        D                                  A                 D
at the door. Don't live you life inside an arrow filled with glances
         A             D                  F#m
New York City had your chances yes you've had em, yes you've had em

yes you've had em

      B              D                  B                     D
On a train devouring the land, there's a kid going insane over her man,
B          D         B                 A
insane over her man, insane over her...

A

           D                               A            F#m
reverend's door and if he hollers, let him out cuz he's gonna shout
        B                                  D

D                            Amaj7               F#m     Amaj7      F#m
Wrecked on the jungle floor, Jackie's dressed in cobras, giving me ideas.

What I really need now is ideas.

Repeat Intro

Verse 3:
A

         D                                               A
ballroom floor. ???Now split this bloodless??? lease for dancing.

This is "Jackie, Dressed in Cobras" not "Jackie." There's seems to be have been confusion about this before judging by the other tab's comments.
