Bird on the wire

Bird on the wire és un tema compost per Leonard Cohen el 1968 i que ha fet molta fortuna pel gran nombre de versions que ha tengut. Fins i tot el cantant i actor americà inscrigué els versets inicials d’aquesta cançó al seu epitafi:

Like a bird on the wire
Like a drunk in a midnight choir
I have tried in my way to be free

La versió original:

Una versió de Rosemary Standley

A E A D
Like a bird on the wire, like a drunk in a midnight choir
A E Asus4 A
I have tried in my way to be free
A E A D
Like a worm on a hook, like a knight from some old-fashioned book
A E 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
I hope you know it was never to you.
Like a baby stillborn, like a beast with his horn
I have torn everyone who reached out for me.
But I swear by this song and by all that I have done wrong
I will make it all up to thee.
I saw a beggar leaning on his wooden crutch
He said to me, “You must not ask for so much.”
And a pretty woman leaning in her darkened door,
She cried to me, “Hey, why not ask for more?”

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