar t[E]oo[Esus4] [E]
Like a little baby, stillborn
Like a beast with his horn
I have torn everyone who reached out for me
But I swear, I swear by this song
I swear by all that I have done wrong
I will make it all up to thee
I saw a beggar, he was standing there on his wooden crutch
He cries out to me, "Hey, you must learn not to ask for so much "
Another pretty woman, waiting there in her darkened door
She cries out to me, "Hey, why not ask for just a little bit more?"
Like a bird on the wire
Like a drunk in some old midnight choir
I have tr[A]ied in my w[E]ay to be fr[D]ee[A]
