Jack And Jill
The "G (Riff)" is a sorta country sounding chugging kinda thing throughout the verses and the end of the lines of the chorus. Youtube the song to get a feel for the rhythm. Capo the 1st fret! Have fun with it! G (Riff) A|-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-- E|-0-0-3-0-0-3-0-0-3-0-0-- G (Riff) Jack was into Jill, Jill was in the cabinet Mama wasn't home, Daddy wasn't havin' it Spent his last nickels on an old brown bottle Mama took the Dodge, Hit that throttle D Jack was in the driveway, Lovestruck and reticent A Jill jumps in, Pockets fulla medicine babe G (Riff) Up so high, Halfway to Wonderland Jack don't mind, Never had a better plan Goin' down to Vegas for a shotgun service Don't need Jesus, Don't need churches D Jill has got the roadmap, Bustin' out another line A Hit that gas, Red light colorblind D A G (Riff) Jack says "Honey that all the lies of love and life ain't fair D A G (Riff) All we got is borrowed time but ain't got none to spare D A G (Riff) If the devil takes my hand too young and leaves you here to stay B7 I'll still love you From the bottom of my grave" G (Riff) Knot gets tied, Bank gets the riches Well runs dry, Straight down the ditches Jill is in the back room finishin' a lap dance Says it's just a paycheck, Hold it fella no hands Jack is in the card room bettin' all the rent again Just one time, No spades no sevens babe Checks don't cover, Jack owes the bookie now Blow this city, Don't stop to look around Jill was knocked up but it just didn't keep Couldn't even make it to the twenty first week Chase that sun, All the way to Mexico Kickin' that junk, Stickin' with the methadone Jack says "Honey that all the lies of love and life ain't fair All we got is borrowed time but ain't got none to spare If the devil takes my hand too young and leaves you hear to stay I'll still love you From the bottom of my grave" Six months later, Tijuana sunset Jack is now a dope mule, Jill is havin' cold sweats Take a little taste but it shuts 'em right up No one ever told 'em that the shit was uncut One last time, Fade into the faraway Take my hand honey, Don't gotta be afraid Jack is next to Jill, Jill's under a fake name Six feet down, Blessin' from the padre Nobody wept, nobody prayed Ain't nobody sang no Amazing Grace Jack and Jill they went up that hill But they never came down, They're up there still Jack says "Honey that all the lies of love and life ain't fair All we got is borrowed time but ain't got none to spare If the devil takes your hand too young you know that I won't stay And I'll love you From the bottom of my grave"
