Intro:     G   D   A   D             

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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