Billie Jean Acoustic

Chris Cornell

 Em
 She was more like a beauty queen from a movie scene
 Am
I said don't mind, but what do you mean I am the one
 Em
Who will dance on the floor in the round
 AmEm
She said I am the one, who will dance on the floor in the round

She told me her name was Billie Jean, as she caused a scene
 Am
Then every head turned with eyes that dreamed of being the one
 Em
Who will dance on the floor in the round

Bridge:
 CEm
 People always told me be careful of what you do
 CEm
Don't go around breaking young girls' hearts
 CEm
And mother always told me be careful of who you love
 CB7
And be careful of what you do before the lie becomes the truth

Chorus:
 EmAmEmGadd9/EEm
 Billie Jean is not my lover    
 AmEmAmBmadd11/A
She's just a girl who says that I am the one  
 Gadd11/ABm7/AEm
But the kid is     not   my son
 Am
She says I am the one
 Gadd11/ABm7/AEm
But the kid is     not   my son

Verse 2:
 Em
 For forty days and for forty nights. The law was on her side.
 Am
But who can stand when she's in demand. Her schemes and plans.
 Em
'Cause we danced on the floor in the round
 AmEm
So take my strong advice, remember to always think twice
(Do think twice)

Verse 3:
 Em
 She told my baby we'd danced till three, then she looked at me
 Am
Then showed a photo my baby cried his eyes were like mine
 Em
'Cause we danced on the floor in the round

Bridge:
 CEm
 People always told me be careful of what you do
 CEm
Don't go around breaking young girls' hearts
 CEm
Then she stood right by me. The smell of sweet perfume.
 CB7
This happened much too soon. She called me to her room.

Chorus:
 EmAmEmGadd9/EEm
 Billie Jean is not my lover    
 AmEmAmBmadd11/A
She's just a girl who says that I am the one  
 Gadd11/ABm7/AEm
But the kid is     not   my son
 Am
She says I am the one
 Gadd11/ABm7/AEm
But the kid is     not   my son
 AmEm
So take my strong advice, remember to always think twice
(Do think twice)
