[C#m]Driving home she grabs s[A]omething to eat[E]
Turns a corner and d[F#m]rives down h[A]er street[C#m]
Into a row of houses sh[F#m]e just melts away[E]
Like a scenery in anot[F#m]her m[A]an's play
Into a house where the [B]blinds are closed
To k[C#m]eep from seeing things she don't w[A]anna know
She pulls the blinds and looks o[B]ut on the street
Where the c[A]ool of the night takes the e[B]dge off the street
In the J[E]ackson Cage[C#m]
Down in the [G#m]Jackson Cage[A]
You can try w[E]ith all yo[B]ur migh[A]t
But you're remin[E]ded ev[B]ery nig[A]ht
That you've been judged [C#m]and hande[A]d life
B E | B | C#m
Down in the Jackson Cage

Every day ends in w[A]asted motion[E]
Just crossed swords on the [F#m]killing fl[A]oor [C#m]
To settle back is to [F#m]settle without knowing[E]
The hard edge that you're [F#m]settling f[A]or
Because there's always just o[B]ne more day
[C#m]And it's always gonna b[A]e that way
Little girl you've been d[B]own here so long
I can t[A]ell by the way that you m[B]ove you belong to


The J[E]ackson Cag[C#m]e
Down in J[G#m]ackson Cage[A]
And it don't matter j[E]ust what y[B]ou say
Are y[A]ou tough enough to play t[E]he game th[B]ey play
Or will you[A] just do your time [C#m]and fade a[A]way
D[B]own into the Jackson C[E]age

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

Baby there's nights when I [A]dream of a better worl[E]d
But I wake so d[F#m]ownhearted gi[A]rl [C#m]
I see you feeling so t[F#m]ired and confused
[E]I wonder what it's worth to [F#m]me or y[A]ou
Just waiting to s[B]ee some sun
[C#m]Never knowing if that d[A]ay will ever come
Left alone standing o[B]ut on the street
Till you bec[A]ome the hand that t[B]urns the key down in

J[E]ackson Cage[C#m]
Down in J[G#m]ackson Cag[A]e
Well darling can y[E]ou unde[B]rstand
T[A]he way that they w[E]ill turn [B]a man
Int[A]o a stranger t[C#m]o waste [A]away
D[B]own in the Jackson C[A]age[E]
