Lines: 93
I've grabbed a lot of stuff from here without posting anything, so I thought
I'd post something that's on the most.wanted list at ftp.nevada...
Here are the chords to Jackie Brown by John Mellancamp. Also, there is one
recognizable little riff that appears throughout the song, which goes like
this:
 
 e ---------------------------------------------|
 B ---------------------------------------------|
 G --------0-----------------------0------------|
 D ----0-2---2-0---0-2---------0-2---2-0---0----|
 A --3-----------3-----------3-----------3---3--|
 E ---------------------------------------------|

C/G is C with G bass added: 3-3-2-0-1-0
(Also, I believe this is capo'd on the 4th fret)
JACKIE BROWN - John Mellencamp
 
 ------------------------------

[C/G]Is this your life, Jackie Brown?
Poorly educated and forced to live on the
[Em]poor side of town
[C/G]Is this your daughter, Jackie Brown?
This pretty little girl in worn out clothes that have
[Em]been hand-me-down
[C/G]Is this your wife, Jackie Brown?
Sad blue eyes, walking on eggshells, so you
[Em]don't see her frown
[F]Is this your [G]family Jackie [C/G]Brown?
[F]Dream of vacationing in a [C/G]mountain stream
[Am]and giving the world more than it gave [G]you
[F]What ugly truths free[C/G]dom brings
[Am]and it hasn't been very kind to [G]you
[F]Is this your [G]family, Jacki[C/G]e Brown?
[C/G]Is this your meal, Jackie Brown?
Barely enough, I've seen people throw more
[Em]than this out
[C/G]Is this your home, Jackie Brown?
This three room shack, with no running water
[Em]and the bathroom out back
[C/G]Is this your grave, Jackie Brown?
This little piece of limestone that says another desperate man
[Em]took himself out
[F]Is this your [G]dream, Jackie [C/G]Brown?
[F]Going nowhere, and [C/G]nowhere fast
[Am]We shame ourselves to watch people like this [G]live
[F]But who gives a damn about [C/G]Jackie Brown
[Am]Just another lazy man who could [G]take what was his
[F]One hell of a [G]life, Jackie [C/G]Brown
[F]Forever [G]more, Jackie [C/G]Brown
[F]Well am[G]en-n-amen, Ja[C/G]ckie Brown
