Bird On A Wire lyrics

 

Song information

Artist: Johnny Cash
Album: American Recordings

 

Lyrics

Like a bird on a wire like a drunk in a midnight choir I have tried in my way to be free like a fish on a hook like a knight from an old fashioned book I have saved all my ribbons with thee

And if I have been unkind I hope that you will just let it go by and if I have been untrue I hope you know it was never to you

Like a baby stillborn like a beast with his horn I have torn everyone who reached out for me

But I swear by this song by all I have done wrong I'll make it all up to you

I saw a beggar leaning on his wooden crutch he called out to me " don't ask for so much " and a young man leaning on his darkened door he cried out to me " hey, why not ask for more "

Like a bird on a wire like a drunk in a midnight choir I have tried in my way to be free
