Soul Asylum, Bird On A Wire  (written by Leonard Cohen)
----------------
(Intro) A	    A	A	A 
 
           A  	             E		   A	             D 
Like a bird on the wire, like a drunk in a midnight choir 
	 A	       E	         A  (p/o D) 
I have tried in my own way to be free 
 
              A	 E 
Like a worm on a hook 
	A			D 
like a knight from some old fashioned book 
            A		 E	   A (p/o D) 
I have saved all my ribbons for thee 
 
        D		A 
and if I have been unkind 
    B 		     A  
I hope you will let it slip by 
       D		 A	 
and if I have been untrue 
     B			E 
I hope you know it was not to you 
 
          A	         E 
like a baby still born 
           A		  D	 
like a beast with his horn 
	A	    E		   A (p/o D) 
I have turned from all those who turned to me 
 
            A		 E 
But I swear by this song 
            A			D 
and by all that I have done wrong 
	A	       E                 A	(p/o D) 
I have saved all these moments for thee 
 
    D			 A 
I saw a beggar on his broken crutch 
    B 			               A 
he said to me, you shouldn’t ask for so much 
    D			           A 
I saw a pretty lady in her darkened door 
        B			     E 
she said to me, why not ask for more? 
 

           A	             E 
Like a bird on the wire 
            A		           D		 
like a drunk in a midnight choir  
            A		    E	     A 
I have tried in my own way to be free.
