by Bob Dylan

Verse 1
    / D
The / festival was over, and
    / G                            / D
The / boys were all plannin' for a / fall.
     / D
The / cabaret was quiet,
     / G                           / D
Ex - / cept for the drillin' in the / wall.
    / G         -      D
The / curfew had been lifted and
    / A           -         D
The / gamblin' wheel shut down,
G         -        D
Anyone with any sense,
    / A      -        A
Had / a -  ready left town.
        / D
He was / standin' in the doorway
G          -       A         / D     / /
Lookin' like the Jack of Hear - / arts. / /

Verse 2
   / D
He / moved across the mirrored room,
    / G                      / D
"Set em up for everyone," he / said,
     / D
Then / everyone commenced to do,
     / G          / 
What / they'd been doin',
    / G         -        / D
Be - fore he moved their / heads.
        / G           -        D
Then he / walked up to a stranger, and
   / A         -       D
He / asked him with a grin,
            / G      -        D
"Could you / kindly tell me, mister,
     /A                     A
What / time the show be - gins?"
   / D
He / moved into the corner,
G          -          A           / D   / /
Face down like the Jack of Hear - / arts

Verse 3
     / D
Back - stage the girls were playin'
    /G                 / D
Five-card stud by the / stairs,
     / D
Lily had two queens,
        / G              / D
She was / hopin' for a third,
    / G      /D
To match her / pair.
      / G           -            D
Out - / side the streets were fillin' up, and
  /A         -        D
A / window was open wide,
    / G        -        D
A / gentle breeze was blowin',
      A                   A
You could / feel it from in - side.
    / D
Lily called a - nother bet, and
G          -   A           / D   / /
Drew up the Jack of Hear - / arts.

Verse 4
     / D
Big Jim was no one's fool,
    / G                          / D
He owned the town's only diamond / mine,
   / D
He / made his usual entrance,
      / G                   / D
Lookin' all so dandy and so / fine.
         / G         -           D
With his / bodyguards and silver cane, and
    / A  -     D
Every hair in place,
   /G         -              D
He / took whatever he wanted to, and
   / A      -        A
He / laid it all to waste,.
        / D
But his / bodyguards and his silver cane,
G          -                     A          / D   / /
They were / no match for the Jack of Hear - / arts

Verse 5
        / D
Rose - / mary co - ombed her hair, and
    / G                / D
Took the carriage into / town,
    / D
She / slipped into the side door,
      / G                      / D
Lookin' like a queen without a / crown.
    / G         -            D
She / fluttered her false eyelashes and
    / A   -      D
Whispered in his ear,
     /G             -            D
"I'm / sorry, darlin', that I'm late,"
        / A      -        A
But he / didn't seem to hear.
        / D
He was / starin' into space,
G      -      A            / D   / /
Over at the Jack of Hear - / arts.

Verse 6
        / D
"Well I / know I've seen that face somewhere,"
    / G                       / D
Big Jim was thinkin' to him - / self,
     / D
"Maybe down in Mexico or
  / G                             / D
A / picture up - on some - body's / shelf."
             / G         -      D
But then the / crowd began to stamp their feet, and
    / A           -         D
The / house lights did dim, and
       G        -       D
In the darkness of the room,
          / A      -     A
There was / only Jim and him,
   / D
Starin' at the butterfly,
G      -        A                        / D   / /
Who / just up drew up the Jack of Hear - / arts

Verse 7
          / D
Lily was a princess,
    / G                             / D
She was / fair-skinned and precious as a / child,
    / D
She / had that certain something
     / G        / 
Was a kind of a flash,,
               / D
Every time she / smiled.
      / G             -          D
She'd / come away from a broken home,
    /A         -       D
Had / lots of strange af - fairs,
     / G      -              D
With / men in every walk of life,
     /A                 A
Who / took her every - where.
          / D
But she'd / never met any - one
G      -        A             / D   / /
Quite like the Jack of Hear - / arts.

Verse 8
    / D                          /G
The / hangin' judge came in un - / noticed, and
    /G               / D
Was being wined and / dined,
    / D
The / drillin' in the wall kept up,
    / G                           / D
But / no one seemed to pay it any / mind.
       / G           -  D
It was / known all a - round,
     / A           -         D
That / Lily had Jim's ring, and
  G         -       D
Nothing would ever come,
        / A      -        A
Between / Lily and the king.
    / D
No, / nothin' ever could,
G      -              A              / D   / /
Ex - / cept maybe the Jack of Hear - / arts.

