          Jumpin’ Jack Flash – The Rolling Stones
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: maguri
Tuning: Standard

The Rolling Stones
Jumpin’ Jack Flash 
(Jagger/Richards)

Originally a non-album single (1968)

The studio recording is somewhere in between Bb and B. Either the tuning 
was sharp/flat during recording or the tape speed was changed during
mixdown.

My reading here is for a single acoustic guitar accompaniment. It can be
played without using the tabs at all; in this case play the voicings given
in the [Chords] section. The riff and melody provided in the tabs may be 
a little tricky to play while singing, but with a little practice 
they sound good.

Check out my short demo recording to hear what this tab sounds like:

[Verse]
      A         G5/A            | A | G5/A |
I was born in a cross-fire hurricane 
      A            G5/A             | A | G5/A |
And I howled at my ma in the driving rain
         C   G     D                   A  
But it's all right now, in fact it's a gas
         C   G          D
But it's all right, I'm Jumpin' Jack Flash

I was raised by a toothless, bearded hag
      A               G5/A                  | A | G5/A |
I was schooled with a strap right across my back
         C   G     D                   A  
But it's all right now, in fact it's a gas

      A              G5/A                   | A | G5/A |
I was drowned, I was washed up and left for dead
       A          G5/A               | A | G5/A |
I fell down to my feet and I saw they bled
  A              G5/A                |  A  |  G5/A  |
I frowned at the crumbs of a crust of bread, yeah, yeah, yeah 
      A              G5/A              |  A  |  G5/A  |
I was crowned with a spike right thru my head
         C   G     D                   A
But it's all right now, in fact it's a gas

A                   D      G5/C  G/B
Jumping Jack Flash, it s a gas
