This Bird Has Flown - The Wooden Sky


*Capo 2nd and 4th fret
He plays it wit a capo on 2nd fret and a capo covering the high five strings to get the low F# note 
in the bass on the «Dm» chord (relative to capo 4th fret). just remember to fret the low E string 
on the E chord!
Also remember the high E string is tuned down to D, which makes the cool sound on the Am and F chords. 
But on the Dm, you will have to fret the 1st string on 3rd fret, not the 1st. also it sounds 
better to me fretting the 2nd fret, 1st string on the E chord. 


   Am      F      Dm     E
d |-0-|  |-0-|  |-3-|  |-0--|
B |-1-|  |-1-|  |-3-|  |-0--|
G |-2-|  |-2-|  |-2-|  |-1--|
D |-2-|  |-3-|  |---|  |-2--|
A |-0-|  |---|  |---|  |-2--|
E*|---|  |-1-|  |-0-|  |-0*-|

*  The capo on 4th fret does not cover this string. the "0" means the string is open, only pushed down by the 
   capo on 2nd fret. 
*  "0*" means what would be 0 from the capo on your 4th fret, which means you will have to 
   fret it with  
*  "1" is fretting what would normally be your 1st fret from the capo on 4th fret, which is the 5th fret 
   on the guitar, if you had no capo. 





[Intro]
Am

[Verse 1]
Am
I want to cut off all my hair
F
And go out walkin' in the cold
Dm
Carve myself a new hole
E
And talk just like before
Am
I want to starve myself of blankets
F
And sleep here on the floor
Dm                                      Am
Oh god don't let this be love

[Verse 2]
Am
Stop calling me your lover
F
We'll stop talking on the phone
Dm
'Cause such a pretty voice
E
Just makes me miss the dial tone
Am
So I'm gonna rip out my own heart
F
Who so clearly has betrayed
Dm
My quest for being lonely and my
E                                Am
Promise of the same

[Verse 3]
Am
Well if I had a choice
F
And I'm only partly sure I do
Dm
I'd gather all my things and I'd
E
Leave town and I'd leave you
Am
Take up a residence just off the coast and
F
Drown a year or two
Dm                                   Am
Oh god don't let this be love

[Verse 4]
Am
And if winter fell upon you
F
Well I'd be outside in the snow
Dm
Not thinkin' about your red hat
E
No not missin' you at all
Am
I'd light up a new bad habit
F
Start talking in the night
Dm
If I ever thought of you I'd say
E                                      Am
Well I still think I was right

[Verse 5]
Am
Well the bird at my new window
F
Soon be outside my new door
Dm
Askin' me for flowers
E
And of what had come before
Am
And I'd do my best to tell her
F
I ain't never been in love
Dm                             Am
But god I ain't so sure

[Verse 6]
Am
So I took to writing postcards
F
Send greetings from the coast
Dm
It's a shame I lost your address
E
'Cause I'm sure by now you've moved
Am
So I'll never get the chance to see
F
Your new home up in flames
Dm
Well if I had a match then you'd be
E                                 Am
Certain that would change
