Key: Eb

Genre: General

Harp Type: Diatonic

Skill: Any

Flightless Bird, American Mouth

(“Your” in the 3rd line should be a D, but the harp doesn’t play that
low. I didn’t want to tab this song an octave higher.)

Verse:
1 -1 2 -2 -2 -2
I was a quick wet boy

-2 -2” 2 -1 2 2
Div-ing too deep for coins

-1 1 1 1 1 1
All of your street light eyes

1 -1 2 -1 -1 -1
Wide on my plas-tic toys

(repeat above to complete the verse)
And when the cops closed the fair
I cut my long baby hair
Stole me a dog-eared map
And called for you everywhere

Chorus:
-2 -2 -4 -4 5
Have I found you?

-4 5 -4 4
Flight-less bird

-3” (or 4) 4 -3 -3
Jea- lous, weep-ing

-4 4 4 -4 5
Have I lost you?

-4 -4 5 5 -4 4
A- me-ri-can mouth

4 4 -3
Big pill looming

Verse:
Now I’m a fat house cat
Nursing my sore blunt tongue
Watching the warm poison rats
Curl through the wide fence cracks
Pissing on magazine photos
Those fishing lures thrown in the cold and clean
Blood of Christ mountain stream

Chorus:
Have I found you?
Flightless bird, grounded bleeding
Or lost you?
American mouth
Big pill, stuck going down
