G  C  Am7  D7sus-D7

G        C            Am7   D7sus-D7
Too many birds in one tree
G        C            Am7   D7sus-D7
Too many birds in one tree
G          C       Am7          D7sus-D7
The sky is full of black and screaming leaves
G          C       Am7                 D7sus-D7
The sky is full of black and screaming

G            C      Am7          D7sus-D7
And one more bird, then one more bird
G            C         Am7      D7sus-D7
And one last bird, and another
G             C         Am7   D7sus-D7
One last blackbird, without a place to land
G             C    Am7       D7sus-D7
One last blackbird without a place to be
G       C     Am7         D7sus-D7
Turns around, in hopes to find
G            C         Am7    D7sus-D7
The place it last knew rest

G        C    Am7         D7sus-D7
Oh blackbird, black rain burn
G       C         Am7           D7sus-D7
This is not where you last knew rest
G            C     Am7         D7sus-D7
You fly all night, to sleep on stone
G              C                Am7          D7sus-D7
That heartless rest that in the morn will be gone
G           C                 Am7
You fly all night to sleep on stone
                 D7sus-D7
To return to the tree with
         G               C               Am7     D7sus-D7
Too many birds, too many birds, too many birds

G  C  Am7  D7sus-D7

G      C    Am7     D7sus-D7
If, if you, if you could
G            C     Am7   D7sus-D7
If you could only
G            C        Am7   D7sus-D7
If you could only stop
G            C         Am7   D7sus-D7
If you could only stop your
G            C              Am7    D7sus-D7
If you could only stop your heart
G            C              Am7      D7sus-D7
If you could only stop your heartbeat
G            C              Am7         D7sus-D7
If you could only stop your heartbeat for
G            C              Am7           D7sus-D7
If you could only stop your heartbeat for one heart
G            C              Am7              D7sus-D7
If you could only stop your heartbeat for one heartbeat

G  C  Am7  D7sus-D7
End on G.
