Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics
Major upgrade!! After one year development the new version of Chordie is now online! Please give feedback.

Jennie  Richard Thompson


Here's Richard Thompson's "Jennie". This version is the acoustic
version from the "Watching in the Dark" anthology and I haven't
tested it against the studio version. Some base runs not noted
out cause they're different on every verse. Capo on the 4th
fret, but first, tune low E to D. All chords written as if in
first position.
D 000232 G 5x0033
Am x02210 C x32010
D/F# 4x0232 A x02220
Intro D
[D]Oh trouble becomes you
It [Am]cuts you down to my [D]size
And you never were less than [Am]perfect
In my [D]eyes
But I [D/F#]lost my [G]way somehow
For [A]three hard winters I [D/F#]held in till [G]now
Now I can't [D]help it
Oh [C]Jennie my l[D]ove
Oh [C]Jennie my [D]love
*Other verses same*
Now you pin up your hair like you did
When first we met
Oh how many days of his life
can a man regret
And if my tears were a train
Then I'd cry my way
Back into your arms again
Now I can't help it
Oh Jennie my love
Oh Jennie my love
Now I count the time we had
And the times we missed
Now I stand here love unsworn
And lips unkissed
And you don't know how hard I try
To kill the vision of you as
Another mans bride
Now I can't help it
Oh Jennie my love
Oh Jennie my love
Oh Jennie my love
Oh Jennie my love
