Out Of Jail
by They Might Be Giants
Transcribed by Adam Lane

This is a really simple tune, and not origionally one of my favorites
on John Henry, but lately I've noticed how much fun it is to play.

Intro
E F G

Verse
G               C                    G              D
Long before the screen door slammed, she was out of xenia
  G                   C                G              D
A stranger could have loved that town, but she had to leave

Chorus
  Am                 D          Am             D
I wish I'd gotten to know her before I fell in love
        G                   Am
I could say who's to blame, say who's the man in this
F          D
cautionary tale
      G                          Am
But I swore I'd be true and I'll swear and I'll swear
    F               D
Til kitten's out of jail

Verse
It was like a TV show, the way she stole that car
Easy now to criticize, easy now to talk

Chorus
I thought my luck was changing, I guess I was wrong
I could say who's to blame, say who's the man in this
cautionary tale
But I swore I'd be true and I'll swear and I'll swear
Til kitten's out of jail

Bridge
Em     F    C       G
Didn't want to be a slave
Em          F   G
just turned out that way

(Organ solo:listen for the rythm)
G Am F D  G Am F D

Chorus
I thought my luck was changing, I guess I was wrong
I could say she's to blame, say she's the man in this
cautionary tale
But I swore I'd be true and I'll swear and I'll swear
Til kitten's out of jail

Outro
G Am F D (Repeat this A couple times, then end on G)
