Am

 Am                       Em
Through the charred black winter trees
   Dm              Am
I hear their voices sing to me.
 Am                  Em
Fearsome black birds crying high,
   Dm                     Am
But there'll be no warning when I die.
 Am                  Em
Some lonesome sparrow saying don't you know
  Dm                     Am
that you're gone forever when you go

 G                  Am
Oh, and i hear them calling
           G            Am
Through my window every morning
     G                   Am
Your life dear boy means nothing
  Em          E
Say the birds, The birds, the birds


Am

 Am               Em
Then by the willow I did see
  Dm              Am
A swarm of buzzing honey bees
 Am                Em
"Good morning honey bees" I cried
   Dm                 Am
But to me they offered no reply
 Am                         Em
And that fearsome black bird answered instead
     Dm                     Am
"Boy there's now a price put on your head"

  G                     Am
Oh, and I hear 'em them calling
        G            Am
From my window every morning
       G                    Am
"Your life, dear boy, means nothing"
   Em         E
Say the birds, the birds, the birds.


Am

Em        G          Am
No use hiding in the water.
Em        G          Am
No use hiding in the square.
Em                  G             Am     Em
Know those eyes are looking for you everywhere.

 Am                   Em
Well you'll be glad my love to hear,
 Dm                    Am
One morning they did all disappear.
   Am           Em
Tired of all the summer rain,
  Dm                   Am
they made their nest inside my brain.
  Am                     Em
But don't worry darling, pay it no mind
  Dm                       Am
true friends like these are hard to find.

  G                      Am
Now I no longer hear 'em calling
           G         Am
From my window every morning
          G                Am
And my life, at last means something
 Em           E
Say the birds, the birds, the birds.
