A (pm)                                               
Look, we've seen this kind of thing before. Jackie threads with Cobras
        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...

reverend's door and if he hollers, let him out cuz he's gonna shout

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.

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

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.
