[Verse 1]
C                       Am 
Birch tree lost its branch 
one day in violent winter
C I said it was grieving,
Am C
you said it don't feel nothing
F G C Am I bet you think everything's in its rightful place C G C That sentiment is man's disgrace
[Verse 2] C Am Well the rooks in the trees,
they don't half bother me
F G C Clawing at my mind with every given opportunity F G C Am It's spring outside, a perilous sky
C G Am
and that terrible clattering sound
C G Am "Go ahead, you should go shoot them down" Am G F That's what you said, "you should go shoot them down"
[Verse 3] G Am So hey, that's me C G Shooting at a hundred-year-old rookery G Am Oh, look at me F G F The definition of futility F That's what they'll say anyway F Won't they, babe?
[Verse 4] C Am So I'll go back to working
through the gentle hours of the evening
C F Am Where the weather and the wine
and the company treat me easily
F G C Am Unknowing am I of the wind that took my eye F G C Unknowing am I of the wind
[Outro] F G C Am Unknowing am I of the wind that took my eye C G C Unknowing am I of the wind
