The Ballad Of Jenny Ledge


E
Jenny was raised in a house of cards A face that could hijack your breath
              A                   F#                 E
The legs of a thoroughbred That's what they said of Jenny Ledge
E
Into the fray with a Royal Flush Determined to bring home the gold
                   A                   F#                E       B
And drink from the fountainhead That's what she said, my Jenny Ledge


C#m     B             G#m       F#           F°         E      B
How I wished I could answer her prayer To be held by an honest man
C#m     B             G#m      F#           F°         E       B      D#m    G#m
How I wished I could always be there But my love was not in her plans   Ohh   ooh 


G#m     F#      A           B         E           G
Tempted by half-Elvis, half man-about-town And a life of ease 
G#m      F#           A     G#m        E                       
She runs off with the Vegas King  I've nowhere to stand, 
  G                    G/B                  B
I can't understand Why Jenny won't wait for me


E
Later I held her and asked her why "This is my house and this is my car
        A                   F#                E       B
and this is my bed!" That's what she said, my Jenny Ledge


C#m     B       G#m       F#     F°           E        B
Just a slave to security She has forgotten the urge to win
C#m     B       G#m         F#         F°              E       B      D#m      G#m
All she has is a king and a pair And a tear for what might have been  Oh-oo    oohh


G#m     F#      A           B         E           G
Tempted by half-Elvis, half man-about-town And a life of ease 
G#m      F#           A     G#m        E                       
She runs off with the Vegas King  I've nowhere to stand, 
  G                    G/B                  B
I can't understand Why Jenny won't wait for me

*Interlude over verse*

E
So this is the ballad of Jenny Ledge My anger unspoken
                        A            F#              E       B
My eyes are learning to cry instead Love is dead for Jenny Ledge


C#m      B              G#m          F#           F°         E       B
Once she stood with the world at her feet And the love of an honest man
C#m     B                G#m           F#        F°         E     B    D#m     G#m
Now she sleeps while the world marches by In the care of an also-ran   Oh-oo     ooh


G#m     F#      A           B         E           G
Tempted by half-Elvis, half man-about-town And a life of ease 
G#m      F#           A     G#m        E                       
She runs off with the Vegas King  I've nowhere to stand, 
  G               
I can't understand

G#m     F#      A           B         E           G
Tempted by half-Elvis, half man-about-town And a life of ease 
G#m      F#           A     G#m        E                       
She runs off with the Vegas King  I've nowhere to stand, 
  G                    G/B                  B
I can't understand Why Jenny won't wait for me
