A BROKEN WING    Martina McBride

B                      E
She loved him like he was the last man on earth
            F#                B
Gave him everything she ever had
B                           E
He'd break her spirit down then come a-loving up on her
         F#            B
Give a little Take it back
B                                E
She'd tell him about her dreams he'd just shoot them down
           F#               B
Lord, he loved to make her cry
B                           E
You're crazy for believing You'll ever leave the ground
            F#                B
Said only angels know how to fly.

G#m                     F#
And with a broken wing she still sings
E                        B
She keeps an eye on the sky
G#m                 E
With a broken wing she carries her dreams
          F#               B
Man, you ought to see her fly

B               E
Sunday morning she didn't go to church
            F#              B
He wonders why she didn't leave
B                           E
He went up to the bedroom found a note by the window
             F#                    B
with the curtains blowing in the breeze.
