Rusty Cage

Johnny Cash

 C
 you wired me awake and hit me with a hand of broken nails
 C
 you tied my lead and pulled my chain and watched my blood begin to boil
 CAm
 but i'm gonna break 
 CAm
 i'm gonna break my 
 CAm
 gonna break my rusty cage and run 
 CAm
 but i'm gonna break 
 CAm
 i'm gonna break my 
 CAmC
 gonna break my rusty cage and run

(another guitar plays Am through this part, listen for it in the recording)
 C
 too cold to start a fire i'm burning diesel burning dinosaur bones
 C
 i'll take the river down to stillwater and ride a pack of dogs
 CAm
 but i'm gonna break 
 CAm
 i'm gonna break my 
 CAm
 gonna break my rusty cage and run 
 CAm
 but i'm gonna break 
 CAm
 i'm gonna break my 
C Am (N.C.)
gonna break my rusty cage and run

G5 (until the end)
when the forest burns along the road
like god's eyes in my headlights
when the dogs are looking for thier bones
and it's raining icepicks on your steel shores
but i'm gonna break
i'm gonna break my
gonna break my rusty cage and run
but i'm gonna break
i'm gonna break my
gonna break my rusty cage and run
