 C#mAE
 Driving home she grabs something to eat 
 F#mAC#m
Turns a corner and drives down her street 
 F#mE
Into a row of houses she just melts away 
 F#mA
Like a scenery in another man's play
 B
Into a house where the blinds are closed
 C#mA
To keep from seeing things she don't wanna know
 B
She pulls the blinds and looks out on the street
 AB
Where the cool of the night takes the edge off the street
 EC#m
In the Jackson Cage 
 G#mA
Down in the Jackson Cage 
 EBA
You can try with all your might
 EBA
But you're reminded every night
 C#mA
That you've been judged and handed life
B E | B | C#m
Down in the Jackson Cage

 AE
Every day ends in wasted motion 
 F#mAC#m
Just crossed swords on the killing floor  
 F#mE
To settle back is to settle without knowing 
 F#mA
The hard edge that you're settling for
 B
Because there's always just one more day
 C#mA
 And it's always gonna be that way
 B
Little girl you've been down here so long
 AB
I can tell by the way that you move you belong to

 EC#m
The Jackson Cage
 G#mA
Down in Jackson Cage 
 EB
And it don't matter just what you say
 AEB
Are you tough enough to play the game they play
 AC#mA
Or will you just do your time and fade away
 BE
Down into the Jackson Cage

(Harp solo) | C#m | C#m | E | E | C#m | C#m | E B | A | A | C#m

 AE
Baby there's nights when I dream of a better world
 F#mAC#m
But I wake so downhearted girl  
 F#m
I see you feeling so tired and confused
 EF#mA
 I wonder what it's worth to me or you
 B
Just waiting to see some sun
 C#mA
 Never knowing if that day will ever come
 B
Left alone standing out on the street
 AB
Till you become the hand that turns the key down in

 EC#m
Jackson Cage 
 G#mA
Down in Jackson Cage
 EB
Well darling can you understand
 AEB
The way that they will turn a man
 AC#mA
Into a stranger to waste away
 BAE
Down in the Jackson Cage
