Birds Fly Away


Transposer


             These are the chords according to the album version. On YouTube I've seen her playing Cm / Dm.. as well, for that select "+1" in the transposing tool below, and for a slightly easier version select "-2" to play Am / Bm... (capo in the 2nd fret to play along the original).


[Chords]
Amaj7/G# = 4 0 2 2 2 x
A7/G =     3 0 2 2 2 x

Play both with an index finger barre on the 2nd fret and then ring finger on fret 4 for the G# and middle finger on fret 3 for the G on the 6th string.


[Intro]
N.C.
(Humming)


[Verse 1]
Bm    C#m            Bm
 I'm sitting on my stoop
                 C#m                        Bm
Just thinking about the friends I used to know
             C#m
Summers we spent outside
                       Bm
Slapping time on our thighs
                E
Smiling at the boys walk by


[Pre-Chorus 1]
             A
But then a breeze begins to blow
        Amaj7/G#              A  A7/G
And I know it's time to go inside
      Bm
But wait


[Chorus]
        C#m
Birds fly away
Bm           C#m
 They seek shelter
Bm          C#m
 Trees stand strong
Bm           E
 They don't falter


[Interlude]
Bm C#m  x4


[Verse 2]
Bm    C#m                Bm
 I'm walking down the street
              C#m                         Bm
The people I pass, we nod our heads and go
             C#m
Shuffle our feet away
                 Bm
Never more than hello
             E
One more we let slip by


[Pre-Chorus 2]
             A
But like a photograph I took
        Amaj7/G#         A  A7/G
One of many in a book I lost
    Bm
To time


[Chorus 2]
       C#m
Don't fade away
Bm      C#m
 Turn 'round
Bm       C#m
 Stay for the day
Bm      E
 In my town


[Interlude]
Bm C#m
Bm     Bm
  Yeah!


[Chorus 3]
Bm       C#m
 Birds fly away
Bm           C#m
 They seek shelter
Bm       C#m
 Trees stand strong
Bm           E
 They don't falter
Bm       C#m
 Birds fly away
Bm           C#m
 They seek shelter
Bm       C#m
 Trees stand strong
Bm           E
 They don't falter
