Bird On A Wire
Recorded by Johnny Cash
Written by Leonard Cohen

C G7 C F
Like a bird on a wire like a drunk in a midnight choir
C G7 C
I have tried in my ways to be free
G7 C F
Like a fish on a hook like a knight in some old fashioned book
C G7 C
I have saved all my ribbons for thee

F C
And if I if I have been unkind
Dm G7
I just hope you will let it go by
F C
And if I if I have been untrue
Dm G7
I hope you know it was never to you

C G7 C F
Like a baby stillborn like a beast with his horn
C G7 C
I have torn everyone who reached out to me
G7 C F
But I swear by this song and by all that I have done wrong
C G7 C
I'll make it all up to thee

F C
I saw a young man leaning on his wooden crutch
Dm G7
He called out to me don't ask for so much
F C
And a young woman leaning in her darkened door
Dm G7
She cried out to me why not ask for more

C G7 C F
Like a bird on a wire like a drunk in a midnight choir
C G7 F C
I have tried in my ways to be free
