Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Jaques Lamure  Of Montreal

[C]Jacques Lamure is a volunteer [F]fireman
[Em]He longs to give his l[A]ife
[G#]Saving a nice old man and his [C#]wife
[Bb]When their house is filled with flames
[G]Earning him honor and fame

[C]Jacques Lamure is a foreman at a c[F]lock factory
[Em]He wishes he were b[A]oss
[G#]So he could fire that scoundrel William [C#]Moss
[Bb]Who always puts him down
[G]When Megan Blanchard is around
[Dm]He told himself last year
[C]that when springtime was here
[Bb]He would suddenly appear at Meg's [C#]door
He'd rent a [G#]mariachi band and r[Cm]espectfully demand
[A]His dear Meg to take his hand
And to be [B]his forever [E]more
But of course he didn't [E7]dare
[A]and pretended not to [F#]care
About the i[G]nsult or the [C]loss
When he f[C#]ound out she'd married William M[D]oss [A]   [F#]
[C]Jacques Lamure goes to see a show
[F]every other Friday night
[Em]He likes the westerns [A]best
[G#]He'd rather be a sheriff with a gold star on his [C#]chest
[Bb]Than that weird guy who never says a word
[G]And when spoken to pretends he hadn't heard
[Dm]He realized one day that he [C]didn't have to stay
[Bb]That he could move as far away as planes could [C#]fly
[G#]He chuckled as he mused
[Cm]About the people who had rused him
And [A]how shocked and confused that they would [B]be
When he says [E]goodbye and never turns a[E7]round
[A]Never returns to that miserable t[F#]own
[G]Then as weeks passed he soon did [C]find
This move had gr[C#]eatly improved his state of [D]mind[A]   [F#]
