Beautiful South - Blackbird on the Wire

Standard Tuning - Capo 3

Chords (capo as 0, actual chords in brackets)
Am  =x02210  (Cm)
Dm/A=x00231  (Fm/C)
G5  =3x0033  (Bb)
Em  =022000  (Gm)
B   =x24442  (D) 

intro: Am

Verse:

Am
Eyes to take you dancing,
Dm/A
Mouth to leave your wife,
G5                     Em
Legs to run away with, and you wonder why

Am                          Dm/A
Heart that makes you bypass every other girl
G5                                   Em
Smile that keeps you grinning at the madness of this world

Chorus:

             Am               Em
And like the blackbird on the wire
Am              Em
I will not take prey on you,
Em           Am
You wouldn't want me to
            B               Em
For I'm too soft for such a thing
             Am               Em
And like the blackbird on the wire
Am     Em
I just watch you by
Em          Am
The tears I knew I'd cry
       B              Em
Fall unnoticed down below.


(as verse)

And with a tongue built from quick silver
And a character of steel
They actually come and ask me how I feel

interlude: verse chords once then chorus chords once  

(as chorus)

And like the blackbird on the wire
I will not take prey on you,
You wouldn't want me to
For I'm too soft for such a thing
And like the blackbird on the wire
I just watch you by
The tears I knew I'd cry
Fall unnoticed down below,

Am
down below,
down below,
down below. 
(to Fade)

mostly good; I think that the 4th and 8th line of the chorus end in E major not E minor.

Looking back over this, I concur, is E major. E7 is pretty cool too. I reckon there's a few other E7's chucked in there as embellishments to some other Em's. Who Knew...
