Mean Mary - Methinks I See Thee Jane


CAPO: 2nd Fret


## NOTE: ~ = Walk-Down from C to Am ##



[Intro]
G   D   G   D

[Verse 1]
G                                 C                    D
When the hush of night lays deep, when the moon shines eerie red
G                                 C               D
When most watchers are asleep and even nightmares stay in bed
 C             D                                  C
I waited and I waited, to find the pictures in my mind
                       D                            C
But a scene I’d not created and those pictures intertwined
                 D                       C
Within a tangled dream, a firefly flits about
                 D                                        G
A scene almost unseen, just a flash, the flash goes out


[Chorus]
           D             C      G
With contradictions all about
      D                C       G
My convictions turn to doubt
        D        C         ~    Am
Oh, how bitter a thought’s free rein
           D         G      C  D  G   C  D
Methinks I see thee, Jane


[Verse 2]
    G                            C              D
Was that a gleam of golden hair, flashing here, flashing there
   G                              C             D                  C
Or just a dream caught unaware, a vision of the moonlight’s glare
                  D                         C
Hush, don’t say a word, your eyesight’s overwrought
                       D                          C
Maybe something really stirred, maybe so or maybe not
                   D                               C
No one is planting flowers in the prowling time of night
                        D                               G
But in these short dark hours, even memories can bite

 
[Chorus]
            D                 C       G
What’s that form there in the dark?
       D                C       G
Just a pine tree in the park?
    D             C    ~ Am
Oh, let me not be mad, insane
           D         G      C  D  G   C  D
Methinks I see thee, Jane
 

[Verse 3]
G                                C              D
When I finally think it through, finally master my confusion
G                           C                   D              C
Naughty shadows bend askew, charging through my grand illusion
                             D                     C
Who’s there, who goes, who’s going? My involuntary words
                           D                               C
Was it just the winds soft blowing, or nocturnal flocks of birds?
                    D                          C
Was it just the hesitation of a deer before it fled
               D                                     G
Was it my imagination, or was Jane somewhere ahead?


[Chorus]
            D                  C      G
A startled “Hey”, a faint “Goodbye”
      D                C     G
Then away, away she’ll fly
       D           C     ~ Am
Words, words, mere words remain
           D         G      C  D  G   C  D
Methinks I see thee, Jane


[Instrumental]
G


[Verse 4]
G                            C              D
High above the city streets, perched upon a window sill
 G                               C             D            C
Above the night-time city beats, sang a lonely whippoorwill
                        D                         C
I heard it’s melancholy song, I know she heard it too
                       D                            C
She’d been hidden all along, oh, she saw me and withdrew
                         D                     C
Has her minutes, has her ways, but always a survivor
                         D                                      G
Plays a part to make her plays, she knows what she’s alive for

 
[Chorus]
            D                C      G
To hide and seek or seek and hide
                D                      C       G
Through windows sneak, through locks untried
     D                        C  ~   Am
What light shines through yon window pane?
           D         G      C  D  G   C  D  C
Methinks I see thee, Jane


[Interlude]
     G  D    C
Woah-oh-oh
     G  D    C
Woah-oh-oh
     G  D    C
Woah-oh-oh
     G  D      G
Woah-oh-oh


 
[Chorus]
       D     C             G
Like a lady, like a child
       D      C            G
Always shady, always wild
            D             C      ~  Am
So foul and fair a day, deceives my brain
           D     C
Methinks I see
           D     C
Methinks I see
           D         G      C  D  G   C  D
Methinks I see thee, Jane
