Intro: 
Dm G Dm G Dm G D5


D5They say there's an underground river,
That none of us can see, And it flows through winding tunnels,
F G D5On its way to a tide-less sea.
D5And across that sea is an island,
A paradise we are told, Where the toils of life are forgotten,
F G D5And they call it the Island of Souls.
Bb C DFor only a soul can go there,
Bb C DA soul that's been set free,
Bb C DFrom the confines of a working life,
F G DTo find eternity.
D5Your old man had a cage for his pigeons,
But that's really where he kept his soul, And when he watched them fly he would see himself, Least that's how it was told.
Bb C DBut his soul was still trapped in the cage son,
Bb C AmWhile the birds they soared to the sky,
F G DBut he couldn't find his own way out,
F G DLeast not 'til the day he died.
D5Oh, a man builds a cage with the tools he is given,
His casket is sealed with a riveter's gun, This solitary madness is where he is driven,
F G D AmIt was him who was trapped in the soul cage son.
F G D5It was him that was trapped in the soul cage.
D5I know that he loved you, but he hadn't the words,
He'd be easier speaking the language of birds, For to speak of emotion, it just wasn't done,
F G D AmIt was him who was trapped in the soul cage son.
F G D5It was him that was trapped in the soul cage.
D5Oh, a man builds a cage with the tools he is given,
His casket is sealed with a riveter's gun, This solitary madness is where he is driven,
F G D AmIt was him who was trapped in the soul cage son.
F G D5It was him that was trapped in the soul cage.
D5
