Daniel Johnston - Like a Monkey in a Zoo
i'm having trouble finding the Daniel Johnston version for reference so im going 
by Kathy McCarty's cover, which i think is in the same key anyway but im not certain.

the main piano tune goes a bit like this (give it a swing):

     F       G         F
E  :-----3---2-0-2-3-|-----------------|
B  :-----------------|-------1---------|
G  :---0-------------|-----0---0-------|
D  :-------0-0-------|---2-------2---2-|
A  :-----------------|-3-----------3---|
E  :-3---------------|-----------------|

the tune's just in the top strings, you can improvise the other part.

                    F, G, F
I'm chained to the wall.
(F)                F, G, F
I have nothin' at all.
(F)     F                  G                  F
And my eyes look into the sunset thinkin' of better things to do,
(F)      F    G     F
Like a monkey in a zoo.

                 F, G, F
The days go so slow.
(F)               F, G, F
I don't have no friends.
(F)     F           G                      F
Except all these people who want me to do tricks for them,
(F)      F    G    F
Like a monkey in a zoo.

F, C7
                        F, C/E, Dm
And it could happen to you.
(Dm)            F
You could be in my place.
C7                         F, C/E, Dm
No it wasn't always like this,
(Dm)                G7
But I never saw it comin'.


          F, G, F
I'm so alone,
(F)             F,  G, F
But this is my home.
(F)      F         G                         F
And the bars that surround me keep me from knowin' any better,
(F)      F    G    F
Like a monkey in a zoo.

            F,    G, F
Throw me a peanut.
(F)             F,  G, F
Laugh and make jokes.
(F)       F             G               F
But I've had enough of peanuts and I'm ready to choke,
(F)      F    G    F
Like a monkey in a zoo.

F, C7

                       F, C/E, Dm
You come to look at me.
(Dm)          F
You seem so amused.
C7                       F, C/E, Dm
But things would look different
(Dm)           G7
If you were in my shoes.


                F,  G, F
I know its my fault,
(F)         F,  G, F
But I want out.
(F)         F       G               F
And when I cry out nobody seems to understand,
(F)      F    G    F
Like a monkey in a zoo.

             F,  G, F
You say I'm cute.
(F)                           F,  G, F
You don't know how much that hurts.
(F)         F           G       F
You don't know how it feels to live in your own dirt,
(F)      F    G    F
Like a monkey in a zoo.

F, C7

                        F, C/E, Dm
And it could happen to you.
(Dm)            F
You could be in my place.
C7                   F, C/E, Dm
Don't let yourself slip.
(Dm)                    G7
Don't keep egg on your face.

              F,  G, F
I used to be happy.
(F)                     F,  G, F
I can't remember those days.
(F)    F       G                F
But I sold my freedom for free room and board,
(F)      F    G    F    F
Like a monkey in a zoo.
