Produced by Bob Johnston. Album Songs from a Room. Bird on the Wire Lyrics. Like a bird on the wire Like a drunk in a midnight choir I have tried in my way to be free Like a worm on a hook Like a knight from some old fashioned book I have saved all my ribbons for thee. If I, if I have been unkind I hope that you can just let it go by If I, if I have been untrue I hope you know it was never to you.

Album: Songs From A Room (1969). Cohen had a difficult time recording "Bird on the Wire," as the song never sounded "honest" enough to him. Depressed, Cohen finally gave up and went back to his hotel room. It wasn't until four days before the final scheduled recording session that he got what he was after. He asked everyone except for essential personnel, including producer Bob Johnson, to leave the studio. Bob Johnson produced the Cohen performance of "Bird on the Wire" that appeared on 1973's Songs from a Room and is the version most people know. Johnson was a highly respected producer whom Bob Dylan called "unreal. In addition to Cohen, Johnson produced such classic albums as Dylan's John Wesley Harding, Simon & Garfunkel's Bookends, and Johnny Cash's At Folsom Prison.
