"Bird of Sorrow"
by Glen Hansard
from his album Rhythm & Repose


CAPO 4TH

Not sure if this is the exact way Mr. Hansard plays it (though I've seen him do it live
and he does capo it on the 4th fret and there are definitely some variations of all the
chords used here) but it's pretty darn close.
Sorry the spacing of the chords to match where they fall with the lyrics isn't accurate,
you'll have to listen along with the song to figure that out (if you don't already know
it well enough to just do it).  The way the tab editor is makes it all weird when you 
space stuff out.

(Intro)
C  G  C
C  G  C

(Verse 1)
C  G  C
Even if a day feels too long
C  G  C
You feel like you can't wait another one
C  G  F
And you're slowly giving up on everything
G  Am
Love is gonna find you again
G  Am
Love is gonna find you, you better be ready then

C  G  C
C  G  C

C  G  C
Well you been kneeling in the dark for far too long
C  G  C
You've been waiting for that spark but it hasn't come
C  G  F
I'm calling to you please get off the floor
G  Am
A good heart will find you again
G  Am
A good heart will find you, just be ready then

(Chorus)
F
    Tethered to a bird of sorrow
F
    A voice that's buried in the hollow
C
    You've given over to self-deceiving
G
    You're prostrate bound but not believing
Am
    You've squandered more than you could borrow
F  G
    You bet your joys on all tomorrow
C
    And for the hope of some returning
G  Am
    While everything around you is burning

(Verse 2)
C  G  C
Come on we gotta get out, get out of this mess we've made
C  G  C
And still for all our talk we're both so afraid
C  G  F
But will we leave this up to chance like we do everything
G  Am
Love is gonna find us again
G  Am
Love is gonna find us, you gotta be ready then

(Chorus)
F
    Tethered to a bird of sorrow
F
    A voice that's buried in the hollow
C
    You've given over to self-deceiving
G
    You're prostrate bound but not believing
Am
    You've squandered more than you could borrow
F  G
    You bet your joys on all tomorrow
C
    And for the hope of some returning
G  Am  F
    While everything around you is burni...........ing

C
But I'm not leaving yet
G
I'm not leaving yet
Am  F
I'm not leaving yet
C  G
I'm not leaving yet
Am  F
Yeah I'm not leaving
C  G
I'm not leaving yet
Am  F
Yeah I'm hanging on
C
I'm hanging on
G
Oh

What's gonna come

Oh I'm hangin on

Hangin on
Am
Hangin on

Oh, what's gonna come
C  G  Am  F
Hanging on hanging on with the faithful the faithful
