Capo 5th Fret

G D G CLike a bird on a wire, like a drunk in a midnight choir
G D GI have tried in my way to be free
G D G CLike a fish on a hook, like a knight from some old-fashioned book
G D GI have saved all my ribbons for thee
C GIf I, if I have been unkind
Am DI hope that you can let it go by
C GIf I, if I have been untrue,
Am DI hope you know it was never to you.
G D G CLike a baby stillborn, like a beast with his horn
G D GI have torn everyone who reached out for me.
G D G CBut I swear by this song and by all that I have done wrong
G D GI will make it all up to thee.
C G I saw a young man leaning on his wooden crutch
Am DHe called out to me, "Don’t ask for so much."
C G And a young woman leaning in her darkened door,
Am DShe cried out to me, "Why not ask for more?"
G D G CLike a bird on a wire, like a drunk in a midnight choir
G D C GI have tried in my way to be free
