I've grabbed a lot of stuff from here without posting anything, so I thought
I'd post something that's on the most.wanted list at ftp.nevada...

Here are the chords to Jackie Brown by John Mellancamp. Also, there is one 
recognizable little riff that appears throughout the song, which goes like

e ---------------------------------------------
B ---------------------------------------------
G --------0-----------------------0------------
D ----0-2---2-0---0-2---------0-2---2-0---0----
A --3-----------3-----------3-----------3---3--
E ---------------------------------------------

C/G is C with G bass added: 3-3-2-0-1-0

(Also, I believe this is capo'd on the 4th fret)

JACKIE BROWN - John Mellencamp

Is this your life, Jackie Brown?

Poorly educated and forced to live on the 
poor side of town
Is this your daughter, Jackie Brown?

This pretty little girl in worn out clothes that have 
been hand-me-down
Is this your wife, Jackie Brown? 

Sad blue eyes, walking on eggshells, so you 
don't see her frown
F            G             C/G
Is this your family Jackie Brown?

F                         C/G
Dream of vacationing in a mountain stream
Am                                     G
and giving the world more than it gave you
F                    C/G
What ugly truths freedom brings
Am                              G
and it hasn't been very kind to you
F            G            C/G
Is this your family, Jackie Brown?

Is this your meal, Jackie Brown?

Barely enough, I've seen people throw more 
than this out
Is this your home, Jackie Brown?

This three room shack, with no running water 
and the bathroom out back
Is this your grave, Jackie Brown?

This little piece of limestone that says another desperate man
took himself out
F            G             C/G
Is this your dream, Jackie Brown?

F                  C/G
Going nowhere, and nowhere fast
Am                                           G
We shame ourselves to watch people like this live
F                          C/G
But who gives a damn about Jackie Brown
Am                              G
Just another lazy man who could take what was his
F             G            C/G
One hell of a life, Jackie Brown
F       G            C/G      
Forever more, Jackie Brown
F      G            C/G
Well amen-n-amen, Jackie Brown
