From: U270009@UNIVSCVM.CSD.SCAROLINA.EDU ( Chords For 'Bird Song' by The Grateful Dead Intro/Riff: D7--C-D7--C-D7 D7 Riff All I heard was something like a bird within her sing, D7 Riff All I know she sang a little while and then flew on, Bb F C G D7 Riff Tell me all that you know and I'll show you snow and rain. If you hear that same sweet song again will you know why? Anyone who sings a tune so sweet is passing by. Laugh in the sunshine, sing, cry in the dark, fly through the night. Bm A G D A G D A G D Don't cry now, don't you cry, don't you cry anymore, la da da da. Bm A G D A G D A G D D7 Sleep in the stars, don't you cry, dry your eyes on the wind, la da da da, da. Just a note, I believe this is the version on "Garcia," in D, early live versions were also in D but switched to E...
