Intro:     F   C   G   C             

F
You say the world is doing fine
C
Except for the canaries down in the mine
G
they’re just not singing anymore
C
They’re lying lifeless on the floor

F
Some say love is like oxygen
C
And since you left me I’ve been suffering
G
Round and round like a weathervane I go
C
And I can’t find which way the wind will blow

F
In fact this whole thing is a mystery
C
And I’m feeling less and less free
G
Locked between the bars of my birth and my death
C
What my crime was well I can only guess

F
But you were the light in my darkness night
C
I was blind when you gave me sight
G
To see all that was beautiful
C
My empty life so lush lush and full

F
Oh your body was my temple of doom
C
A sanctuary and a living tomb
G
Where I was buried in two seconds flat
C
I know you said sometimes love is like that

F
But all I have left is a lock of your hair
C
At least I think it’s yours but baby I don’t care
G
I you gave me presents I can’t find them now
C
You said you did but I got my doubts

F
Because all you told me were sweet sweet lies
C
I could have been one a thousand guys
G
You could never get enough of you
C
Who were so shocked when their time was through

F
That’s it for me I’m on my way home
C
I’m singing the last verse of like a Rolling Stone
G
Rest assure I never wanted you to change
C
Into something refined or prearranged

F
Some say the world is doing fine
C
And those canaries are done their time
G
But I can’t hear them singing anymore
C
I’m nearly lifeless on your floor

(from here he usually starts playing open chords,
keep continuing the  F C G C)
