This one-shot from a South African band, Four Jacks and a Jill, peaked
at #18 in mid-68.  The stereo LP version (the 45 was a different take)
is available on CD on the Dick Bartley _Collector's Essentials: The
'60s_ compilation.  -- AWR

                             "Master Jack"
                         (David Markantonatas)

Note: The record sounds in B, but the fingerpicked electric is almost
certainly detuned a semi-tone and played in C.

Chorus 1 [w/fingerpicked electric]:

	        B                         E               B   [2-4: A Bb B]
	It's a strange, strange world we live in, Master Jack
	                                  E             B     [2-4: A Bb B]
	You taught me all I know and I'll   never look back
	        E                        F#                B  [2-4: A Bb B]
	It's a very strange world and I thank you, Master Jack

	(band enters)

Verse 1:

	     E                          B
	You took a colored ribbon from out of the sky
              E                             B
	And taught me how to use it as the years went by
	    E                            B
	To tie up all your problems and make them look neat
	     E                        F#
	And then to sell them to the people in the street

[repeat chorus 1]

Verse 2:

	I saw right through the way you started teaching me now
	So someday soon you could get to use me somehow
	I thank you very much, you know you've been very kind
	But I'd better move along before you change my mind

Chorus 2:

	It's a strange, strange world we live in, Master Jack
	No hard feelings if I never go back
	It's a very strange world and I thank you, Master Jack

Verse 3:

	You taught me all those things the way you'd like them to be
	But I'd like to see if other people agree
	It's all very interesting the way you disguise
	But I'd like to see the world through my own eyes

Chorus 3:

	It's a strange, strange world we live in, Master Jack
	No hard feelings if I never go back
	You're a very strange man and I thank you, Master Jack

Coda:

	          E                       F#               B   A Bb B
	You're a very strange man and I thank you, Master Jack
	          E [N.C.]           F# [N.C.]
	You're a very strange man - aren't you?

	           B    [rit.]  A  Bb  B  [end cold]
	Master... Jack

The "E" chord appearing immediately before each F# chord should actually be a C#m.
