This is all very simple. The whole song follows this same pattern: Am, C, F, G. It's 
on the 3rd fret, and these chords are relative to the capo.

It's 3/4 timing, like a waltz, so strum appropriately. Each chord gets exactly 4 
and this does not change.

Flightless Bird, American Mouth
by Iron & Wine

Verse 1:

         C
I was a quick wet boy

            Am
Diving too deep for coins

            F
All of your straight blind eyes

          G
Wide on my plastic toys

             C
And when the cops closed the fair

          Am
I cut my long baby hair

           F
Stole me a dog-eared map

                  G
And called for you everywhere


Chorus:

        C
Have I found you?

           Am     F        G
Flightless bird, jealous, weeping


C
Or lost you?

Am
American mouth

F         G
Big bill looming


Verse 2:

           C
Now I’m a fat house cat

            Am
Cursing my sore blunt tongue

             F
Watching the warm poison rats

                  G
Curl through the wide/white fence cracks

           C
Kissing on magazine photos

      Am                          F
Those fishing lures thrown in the cold and clean

               G
Blood of Christ mountain stream


Chorus:

C
Have I found you?

Am               F          G
Flightless bird, brown hair bleeding

C
Or lost you?

Am
American mouth

F         G
Big bill, still going down
