I'm not too sure about the chorus here, the video I'm watching is poor quality and 
doesn't always show his left hand, and my guitar's out of action right now, so I'm 
doing this completely by ear and what I can see from the YouTube video. If you've 
got any corrections, please post them.

Intro: A

A
On a cool September mornin', in the fall of 2'03,
A                         E                A
A crier from Jerusalem brought the news to me.
      D7
His words were sharp and dreaded, and they made a lonesome sound,
           A
And they snapped my heart in two, like a stick stepped on the ground.
        E
And I cried and cried and cried, at the cutting of the pain,
      A                        E              A
And quietly said goodbye, so long in Jesus' name.

       G              A
Dark bird, watch you fly,
       G               A
Dark bird, to another sky.
          C                              D7
And I'll bet you were a sight, when you hit that cloud of love,
          A                          E         A
And flew out the other side, in the form of a dove.
       A          
Dark bird, dark bird.

Six feet one and a box of steel, in a pretty coat of black,
Well I watched the world, watch themselves, watch your final act.
And I couldn't help but notice, when they laid you in the earth,
A train went by, headed north, for whatever it is worth.
Your voice echoes in the wind, it rumbles through the trees,
But after you've been everywhere, I guess it's time to leave.


Dark bird, watch you fly,
Dark bird, to another sky.
And I'll bet you were a sight, when you hit that cloud of love,
And flew out the other side, in the form of a dove.
Dark bird, dark bird.
  G   A
Dark bird.
