Bird On A Wire

Bird on a Wire - Soul Asylum (Dave and Dan 1991 recording)


Intro
A       Asus4  A       Asus4  A

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

Chorus
    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  Esus4  E
  I hope you know it was not to you

Verse
       A          E
Like a baby still born
       A              D
Like a beast with his horn
        A               E                  A  Asus4  A
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  Asus4  A
I have saved all these moments for thee

Chorus
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  Esus4  E
  She said to me, why not ask for more?

Verse
       A         E
Like a bird on a wire
       A                   D
like a drunk in a midnight choir
       A            E         Asus4  A
I have tried in my way to be free
