Sweet Jane

Lou Reed
As recorded by Cowboy Junkies


[D] [A] [G] [A]
Anyone who's ever had a heart
Wouldn't turn around and break it
Anyone who's ever played a part
Wouldn't turn around and hate it

Sweet Jane, Sweet Jane
Ah, sweet sweet Jane

We waited for Jimmy down in the alley
Waiting there for him to come back home
Waited down on the corner
Thinking of ways to get back home

Sweet Jane, Sweet Jane
Ah, sweet sweet Jane

Anyone who's ever had a dream
Anyone who's ever played a part
Anyone's who's ever been lonely
Anyone who's ever split apart

Sweet Jane, Sweet Jane
Ah, sweet sweet Jane [D] (5 bars)

[D] Heavenly [Db] wine and roses [G] Seem to whisper [A] to me
When you smile

[D] Heavenly [Db] wine and roses [G] Seem to whisper [A] to me
When you smile

[D] La la [A] la laaaa [G] la la [A] la.
[D] La la [A] laaaa [G] la la [A] la
[D] Na na [A] naah [G] na na na [A] na
[D] Na na [A] naaa [G] na na [A] na


Sweet Jane
Sweet sweet Jane

Tabbed by Josh Ronsen: I play this clean-tone on my electric, with lots of reverb. All the chords are barre, A and D are at the 5th fret, G is on the 3rd fret, Db is at the 4th
bbkim's note: This is in 2/4 time. Each chord receives 2 beats per measure. The whole song, except what's in italics, is played in a 4 chord progression: [D] [A] [G] [A] which is repeated over and over.
