...JUMP STURDY... by Dr. John
-----------------............

*from 'Gris Gris' (1968)*


Chorus 1:

Dm                         F
 Jump Sturdy, Jump Sturdy, was her name;
    Bb7                        A7
She came out the swamps like a crazy fool.
G                          F
 Jump Sturdy, Jump Sturdy, was her name;
    Bb7                        A7    Dm
She came out the swamps like a crazy fool.

Dm                         F
 Jump Sturdy, Jump Sturdy, was her name;
    Bb7                        A7
She came out the swamps like a crazy fool.
G                          F
 Jump Sturdy, Jump Sturdy, was her name;
    Bb7                        A7    Dm
She came out the swamps like a crazy fool.

Verse 1:

Am  Dm              Am      Dm                  Am
     People say she used to dance with the fish,
Dm                   Am      Dm              Am
 Some people say she juggled fire in a dish.
Dm          Am     Dm             Am
 Clear days on the Bayou St John,
Dm                        Am       Dm               Am
 She raised her hands and caused e-lectrical storms.

Bridge 1:
[ Tab from: http://www.guitaretab.com/d/dr-john/176653.html ]
Dm                   F         Bb7              A7
 She was a trachrous lady; she never meant much harm.
G                            F
 One day she ducked past the station house;
    E7                   A7
She turned on the fire a-larm.

Verse 2:

Dm               Am              Dm          Am
 Somehow she got tangled up with Queen Julia Jackson,
Dm              Am           Dm             Am
 Down on Melba, meeting near Rattle Street.
Dm                   Am        Dm
 Queen Julia Jackson dropped a zozola brick,
    Dm               Am       Dm              Am
And Jump Sturdy died with her soul, in defeat.

Chorus 2:

Dm                         F
 Jump Sturdy, Jump Sturdy, was her name;
    Bb7                        A7
She came out the swamps like a crazy fool.
G                          F
 Jump Sturdy, Jump Sturdy, was her name;
    Bb7                        A7    Dm
She came out the swamps like a crazy fool.

Dm                         F
 Jump Sturdy, Jump Sturdy, was her name;
    Bb7                        A7
She came out the swamps like a crazy fool.
G                          F
 Jump Sturdy, Jump Sturdy, was her name;
    Bb7                        A7    Dm
She came out the swamps like a crazy fool.

Coda:

Dm             F
 Jump Sturdy...Jump Sturdy...
Bb7        A7
 Was her...name.
