[Intro]
[ch]Cadd2[/ch], G6/B, A7sus, G6/B (x2)

[Verse 1]
[ch]Cadd2[/ch]  G6/B      A7sus   G6/B             [ch]Cadd2[/ch]  G6/B  A7sus  G6/B
  The girl works at the store, sweet Jane Saint  Clair
[ch]Cadd2[/ch]  G6/B   A7sus   G6/B       [ch]Cadd2[/ch]     G6/B  A7sus G6/B
  Was dazzled by her smile while I shopped there
[ch]Cadd2[/ch]  G6/B   A7sus   G6/B    [ch]Cadd2[/ch]    G6/B  A7sus  G6/B
    It wasn't long before I lived with her
[ch]Cadd2[/ch]  G6/B     A7sus    G6/B      [ch]Cadd2[/ch]  G6/B  A7sus G6/B  Am
    I sang her songs ah while she dyed my hair

[Chorus]
Am D             G    Dsus/F#   Em7      D         Am
 Jane, divided, but I can't decide which side I'm on
Am D           G   Dsus/F#    Em7         D        Am
 Jane decided only cowards  stay, while traitors run
Am D
 Jane, Jane

[Instrumental]
[ch]Cadd2[/ch], G6/B, A7sus, G6/B (x2)

[Verse 2]
I'd bring her gold and frankincense and myrrh
She thought that I was making fun of her
She made me feel I was fourteen again
That's why she thinks it's cooler if we'd just stay friends

[Chorus]
Jane doesn't think a man could ever be faithful
Jane isn't giving me a chance to be shameful
Jane, Jane

[Bridge]
Bm        G                       C             Dadd94  Dadd94/D#  Em
I wrote a letter, she should have got it yesterday
Em                  F#m               Bm
That life could be better by being together
           C         Dadd94   [ch]Cadd2[/ch]
Is what I cannot explain    to Jane

[Instrumental]
[ch]Cadd2[/ch], G6/B, A7sus, G6/B (x2)

[Verse 3]
The girl works at the store, sweet Jane St. Clair
Still dazzled by her smile while I shoplift there
No promises as vague as Heaven
No Juliana next to my Evan

[Chorus]
Jane, desired by the people at her school and work
Jane is tired, 'cause every man becomes a lovesick jerk
Jane, Jane, Come on

[Coda]
[ch]Cadd2[/ch], G6/B, A7sus, G6/B (x8)

[End on Cadd2]
