The birds of St Marks – Jackson Browne (CD: Solo acoustic Vol. 1)

Capo I

Intro:
|C      |Am     |Fmaj7    |G     |
|C      |Am     |Fmaj7    |G     |

C
Oh how sad they sound the songs the queen must sing of dying
  Am        F                 Am/E       Dm        G
A prisoner upon her throne of melancholy sighing
             Dm             Em
If she could see her mirror now
             Dm                Em
She would be free of those who bow and
                              F
Scrape the ground beneath her feet

C                      
Silently she walks among her dying midnight roses
Am              F                Am/E         Dm        G
Watches as each moment goes that never really know us
          Dm                Em
And so it seems she doesn't care
           Dm               Em
If she has dreams of no one there
                          F
Within the shadows of her room

    C             Am       
But all my frozen words agree, and say it's time to
Em   Dm    Em  Dm  F  
Call back, all the birds i sent to
               G
Fly behind her castle walls, and I'm
C            F 
Weary of the nights I've seen
  G                C
Inside these empty halls

Interlude:
|C      |Am     |Fmaj7    |G     |
|C      |Am     |Fmaj7    |G     |

C
Wooden lady turn and turn among my weary secrets
    Am              F                    Am/E  Dm         G
And wave within the hours past and other empty pockets
            Dm                 Em
Maybe we've found what we have lost
             Dm            Em           
When we've unwound so many crossed entangling
        F
Misunderstandings; but


    C             Am       
But all my frozen words agree, and say it's time to
Em   Dm    Em  Dm  F  
Call back, all the birds I sent to
               G
Fly behind her castle walls, and I'm
C            F 
Weary of the nights i've seen
  G                C
Inside these empty halls


Coda:
|C      |Am     |Fmaj7    |G     |
|C      |Am     |Fmaj7    |G     |

Awesome tab to an awesome song. The only thing I think needs to be different is in the chorus where you have:

C Am
But all my frozen words agree, and say it's time to
Em F
Call back, all the birds i sent to

It should be this:

C Am
But all my frozen words agree, and say it's time to
Em Dm Em Dm F
Call back, all the birds i sent to
