Bird on a Wire

        D 	            A
Like a bird on a wire,
 	 D                   G 	 
Like a drunk in a midnight choir,
          D        A           D
I have tried in my way to be free,

 	 D 	  A
Like a worm on a hook,
 	 D 	  	            G  	 
Like a knight from an old fashioned book,
 	 D 	      A      	   D 	 
I have saved all my ribbons for thee,

       G 	  	  D 	 
And if I, if I've been unkind,
  E                            A
I hope that you will let it go by,
       G 	          D
And if I, if I've been untrue,
  E 	  	     	         A
I hope you know it was never to you,

       D           A
Like a baby, still born,
       D7             G
Like a beast with his horn,
       D          A 	        	  	  D       D7
I have torn every one who reached out to me,

 	 G 	  	       D
I saw a beggar leaning on his crutch,
 	    E                    A
He said to me "Don't ask for so much",
      G 	  	                 D
And a woman leaning in her dark door,
      E                          A
She cried to me "Why not ask for more",

     D             A
So I swear by this song,
  D7                     G
I swear by all I've done wrong,
       D 	        A 	           G      D
I will make it, I will make it, all up to you.

I pinched the Words from Dave83. I think these are the right chords but I haven't
heard the song for a little while.
