Subject: CRD Richard Thompson's "Jennie"
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

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
