Previous versions of this song posted around here incorrectly assumed that
there is the same chord sequence through the song. In fact, a second,
different one kicks in at "Oh Black Bird...". The key here is the same as
CD version: Eb, while some live versions are in F (or tuned down G), so
transpose your chords accordingly. I play it on uke and piano and just use Eb
without any changes to the tuning. Use Ab/Bb if Fm7/Bb feels inconvenient, or
even Bb7sus4, but the first two will have a fuller sound. Also, you may want to
add 7ths to the minors in the second part. :)

Cheers!

Too Many Birds - Bill Callahan


First part: Eb    Fm7    Fm7/Bb    Bb7    (repeats)

Too many birds in one tree
Too many birds in one tree
And the sky is full of black and screaming leaves
The sky is full of black and screaming

And one more bird
Then one more bird
And one last bird
And another

One last black bird without a place to land
One last black bird without a place to be
Turns around in hopes to find the place it last knew rest


Second part: Eb    Cm    Fm    Bb7    (repeats)

Oh black bird, over black rain burn
This is not where you last knew rest
You fly all night to sleep on stone
The heartless rest that in the morn, we'll be gone
You fly all night to sleep on stone, to return to the tree with too many birds
Too many birds
Too many birds

If
If you
If you could
If you could only
If you could only stop
If you could only stop your
If you could only stop your heart
If you could only stop your heart beat
If you could only stop your heart beat for
If you could only stop your heart beat for one heart
If you could only stop your heart beat for one heart beat.
