Bird on the Wire  Leonard Cohen



Like a b[A]ird on the w[E]ire
Like a dr[A]unk in a midnight ch[D]oir
I have tr[A]ied in my w[E]ay to be fr[A]ee  [Asus4]        [A]
Like a w[A]orm on a h[E]ook
Like a kn[A]ight from some old fashioned b[D]ook
I have s[A]aved all my r[E]ibbons for th[A]ee   [Asus4]        [A]
[D]If I, if I have been unk[A]ind
I h[Bm]ope that you can just let it go b[A]y
[D]If I, if I have been untr[A]ue
I h[Bm]ope you know it was never t[E]o you [Esus4]        [E]
Like a b[A]aby, stillb[E]orn
Like a b[A]east with his h[D]orn
I have t[A]orn every[E]one who reached out for m[A]e   [Asus4]        [A]
But I sw[A]ear by this s[E]ong
And by [A]all that I have done wr[D]ong
I w[A]ill make it [E]all up to th[A]ee  [Asus4]        [A]
[D]I saw a beggar leaning on his wooden cr[A]utch
He s[Bm]aid to me, "You must not ask for s[A]o much."
[D]And a pretty woman leaning in her darkened d[A]oor
She cr[Bm]ied to me, "Hey, why not ask f[E]or more[Esus4]?"      [E]
Oh like a b[A]ird on the w[E]ire
Like a dr[A]unk in a midnight ch[D]oir
I have tr[A]ied in my w[E]ay to be fr[D]ee [A]
