Flightless Bird, American Mouth
by Iron & Wine

Verse 1:

         G
I was a quick wet boy

            Em
Diving too deep for coins

            C
All of your straight blind eyes

          D
Wide on my plastic toys

             G
And when the cops closed the fair

          Em
I cut my long baby hair

           C
Stole me a dog-eared map

                  D
And called for you everywhere


Chorus:

        G
Have I found you?

           Em     C        D
Flightless bird, jealous, weeping


G
Or lost you?

Em
American mouth

C         D
Big bill looming


Verse 2:

           G
Now I’m a fat house cat

            Em
Cursing my sore blunt tongue

             C
Watching the warm poison rats

                  D
Curl through the wide fence cracks

           G
Pissing on magazine photos

      Em                          C
Those fishing lures thrown in the cold and clean

               D
Blood of Christ mountain stream


Chorus:

G
Have I found you?

Em               C          D
Flightless bird, brown hair bleeding

G
Or lost you?

Em
American mouth

C         D
Big bill, still going down...
