                      "The House That Jack Built"
                       (Bob Lance - Fran Robbins)

Intro:

	[acapella:]

	This is the house that Jack built, y'all

	Ab
	/ / / /  / / / /
	    Remember this house

Verse 1:

	 Ab
	This was the land that he worked by hand
	Db
	It was the dream of an upright man
	 Ab
	There was the room that was filled with love
	Db
	It was a love that I was proud of
	 Eb7
	This is the life, the life that he planned
	       Db7
	On the love, the same old love
	                  Ab
	In the house that Jack built (the house that Jack built)
	Remember this house

Verse 2:

	There was a fence that held our love (yes, it was)
	There was the gate that he walked out of
	This is the heart, it has turned to stone (yes, it is)
	This is a house, it ain't no home
	This was a love that I destroyed
	On the day that I toyed with love
	In the house that Jack built
	I'm gonna remember this house

Bridge:

	     Gb                 Ab
	Oh, what is the use of crying
	             Gb                              Ab
	You know I brought it on myself, there's no denying
	        Gb          Ab
	But it seems awful funny
	        Bb7
	That I didn't understand
	        Eb7
	Until I lost my upright man

Verse 3:

	Ab                                   Db
	   Up on the hill everything stands still
	                   Ab
	In the house that Jack built (the house that Jack built)
	                         Db
	I'm gonna remember this house (the house that Jack built)
	                    Ab
	Listen - I got the house, I got the car
	Db
	I got the rugs and I got the rent
	       Ab
	But I ain't got Jack
	And I want my Jack back

Horn break:

	Gb       Ab      Bb7      Eb7
	/ / / /  / / / /  / / / /  / / / /

Coda:

	    Ab                                              Db
	I turned my back on Jack, he said he wasn't comin' back
	                                                    Ab
	I turned my back on Jack, he said he wasn't comin' back

	     Ab               Db           [continue]
	Oh, Jack, you oughta come on back
	Oh, Jack   you oughta come on back (come on back, Jack)
	To the one that you built - it's the same one you built
	You oughta come on back, Jack    oh, now Jack
	I didn't understand   'til I lost my upright man
	Come on back, Jack    you oughta come on home now [fade]
