     A              D                   A
When we first met I didn't know what to do
                           D           A
My old love lines were all worn out on you
        D            D/C#        Bm
And the world walked round at my mouth
     A                  E          A
They lit me up and they snuffed me out

Chorus
    A     E           A
And I was everybody's boy
    D         D/C#        Bm
But soon that thrill just fades
   D      E       A   E    F#m
To be the love of one true heart
       D       E   A
Or the Jack of all parades

[Do opening riff here]

          A
You won't know who to thank
          D           A
You won't know who to blame
                        D         A
It's just a part of the Murdering Game

Cos down in the fleshpots
           D          A
Where they pay you in pounds

They're laughing like drains
    D           A
And baying like bloodhounds
        D       D/C#  Bm
For the Jack of all parades
    D       E   A       A7
The Jack of all parades

D
Once I knew a girl
               Dm
That looked so much like Judy Garland
     A
That people would stop and give her money
D                            Dm
  And everybody was Frankie, Jimmy or Bobby
        A         E
Not the Jack, the Jack of all Parades,
       A         D           E
Oh the Jack, the Jack of all Parades,
       A    E         A
Oh the Jack, of all Parades.

[Intro riff again]

        A                  D         A
Now the way that I feel is no longer news
                     D      A
You know my love and how to refuse it

Cause you know where the door is
D          A
And how to use it
D      D/C#     Bm
Oh you know you do
         A
But from my chequered past
   D              A
To this shattered terrace

Where you can't keep your mind off
    D         A
the Crimes of Paris

And you can't keep your peace
    D      A
And try to forget it

And I can't forgive you
    D                  A
For things you haven't done yet

   A     E         A
Oh I was anybody's boy
    D         D/C#        Bm
But soon that thrill just fades
   D      E       A   E    F#m
To be the love of one true heart
       D       E   A
Or the Jack of all parades

     A              [tacet]
When we first met I didn't know what to do
   A                       [tacet]
My old love lines were all worn out on you
        D            D/C#      Bm
And the world walked 'round my mouth
  A
I didn't mean to say it
       E          A
I just blurted it out
       D                D/C#
As you pretended not to notice
      Bm
Or be taken aback
    E           A
And I loved you there and then
        E         A
It's as simple as that

   A     E           A
Oh I was everybody's boy
    D         D/C#        Bm
But soon that thrill just fades
   D      E       A   E    F#m
To be the love of one true heart
       D       E   A
Or the Jack of all parades
   A      E       A   E    F#m
To be the love of one true heart
       D       E   A
Or the Jack of all parades
       D       E   A
Oh the Jack of all parades