Verse 9
     / D
Rosemary started drinkin' hard and
    / G                         / D
Seein' her re - flection in the / knife,
        / D
She was / tired of the at - tention,
         / G                           / D
Tired of playin' the role of Big Jim's / wife.
        / G         -       D
She had / done a lot of bad things,
     / A              -   D
Even / once tried sui - cide,
    /G         -                   /A
Was / lookin' to do just one good  / deed
      -     A
Before she died.
        / D
She was / gazin' to the future,
G      -      A              / D   / /
Riding on the Jack of Hear - / arts

Verse 10
     / D
Lily took her dress off,
    / G       / D
Buried it a - / way.
          / D
"Has your / luck run out?" she laughed at him,
   / G                                         / D
"I / guess you must have known it would some - / day.
   /G                        D
Be/careful not to touch the wall’

          / A                 D
There’s a /brand-new coat of paint,
    /G            -             D
I'm / glad to see you're still alive, and
       / A      -        A
You're / lookin' like a saint."
         / D
Down the hallway footsteps
     /G      -         A             / D   / /
Were / comin' for the Jack of Hear - / arts

Verse 11

The / Backstage manager was / pacin',
    / G              / D
All a - round by his / chair.
         / D
"There's / somethin' funny going on,
    / G                               / D
" I / know, I can just feel it in the / air."
   / G         -              D
He / went to get the hangin' judge,
        / A           -         D
But the / hangin' judge was drunk, and
    /G         -        D
The / leading actor hurried by
       / A      -     A
In the / costume of a monk.
                 / D
But there was no / actor any - where,
G      -         A             / D   / /
Better than the Jack of Hear - / arts.

Verse 12
     / D                        /G
Lili had her arms a - round the / man
    / G             / D
She dearly loved to / touch,
          / D
She for - / got all a - bout the man,
    / G                        / D
She / hated who hounded her so / much,
  / G                 -      D
I / missed you so she said to him, and
   / A          -      D
He / thought she was sincere
    /G         -        D
But / in the hallway he fou - ound
 / A  -      A
Jealousy and fear
                 / D
Just another night in the / 
G      -     A             / D   / /
life of the Jack of Hear - / arts

Verse 13
     / D
No one knew the circumstance
    / G                             / D
But / they say that it happened pretty / quick,
    / D                               /G
The / door to the dressing room burst / open and
    / G         / D
A cold revolver / clicked, and
    / G         -      D
Big Jim was standin' there,
    / A           -         D
You / couldn't say sur - prised,

Rose - / mary right be - side him,
  /A      -    A
Steady in her eyes.

She was / with Big Jim,
G      -    /A                              / D   / /
But she was / leanin' to the Jack of Hear - / arts

Verse 14
     / D
Two doors down and the / boys,
    / G                     / D
Finally made it through the / wall, and
     / D
They / cleaned out the bank safe,
      / G                      / D
Said they got off with quite a / haul, and
       / G         -      D
In the / darkness of the riverbed,
     / A         -     D
They / waited on the ground,
    /G     -     D
For / one more member,
    / A      -        A
Who had / business back in town.
         / D
But they / couldn't go no further,
G      -        A             / D   / /
With - out the Jack of Hear - / arts.

Verse 15
         / D
Well the / next day was hangin' day,
    / G                    / D
The / sky was overcast and / black,
    / D
Big Jim lay covered up,
      / G                   / D
Killed by a penknife in the / back, and
       / G         -     D
Rose - / mary on the gallows,
         / A      -    D
Lord she / didn't even blink,
    /G         -        D
The / hangin' judge was sober,
         / A      -        A
Lord, he / hadn't had a drink and,
    / D
The / only person on the scene
G      -        A              / D   / /
Missing was the Jack of Hear - / arts

Verse 16
         / D
Well the / cabaret was quiet now, and
  / G                           / D
A / sign said, "Closed for re - / pair,"
     / D
Lily had already taken / all of the dye
  / G      / D
Out of her / hair.
        / G         -          D
She was / thinkin' about her  father,
        / A      -     D
Who she / very rarely saw,
    G         -     D
Thinkin' about Rosemary, and
    /A      -      A
Thinkin' about the law.
     / D                       /G
But, / most of a - all she was / thinkin'
      -    A             / D   / /
About the Jack of Hear - / arts.
