[Verse 1]
Em         Em/B         Em       Em/B
     Edna Million in a drop-dead suit,
Em         Em/B        B7/F#    B7
     Dutch pink on a downtown train,
B7/F#               B7            B7/F#       B7
       Two dollar pistol, but the gun won't shoot,
B7/F#               B7            Em    Em/B
       I'm in the corner in the pouring rain!


[Verse 2]
  Em    Em/B        Em     Em/B
Sixteen men on a deadman's chest,
Em                  Em/B          B7/F#   B7
    And I've been drinking from a broken cup,
B7/F#               B7          B7/F#   B7
       Two pair of pants, and a mohair vest,
B7/F#               B7         Em        Em/B
       I'm full of Bourbon, I can't stand up! 


[Chorus]
Am          Am/E  Am   Em       Em/B
Hey, little bird,      fly away home,
Em     B7        B7/F# B7         Em             Em/B  Em
Your house is on fire,     your children are a - lone,
Am              Am/E   Am  Em       Em/B
    Hey, little bird,      fly away home,
Em    B7        B7/F#  B7          Em            Em/B  Em/G
Your house is on fire,     your children are a - lone!


[Verse 3]
   Em             Em/B       Em    Em/B
Schiffer broke a bottle on Morgans head,
Em                Em/B           B7/F#   B7
   And I've been stepping on the devils tail,
B7/F#               B7         B7/F#        B7
       Across the stripes of a full moon's head,
B7/F#               B7        Em   Em/B
       Through the bars of a Cuban jail!


[Verse 4]
Em          Em/B         Em          Em/B
    Bloody fingers on a purple knife,
Em              Em/B            B7/F#    B7
    A flamingo drinking from a cocktail glass,
B7/F#              B7               B7/F#   B7
       I'm on the lawn with someone else's wife,
B7/F#              B7             Em         Em/B
       Admire the view from up on top of the mast!


[Chorus]
Am          Am/E  Am   Em       Em/B
Hey, little bird,      fly away home,
Em     B7        B7/F#  B7         Em            Em/B  Em
Your house is on fire,     your children are a - lone,
Am              Am/E    Am   Em       Em/B
    Hey, little bird,       fly away home,
Em    B7        B7/F#   B7         Em            Em/B  Em
Your house is on fire,     your children are a - lone!

[Verse 5]
Em           Em/B        Em       Em/B
     Yellow sheets on a Hong Kong bed,
Em           Em/B           B7/F#     B7
     Stazybo horn, and a Slingerland ride,
B7/F#            B7          B7/F#     B7
      'To the carnival!', is what she said,
B7/F#              B7             Em  Em/F# Em/G  Em/B
       A hundred dollars makes it dark in - side!

B7/F#               B7          Em   Em/F#  Em/G  Em/B
       I'm in the corner in the pour - ing  rain!
