INTRO:
G               Am7             Bm              C       (x2)

G         Am7                      Bm
I know why the caged bird sings
                C                 G
It's for me, it's for me
G         Am7                      Bm           C       G-G-G9-Em
I know why the caged bird sings
Em               Am7         Bm                 C       G-G-G9-Em
Today I am helpless and time stands still
Em                              Am7          Bm                 C
G-G-G9-Em
And the world goes on racing as the world always will
Em               Am7         Bm                 C
Days turn to weeks and weeks into months
C                               G-G-G9-Em
Leaving no answers and treasures lost
Em                      Am7                        Bm
Now all that I have is all that I am
Bm          C           G-G-G9-Em
Not much more than a shell of a man
Em                      Am7                              Bm
There's no revelations no wisdom no rhymes
Bm                      C               G-G-G9-Em
No freedom no pleasure no songs that are mine
Em                          Am7                     Bm
I'm a ship lost at sea in the waves and disease
Bm                C      G-G-G9-Em
Chaos above me and Neptune beneath
Em                       Am7                          Bm
I can't see the stars that guide the way
Bm                         C         G-G-G9-Em
This night's just begun and dawn's so far away
Em              Am7             Bm
What will happen?
Bm              C         G-G-G9-Em
What will happen?
Em              Am7             Bm
What will happen?
Bm              C         G-G-G9-Em
What will happen?
Em        Am7           Bm
Chaos above me
Bm                C      G-G-G9-Em
And Neptune beneath
Em        Am7           Bm
Chaos above me
Bm                C      G-G-G9-Em
And Neptune beneath

INTERLUDE (quietly, slowly, and understated):
G               Am7             Bm              C       (x2)

G                          Am7               Bm         C
No, life is never fair.  It owes me nothing
G                          Am7               Bm         C
Just when I had it all I lost everything
G                          Am7               Bm         C
But somehow God is good and God is loving
G                          Am7              *Bm         C
Just when I lost it all I gained everything
G         Am7                      Bm
I know why the caged bird sings.
                C                 G
It's for me, it's for me
G         Am7                      Bm
I know why the caged bird sings
                C                 G
It's for me, it's for me.
G         Am7                      Bm
I know why the caged bird sings
