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):

G D CE :-----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.
G, D, CI'm chained to the wall.
(C) G, D, CI have nothin' at all.
(C) G D CAnd my eyes look into the sunset thinkin' of better things to do,
(C) G D CLike a monkey in a zoo.
G, D, CThe days go so slow.
(C) G, D, CI don't have no friends.
(C) G D CExcept all these people who want me to do tricks for them,
(C) G D CLike a monkey in a zoo.
G, G7
C, G/B, AmAnd it could happen to you.
(Am) GYou could be in my place.
G7 C, G/B, AmNo it wasn't always like this,
(Am) D7But I never saw it comin'.
G, D, CI'm so alone,
(C) G, D, CBut this is my home.
(C) G D CAnd the bars that surround me keep me from knowin' any better,
(C) G D CLike a monkey in a zoo.
G, D, CThrow me a peanut.
(C) G, D, CLaugh and make jokes.
(C) G D CBut I've had enough of peanuts and I'm ready to choke,
(C) G D CLike a monkey in a zoo.
G, G7
C, G/B, AmYou come to look at me.
(Am) GYou seem so amused.
G7 C, G/B, AmBut things would look different
(Am) D7If you were in my shoes.
G, D, CI know its my fault,
(C) G, D, CBut I want out.
(C) G D CAnd when I cry out nobody seems to understand,
(C) G D CLike a monkey in a zoo.
G, D, CYou say I'm cute.
(C) G, D, CYou don't know how much that hurts.
(C) G D CYou don't know how it feels to live in your own dirt,
(C) G D CLike a monkey in a zoo.
G, G7
C, G/B, AmAnd it could happen to you.
(Am) GYou could be in my place.
G7 C, G/B, AmDon't let yourself slip.
(Am) D7Don't keep egg on your face.
G, D, CI used to be happy.
(C) G, D, CI can't remember those days.
(C) G D CBut I sold my freedom for free room and board,
(C) G D C GLike a monkey in a zoo.
