INTRO:
  Am    Am7   
  F     Fadd9

VERSE 1:
         Am                     Am7
  In the ironbound section near Avenue L
            F                        Fadd9
  Where the Portuguese women come to see what you sell
       Am               Am7
  The clouds so low the morning so slow
         F                     Fadd9 
  As the wires cut through the sky

VERSE 2:
      Am                        Am7
  The beams and bridges cut the light on the ground
       F                        Fadd9
  Into little triangles and the rails run round
              Am                    Am7
  Through the rust and the heat the light and sweet
          F              Fadd9
  Coffee    color of her skin

CHORUS 1:
  Em              F        Em
      Bound up in wire and fate
               F                  Em
  Watching her walk him up to the gate
                  F
  In front of the ironbound school yard

VERSE 3:
  Am                  Am7
  Kids will grow like weeds on a fence
                F                       Fadd9
  She says they look for the light they try to make sense
       Am                               Am7
  They come up through the cracks, like grass on the tracks
  F                     Fadd9
    She touches him goodbye

CHORUS 2:
  Em               F                 Em
     Steps off the curb and into the street
                F                 Em
  The blood and feathers near her feet
           F
  Into the ironbound market

INTERLUDE:
  Am C G C

VERSE 4:
         Am                     Am7
  In the ironbound section near Avenue L
            F                        Fadd9
  Where the Portuguese women come to see what you sell
       Am               Am7
  The clouds so low the morning so slow
         F                     Fadd9 
  As the wires cut through the sky

CHORUS 3:
  Em                  F                  Em
     She stops at the stall, fingers the ring
            F              Em
  Opens her purse, feels a longing
                F
  Away from the ironbound border

INTERLUDE:
  Am C G C (play 4x)

FINALE (play 2x):
  A     A7sus2  A          A7sus2  
  Fancy poulty  parts sold here
  F             G9         F        G9
  Breasts and   thighs and hearts
  Cm7                 F         F6
  Backs are cheap and wings are nearly

AND CONTINUE (play 4x):
  A      A7sus2  A      A7sus2
  free,                        nearly
  F      G9      F      G9
  free,                        nearly

REPEAT AND FADE TO END:
  A      A7sus2  A      A7sus2
  F      G9      F      G9

About the artist behind Ironboundfancy Poultry:

Suzanne Nadine Vega, born 11 July 1959 in Santa Monica, California) is an American songwriter and singer known for her highly literate lyrics and eclectic folk-inspired music. Record companies saw little prospect of commercial success in the beginning; Vega's demo tape was rejected by every major record company—twice by A&M. In 1984 she was finally signed by A&M, and she is now a Grammy nominated artist. Two songs of Vega's (from her second album – Solitude Standing 1987) that were very popular are Luka and Tom's Diner, which has been interpolated into many recordings by various artists.
