Jackie 
(Brel/Jouannest/Shuman) 
	
	Intro:  Cm Gm x4
	
	
	Verse 1
	
	
	Cm         Gm             Cm            Gm             Cm
	And if one day I should become a singer with a Spanish bum
	
	              Gm             Cm    Gm 
	Who sings for women of great virtue
	
	Cm          Gm             Cm               Gm            Cm
	I'd sing to them with a guitar I'd borrowed from a coffee bar
	
	               Gm                 Cm       Gm
	Well, what you don't know doesn't hurt you!
	
	C                     Cmaj7                         Gmaj6 
	My name would be Antonio and all my bridges I would burn
	
	                                 Cmaj7 C                        Dm  G Dm G
	And when I gave them some they'd know I'd expect something in return
	
	Dm                          Dm(maj7)                   Dm7
	I'd have to get drunk every night and talk about virility
	
	                            Dm6                                  E7
	With some old Grandmama who might be decked out like a Christmas tree
	
	Am              Em            Am                 Em               Am 
	And though pink elephants I'd see, though I'd be drunk as I could be
	
	              Em              Am           Dm7                 C 
	Still I would sing my song to me about the time they called me Jackie
	
	
	
	Chorus
	
	
	           C Cmaj7        Gmaj6 Cmaj7
	If I could be for only an hour
	
	           C         Cmaj7      Dm  G
	If I could be for an hour every day
	
	           Dm     Dm(maj7)        Dm7  Dm6  
	If I could be for just one little hour
	
	       G                          Cm Gm Cm Gm
	A cute cute in a stupid-assed way
	
	
	
	Verse 2
	
	
	Cm       Gm                Cm               Gm             Cm
	And if I joined the social world, became procurer of young girls
	
	             Gm             Cm    Gm
	Then I would have my own bordellos
	
	Cm        Gm              Cm               Gm             Cm
	My record would be number one and I'd sell records by the ton
	
	            Gm         Cm     Gm
	All sung by many other fellows
	
	C                              Cmaj7                         Gmaj6
	My name would then be Handsome Jack and I'd sell boats of opium
	
	                            Cmaj7 C                             Dm7 G  Dm7 G
	Whisky that came from Twickenham,   authentic queers and phoney virgins
	
	Dm                      Dm(maj7)                          Dm7
	If I had banks on every finger, a finger in every country
	
	                                 Dm6                       E7
	And all the countries ruled by me I'd still know where I'd want to be
	
	Am          Em            Am             Em           Am
	Locked up inside my opium den surrounded by some Chinamen
	
	             Em               Am             Dm7                 C
	I'd sing the song that I sang then about the time they called me Jackie
	
	
	repeat chorus
	
	
	
	Verse 3
	
	
	Cm          Gm             Cm               Gm         Cm 
	Now tell me wouldn't it be nice that if one day in Paradise
	
	             Gm             Cm       Gm
	I'd sing for all the ladies up there
	
	Cm             Gm              Cm             Gm            Cm
	And they would sing along with me, we'd be so happy, that'd be
	
	            Gm            Cm     Gm
	'Cos down below is really nowhere
	
	C                       Cmaj7                            Gmaj6
	And if my name were Juniper and I would know where I was going
	
	                   Cmaj7                    C             Dm7 G  Dm7 G 
	And I would become all-knowing, my beard so very long and flowing
	
	Dm                         Dm(maj7)                      Dm7
	If I became deaf, dumb and blind because I pitied all mankind
	
	                                  Dm6
	And broke my heart to make things right
	
	                    E7
	I'd know that every single night
	
	Am        Em             Am                 Em            Am
	When my angelic work was through the angels and the Devil too
	
	              Em                Am           Dm7                 C
	Would sing my childhood song to me about the time they called me Jackie
	
	
	repeat chorus
	
	
	Cm Gm x4 end on C
