Capo 3

G             C                D
Spanish Johnny drove in from the underworld last night 
             G                          C
With bruised arms and broken rhythm in a beat-up old Buick 
    G                D
But dressed just like dynamite 
         G                       C                 D
He tried sellin' his heart to the hard girls over on Easy Street 
                G                       C                G                    D
But they sighed Johnny it falls apart so easy and you know hearts these days are cheap 
        C                                              G
And the pimps swung their axes and said Johnny you're a cheater 
         C                                              G
Well the pimps swung their axes and said Johnny you're a liar 
         C                                                             G
And from out of the shadows came a young girl's voice said Johnny don't cry 


C     C/B  Am   C/B 
Puerto Rican Jane 
C C/B      Am      C/B        G     
oh won't you tell me what's your name 
          C        C/B        Am            C/B
I want to drive you down to the other side of town 
      C                C/B    
Where paradise ain't so crowded there'll be 
Am           C/B           G
action goin' down on Shanty Lane tonight 
         D                          C
All them golden-heeled fairies in a real bitch fight 
                       G                  D
Pull thirty eights and kiss the girls good night 


CHORUS 1:
   G               C      D
Oh good night, it's alright Jane 
             G         C              D
Now let them black boys in to light the soul flame 
       G                 C             D
We may find it out on the street tonight baby 
   G            C               D
Or we may walk until the daylight maybe 


            G            C                     D
Well like a cool Romeo he made his moves, oh she looked so fine 
       G                        C                     G                     D
Like a late Juliet she knew he'd never be true but then she didn't really mind 
           G                   C                                 D
Upstairs a band was playin' the singer was singin' something about goin' home 
                      G                         C                   G             D
She whispered Spanish Johnny, you can leave me tonight but just don't leave me alone


                 C     C/B  Am  C/B
And Johnny cried Puerto Rican Jane
C      C/B     Am        C/B      G     
Word is down the cops have found the vein
        C       C/B            Am            C/B
Oh them barefoot boys left their homes for the woods 
            C              C/B          Am             C/B
Them little barefoot street boys they say homes ain't no good 
              G     D                     C
They left the corners threw away all their switchblade knives
    G                    D
And kissed each other goodbye 


           G                         C                                 D
Johnny was sittin' on the fire escape watchin' the kids playin' down the street 
               G                          C
He called down Hey little heroes, summer's long 
                                       D
But I guess it ain't very sweet around here anymore 
      G                         C
Janey sleeps in sheets damp with sweat
                         D
Johnny sits up alone and watches her dream on, dream on 
        G                    
And the sister prays for lost souls
     C                        D
Then breaks down in the chapel after everyone's gone 
G                   
Jane moves over to share her pillow 
    C                                  D
But opens her eyes to see Johnny up and putting his clothes on 
                 C
She says those romantic young boys 
         G
All they ever want to do is fight 
        C
Those romantic young boys they're callin' through the window 
                                G                         D
Hey Spanish Johnny, you want to make a little easy money tonight?

And Johnny whispered


CHORUS 2:
G               C        D
Good night, it's all tight Jane 
     G                C               D
I'll meet you tomorrow night on Lover's Lane 
       G                 C             D
We may find it out on the street tonight baby 
   G            C               D
Or we may walk until the daylight maybe 


CHORUS 3:
   G               C        D
Oh Good night, it's all right Jane 
          G                C               D
I'm gonna meet you tomorrow night on Lover's Lane 
          G                 C             D
Oh we can find it out on the street tonight baby 
   G            C               D
Or we may walk until the daylight maybe 


CHORUS 4:
   G               C        D
Ah Good night, it's all right Jane 
     G                C               D
I'll meet you tomorrow night on Lover's Lane 
           G                      C             D
Now we may find it out on...on the street tonight baby 
          G                     C            D
Or we may have to walk until the morning light ahhh
