"Sweet Jane"
Lou Reed
(this transcription based off of the Cowboy Junkies' cover)

verse 1:
(play progression with beat dum dum dum-dum)
D            A          G G         G          A         D D
Anyone who's ever had a heart

D            A             G G         G          A         D D
Wouldn't turn around and break it

D            A             G G         G          A         D D
Anyone who's ever played a part

D            A          G G         G          A         D D
Wouldn't turn around and break it

D            A          G G         G          A         D D
Sweet        Jane

D            A          G G         G          A         D D
Sweet        Jane

D            A          G G         G          A         D D
Ah,          sweet sweet Jane

verse 2 & 3 are the identical musically, but with the following words:

verse 2:
Waited for Jimmy down in the alley
Waited for him to come back home
Waited down on the corner
Thinking of ways to get back home
Sweet Jane...etc

verse 3:
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...etc

interlude:
D |  DD  |   DD  |  DDDDDDDD |
     ^       ^      ^ ^ ^ ^
    (Strum up and down)

(let chords ring)
D        C#              G                  A      A
Heavenly blue-eyed roses Seem to whisper to me...  When you smile
D        C#              G                  A      A
Heavenly blue-eyed roses Seem to whisper to me...  When you smile...
D           A            C           G
La la la la la la la...  La la la la la la la
D           A            C           G
La la la la la la la...  La la la la la la la

(with dum dum dum-dum beat)
D     A       G G      G         A      D D
D     A       G G      G         A      D D


I play this clean-tone on my electric, with lots of reverb.  All the chords
are barre chords.

I couldn't figure out a nice way of writing the rhythm, so I didn't.  The
verson above is one worked out by me and my vocalist, and i am not too
familiar with either the CJ or the VU versions, but this is what we do. I
humbly offer it for the acoustic guitar mailing list.
