Verse 1:
He tells her,[C] I want to paint you naked on a [Em]big brass bed
[Am7]with bright orange poppies all a[F]round your head.
And she says, [C]Crazy old [F]man, I'm not [C]young any[F]more.
[Dm7]That's all right, he whispers, I've never [G7sus4]painted be[G7]fore.
[C]Do you love me Lady [F]Jane, Lady [C]Jane?
Do you [C]love me Lady [F]Jane, Lady [Gsus4]Jane?[G]
You got me [C]talkin' to the [Em]moon, you got me [Am7]walkin' in the [F]rain.
Do you [C]love me, do you [F]love me Lady [C]Jane?[(Gsus4] [G)]
Verse 2:
[C]I want to read your tea leaves by [Em]candle light.
On a [Am7]fat velvet sofa, I want to [F]be with you all night.
I want to [C]tickle your [F]feet with a [F]peacock [C]plume.
And she says, Can you [Dm7]talk a little softer,
there are [G7sus4]people in the [G7]room.
And Jane says[Bb6], my children brought me here
and [A7]promised me they'd call.
Well [Dm7]you know kids forget that's just the [G7sus4]way of it all.[G7]
And he says,[C] Well, that makes us [Em]both footloose and [Am7]fancy [F]free,
so [Dm7]Jane do you want to come see the Painted [Dm7/G]Desert with me?
Do you [F]love me like I [C]love you?
Do you [F]love me Lady [C]Jane?
