The Prison
By Melissa Etheridge
From the Album "Skin"

Throughout this song,
you won't take your pinky off the third fret of  the high-E string.
The chord names I put above the tablature are the names of the chords
if the pinky was not on the third fret of the high E-string.

      Am              Am           Am            Am

      Fmaj7         Fmaj7          Fmaj7          Fmaj7
                                                      I was

     C              C              C              C
 high and dry           like a Kansas sky                 If I

   Am             Am           Am             Am
 ached for any more        I knew I'd surely die

  Fmaj7          Fmaj7          Fmaj7          Fjam7
 Night after night  trying to get out of my skin

     C                            Am
 Day  after    lone  ly        day,      you'd send me back


C                        Fmaj7
I have stood inside this prison

C                        Fmaj7
I have touched its stony walls

C                        Am
I know before you try to run

Am                   G
You gotta learn to crawl

C                         Fmaj7
I tried to leave it all behind me

C                                   Fmaj7
I drove all night, just to drive all day

C                                      Am
But the walls of this prison still surround me

  Fmaj7 G              Am
And I     can't break away
