BIRD ON THE WIRE           LEONARD COHEN

        A           E
Like a bird on the wire
         A                   D
Like a drunk in a midnight choir
         A          E          A   Asus4   A
I have tried in my 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    Asus4   A
I have saved all my ribbons for thee


D                       A
If I, if I have been unkind
   Bm                               A
I hope that you can just let it go by
D                        A
If I, if I have been untrue
   Bm                         E     Esus4   E
I hope you know it was never to you


        A          E
Like a baby, stillborn
        A              D
Like a beast with his horn
        A        E                        A   Asus4   A
I have torn everyone who reached out for me


        A            E
But I swear by this song
       A                      D
And by all that I have done wrong
   A           E           A   Asus4   A
I will make it all up to thee


D                                      A
I saw a beggar leaning on his wooden crutch
    Bm                                A
He said to me, "You must not ask for so much."
D                                           A
And a pretty woman leaning in her darkened door
      Bm                            E      Esus4   E
She cried to me, "Hey, why not ask for more?"


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