"Killing Birds" by Chris Cornell
Chords by Joan's Genius 2012

This song is mostly in the key of Bb, with a few exceptions. 
For a simpler version, use the UG transpose function to go up 2 half steps (key of C).


Bb Dm Gm Dm
I learned long ago 'bout a better way of killing birds
Bb Dm Gm F
And what it means when they die in my hands
Bb Dm Gm Dm
Like a strangled heart, it never made much sense to me
Bb Dm Gm F
Why I'd need to know the best way to do that


Abm Eb Ebm Gb
But you have to love the murderer I've become
Bb Gm
As I'm standing here in front of you
Bb Gm
Standing right in front of you
Bb Gm
Standing here in front of you
G
Killing birds


Bb Dm Gm Dm
I've spent my youth breaking down the walls my father built
Bb Dm Gm F
Just like he did to his father before him
Bb Dm Gm Dm
But then I had no home, so I tried to make a better one
Bb Dm Gm F
It looked just like his, so I burned it down again


Abm Eb Ebm Gb
No there ain't a long parade of idiots
Bb Gm
As I'm standing here in front of you
Bb Gm
Standing right in front of you
Bb Gm
Standing here in front of you
Bb Gm
Killing birds


Abm Eb Ebm Gb
You don't have to love the murderer I've become


Bb Dm Gm Dm
If I could spin a web, I would sit and wait for you
Bb Dm Gm F
I wouldn't need a stone, I'd just poison you and tie you up
Bb Dm Gm Dm
And you would be a bird, a beautiful crested one
Bb Dm Gm F
And your eyes would beg, but I'm just doing my job


Bb Gm
Standing here in front of you
Bb Gm
Standing here in front of you
Bb Gm
Standing here in front of you
Bb Gm
Standing here in front of you
Bb Gm
Standing here in front of you
Bb Gm
Standing here in front of you
Bb Gm
Standing here in front of you
G
Killing birds
