                 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'
[ Tab from: ]
(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.
