"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 Gb F

Right now I feel like a bird

Ab Gb F

Caged without a key

Ab Gb F

Everyones comes stearing me

Ab Gb 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 Gb F

I know why the caged bird sings

Bbm Ab Eb

Only joy comes from song

Ab Gb F

She's so rare and beautiful to others

Bbm Ab Eb

Why not just set her free

Ab Gb F

So she can fly, fly, fly

Ab Gb F

Spreadin' her wings and her song

Ab Gb F

Let her fly, fly, fly

Bbm Ab Eb

For the whole world to see



Ab Gb F

Ab Gb F


Ab Gb F

She's like a caged bird

Ab Gb F

Fly fly

Ab Gb F

Oh, she's a little fly, She's a little fly, She's a little fly

Ab Gb 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.
