Bruce Cockburn – Pacing The Cage tab

This is a very beautiful song by Cockburn and I thought it would be nice to put the
actual chords up. This song is played by finger picking but I'm too lazy to tasb that
out, so here are the chords.

Capo III

C      G/B           F2/A
Sunset is an angel weeping
C       G/B            F2/A
Holding out a bloody sword
C         G/B              F2/A
No matter how I squint I cannot
C        G/B                  F2/A
Make out what it's pointing toward
F                              G
Sometimes you feel like you've lived too long
Am                                 F
Days drip slowly on the page
You catch yourself
G               F          G
Pacing the cage
C           G/B                F2/A
I've proven who I am so many times
C            G/B           F2/A
The magnetic strips worn thin
C             G/B              F2/A
And each time I was someone else
C         G/B            F2/A
And everyone was taken in
F                       G
Powers chatter in high places
Am                                       F
Stir up eddies in the dust of rage
G                        F              G
Set me to pacing the cage
C       G/B                F2/A
I never knew what you  all wanted
C    G/B              F2/A
So I gave you everything
C        G/B       F2/A
All that I could pillage
C       G/B                   F2/A
All the spells that I could sing
F                          G
It's as if the thing were written
Am                                F
In the constitution of the age
Sooner or later you'll wind up
G               F            G
Pacing the cage


C             G/B                       F2/A
Sometimes the best map will not guide you
C         G/B                    F2/A
You can't see what's round the bend
C             G/B                       F2/A
Sometimes the road leads through dark places
C             G/B                F2/A
Sometimes the darkness is your friend
F                     G
Today these eyes scan bleached out land
Am                                              F
For the coming of the outbound stage
G              F             
Pacing the cage
G               F         C
Pacing the cage
