INTRO:  Bb  Eb  Bb  Eb  Bb  Eb  F  Eb
        Bb  Eb  Bb  Eb


Bb             Eb                F
Spanish Johnny drove in from the underworld last night 
             Bb                          Eb
With bruised arms and broken rhythm in a beat-up old Buick 
    Bb                F
But dressed just like dynamite 
         Bb                       Eb                 F
He tried sellin' his heart to the hard girls over on Easy Street 
                Bb                       Eb                Bb                    F
But they sighed Johnny it falls apart so easy and you know hearts these days are cheap 
        Eb                                              Bb
And the pimps swung their axes and said Johnny you're a cheater 
         Eb                                              Bb
Well the pimps swung their axes and said Johnny you're a liar 
         Eb                                                             Bb
And from out of the shadows came a young girl's voice said Johnny don't cry 


Eb     Eb/D  Cm   Eb/D 
Puerto Rican Jane 
Eb Eb/D      Cm      Eb/D        Bb    (Octaves: Eb  D  C  Bb) 
oh won't you tell me what's your name 
          Eb        Eb/D        Cm            Eb/D
I want to drive you down to the other side of town 
      Eb                Eb/D    
Where paradise ain't so crowded there'll be 
Cm           Eb/D           Bb
action goin' down on Shanty Lane tonight 
         F                          Eb
All them golden-heeled fairies in a real bitch fight 
                       Bb                  F
Pull thirty eights and kiss the girls good night 


CHORUS 1:
   Bb               Eb      F
Oh good night, it's alright Jane 
             Bb         Eb              F
Now let them black boys in to light the soul flame 
       Bb                 Eb             F
We may find it out on the street tonight baby 
   Bb            Eb               F
Or we may walk until the daylight maybe 


            Bb            Eb                     F
Well like a cool Romeo he made his moves, oh she looked so fine 
       Bb                        Eb                     Bb                     F
Like a late Juliet she knew he'd never be true but then she didn't really mind 
           Bb                   Eb                                 F
Upstairs a band was playin' the singer was singin' something about goin' home 
                      Bb                         Eb                   Bb             F
She whispered Spanish Johnny, you can leave me tonight but just don't leave me alone


                 Eb     Eb/D  Cm  Eb/D
And Johnny cried Puerto Rican Jane
Eb      Eb/D     Cm        Eb/D      Bb    (Octaves: Eb  D  C  Bb) 
Word is down the cops have found the vein
        Eb       Eb/D            Cm            Eb/D
Oh them barefoot boys left their homes for the woods 
            Eb              Eb/D          Cm             Eb/D
Them little barefoot street boys they say homes ain't no good 
              Bb     F                     Eb
They left the corners threw away all their switchblade knives
    Bb                    F
And kissed each other goodbye 


           Bb                         Eb                                 F
Johnny was sittin' on the fire escape watchin' the kids playin' down the street 
               Bb                          Eb
He called down Hey little heroes, summer's long 
                                       F
But I guess it ain't very sweet around here anymore 
      Bb                         Eb
Janey sleeps in sheets damp with sweat
                         F
Johnny sits up alone and watches her dream on, dream on 
        Bb                    
And the sister prays for lost souls
     Eb                        F
Then breaks down in the chapel after everyone's gone 
Bb                   
Jane moves over to share her pillow 
    Eb                                  F
But opens her eyes to see Johnny up and putting his clothes on 
                 Eb
She says those romantic young boys 
         Bb
All they ever want to do is fight 
        Eb
Those romantic young boys they're callin' through the window 
                                Bb                         F
Hey Spanish Johnny, you want to make a little easy money tonight?

And Johnny whispered


CHORUS 2:
Bb               Eb        F
Good night, it's all tight Jane 
     Bb                Eb               F
I'll meet you tomorrow night on Lover's Lane 
       Bb                 Eb             F
We may find it out on the street tonight baby 
   Bb            Eb               F
Or we may walk until the daylight maybe 


CHORUS 3:
   Bb               Eb        F
Oh Good night, it's all right Jane 
          Bb                Eb               F
I'm gonna meet you tomorrow night on Lover's Lane 
          Bb                 Eb             F
Oh we can find it out on the street tonight baby 
   Bb            Eb               F
Or we may walk until the daylight maybe 


CHORUS 4:
   Bb               Eb        F
Ah Good night, it's all right Jane 
     Bb                Eb               F
I'll meet you tomorrow night on Lover's Lane 
           Bb                      Eb             F
Now we may find it out on...on the street tonight baby 
          Bb                     Eb            F
Or we may have to walk until the morning light ahhh

Great job, sounds just about right. It's easier though to do it with a capo on 2, that's how Bruce did in in Pittsburgh last night, the first time he's ever done it solo guitar.
