                                "Caged Bird"
          (from Songs in A Minor)
                 Alicia Keys

General Tab Structure:
(I play it with the Hendrix type chord with my thumb on the low E string):


Ab           F#        F
Right now I feel like a bird
Ab       F#      F
Caged without a key
Ab         F#     F
Everyones comes stearing me
Ab            F#      F
With so much joy and revelry

                Bbm   Ab    Eb*

Bbm        Ab       Eb
They don't know how I feel inside
Bbm        Ab      Eb
Through my smile I cry
Bbm        Ab      Eb
They don't know what they do to me
Bbm     Ab      Eb
Keeping me from flyin'

(Thats why I say that)

Ab       F#      F
I know why the caged bird sings
Bbm    Ab      Eb
Only joy comes from song
Ab       F#        F
She's so rare and beautiful to others
Bbm      Ab      Eb
Why not just set her free
Ab       F#        F
So she can fly, fly, fly
Ab             F#         F
Spreadin' her wings and her song
Ab       F#        F
Let her fly, fly, fly
Bbm      Ab      Eb
For the whole world to see

Ab F# F
Ab F# F

Ab       F#        F
She's like a caged bird
Ab       F#        F
Fly fly
    Ab                       F#                 F
Oh, she's a little fly, She's a little fly, She's a little fly
Ab         F#       Fmaj7**
Spread wings, Spread beauty

* you may want to try varying the Eb by using x6888x, x6534x, or 3x134x
** you may want to finger the Fmaj7 with 1x221x, x 8 10 9 10 x, or x8755x

Tips: Watch the third verse, since it alternates between the two chord progressions, you 
want to use the two lead-ins alternatively during that verse.
