Jackie 
(Brel/Jouannest/Shuman) 
	
	Intro:  Gm Dm x4
	
	
	Verse 1
	
	
	Gm         Dm             Gm            Dm             Gm
	And if one day I should become a singer with a Spanish bum
	
	              Dm             Gm    Dm 
	Who sings for women of great virtue
	
	Gm          Dm             Gm               Dm            Gm
	I'd sing to them with a guitar I'd borrowed from a coffee bar
	
	               Dm                 Gm       Dm
	Well, what you don't know doesn't hurt you!
	
	G                     Gmaj7                         Gmaj6 
	My name would be Antonio and all my bridges I would burn
	
	                                 Gmaj7 G                        Am  D Am D
	And when I gave them some they'd know I'd expect something in return
	
	Am                          Am(maj7)                   Am7
	I'd have to get drunk every night and talk about virility
	
	                            Am6                                  B7
	With some old Grandmama who might be decked out like a Christmas tree
	
	Em              Bm            Em                 Bm               Em 
	And though pink elephants I'd see, though I'd be drunk as I could be
	
	              Bm              Em           Am7                 G 
	Still I would sing my song to me about the time they called me Jackie
	
	
	
	Chorus
	
	
	           G Gmaj7        Gmaj6 Gmaj7
	If I could be for only an hour
	
	           G         Gmaj7      Am  D
	If I could be for an hour every day
	
	           Am     Am(maj7)        Am7  Am6  
	If I could be for just one little hour
	
	       D                          Gm Dm Gm Dm
	A cute cute in a stupid-assed way
	
	
	
	Verse 2
	
	
	Gm       Dm                Gm               Dm             Gm
	And if I joined the social world, became procurer of young girls
	
	             Dm             Gm    Dm
	Then I would have my own bordellos
	
	Gm        Dm              Gm               Dm             Gm
	My record would be number one and I'd sell records by the ton
	
	            Dm         Gm     Dm
	All sung by many other fellows
	
	G                              Gmaj7                         Gmaj6
	My name would then be Handsome Jack and I'd sell boats of opium
	
	                            Gmaj7 G                             Am7 D  Am7 D
	Whisky that came from Twickenham,   authentic queers and phoney virgins
	
	Am                      Am(maj7)                          Am7
	If I had banks on every finger, a finger in every country
	
	                                 Am6                       B7
	And all the countries ruled by me I'd still know where I'd want to be
	
	Em          Bm            Em             Bm           Em
	Locked up inside my opium den surrounded by some Chinamen
	
	             Bm               Em             Am7                 G
	I'd sing the song that I sang then about the time they called me Jackie
	
	
	repeat chorus
	
	
	
	Verse 3
	
	
	Gm          Dm             Gm               Dm         Gm 
	Now tell me wouldn't it be nice that if one day in Paradise
	
	             Dm             Gm       Dm
	I'd sing for all the ladies up there
	
	Gm             Dm              Gm             Dm            Gm
	And they would sing along with me, we'd be so happy, that'd be
	
	            Dm            Gm     Dm
	'Cos down below is really nowhere
	
	G                       Gmaj7                            Gmaj6
	And if my name were Juniper and I would know where I was going
	
	                   Gmaj7                    G             Am7 D  Am7 D 
	And I would become all-knowing, my beard so very long and flowing
	
	Am                         Am(maj7)                      Am7
	If I became deaf, dumb and blind because I pitied all mankind
	
	                                  Am6
	And broke my heart to make things right
	
	                    B7
	I'd know that every single night
	
	Em        Bm             Em                 Bm            Em
	When my angelic work was through the angels and the Devil too
	
	              Bm                Em           Am7                 G
	Would sing my childhood song to me about the time they called me Jackie
	
	
	repeat chorus
	
	
	Gm Dm x4 end on G
