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.

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
