                Lily, Rosemary, and the Jack of Hearts     4/4     Joan Baez     Bob Dylan

       / A                             
The / festival was over, and
      / D                                     / A                
The / boys were all plannin' for a / fall.
      / A                
The / cabaret was quiet,
       / D                                 / A 
Ex - / cept for the drillin' in the / wall.
      / D         -             A
The / curfew had been lifted and 
      / E           -                A
The / gamblin' wheel shut down,
D         -        A
Anyone with any sense,
       / Bm      -        E
Had / a -  ready left town.
            / A                    
He was / standin' in the doorway 
D          -          E                  / A     / /
Lookin' like the Jack of Hear - / arts. / /

He / moved across the mirrored room, 
"Set em up for everyone," he / said,
Then / everyone commenced to do,
What / they'd been doin',
Be - fore he moved their / heads.
Then he / walked up to a stranger, and 
He / asked him with a grin,
"Could you / kindly tell me, mister, 
What / time the show be - gins?"
He / moved into the corner, 
Face down like the Jack of Hear - / arts

Back - stage the girls were playin' 
Five-card stud by the / stairs,
Lily had two queens, 
She was / hopin' for a third, 
To match her / pair.
Out - / side the streets were fillin' up, and
A / window was open wide,
A / gentle breeze was blowin', 
You could / feel it from in - side.
Lily called a - nother bet, and 
Drew up the Jack of Hear - / arts.

Big Jim was no one's fool, 
He owned the town's only diamond / mine,
He / made his usual entrance,
Lookin' all so dandy and so / fine.
With his / bodyguards and silver cane, and 
Every hair in place,
He / took whatever he wanted to, and 
He / laid it all to waste,.
But his / bodyguards and his silver cane, 
They were / no match for the Jack of Hear - / arts

Rose - / mary co - ombed her hair, and 
Took the carriage into / town,
She / slipped into the side door,
Lookin' like a queen without a / crown.
She / fluttered her false eyelashes and 
Whispered in his ear,
"I'm / sorry, darlin', that I'm late," 
But he / didn't seem to hear.
He was / starin' into space, 
Over at the Jack of Hear - / arts.

"Well I / know I've seen that face somewhere," 
Big Jim was thinkin' to him - / self,
"Maybe down in Mexico or 
A / picture up - on some - body's / shelf."
But then the / crowd began to stamp their feet, and 
The / house lights did dim, and
In the darkness of the room, 
There was / only Jim and him,
Starin' at the butterfly, 
Who / just up drew up the Jack of Hear - / arts

Lily was a princess, 
She was / fair-skinned and precious as a / child,
She / had that certain something
Was a kind of a flash,, 
Every time she / smiled.
She'd / come away from a broken home, 
Had / lots of strange af - fairs,
With / men in every walk of life, 
Who / took her every - where.
But she'd / never met any - one 
Quite like the Jack of Hear - / arts.

The / hangin' judge came in un - / noticed, and 
Was being wined and / dined,
The / drillin' in the wall kept up, 
But / no one seemed to pay it any / mind.
It was / known all a - round, 
That / Lily had Jim's ring, and
Nothing would ever come, 
Between / Lily and the king.
No, / nothin' ever could, 
Ex - / cept maybe the Jack of Hear - / arts.

Rosemary started drinkin' hard and 
Seein' her re - flection in the / knife,
She was / tired of the at - tention, 
Tired of playin' the role of Big Jim's / wife.
She had / done a lot of bad things, 
Even / once tried sui - cide,
Was / lookin' to do just one good  / deed 
Before she died.
She was / gazin' to the future, 
Riding on the Jack of Hear - / arts

Lily took her dress off,  
Buried it a - / way.
"Has your / luck run out?" she laughed at him, 
"I / guess you must have known it would some - / day.
Be / careful not to touch the wall, 
There's a / brand-new coat of paint,
I'm / glad to see you're still alive, and
You're / lookin' like a saint."
Down the hallway footsteps 
Were / comin' for the Jack of Hear - / arts

The / Backstage manager was / pacin', 
All a - round by his / chair.
"There's / somethin' funny going on,
" I / know, I can just feel it in the / air."
He / went to get the hangin' judge, 
But the / hangin' judge was drunk, and
The / leading actor hurried by 
In the / costume of a monk.
But there was no / actor any - where, 
Better than the Jack of Hear - / arts.

Lili had her arms a - round the / man
She dearly loved to / touch,
She for - / got all a - bout the man, 
She / hated who hounded her so / much, 
I / missed you so she said to him, and
He / thought she was sincere
But / in the hallway he fou - ound
Jealousy and fear 
Just another night in the / life of the Jack of Hear - / arts

No one knew the circumstance 
But / they say that it happened pretty / quick,
The / door to the dressing room burst / open and 
A cold revolver / clicked, and
Big Jim was standin' there, 
You / couldn't say sur - prised,
Rose - / mary right be - side him, 
Steady in her eyes.
She was / with Big Jim, 
But she was / leanin' to the Jack of Hear - / arts

Two doors down and the / boys, 
Finally made it through the / wall, and
They / cleaned out the bank safe, 
Said they got off with quite a / haul, and
In the / darkness of the riverbed, 
They / waited on the ground,
For / one more member, 
Who had / business back in town.
But they / couldn't go no further, 
With - out the Jack of Hear - / arts.

Well the / next day was hangin' day, 
The / sky was overcast and / black,
Big Jim lay covered up, 
Killed by a penknife in the / back, and
Rose - / mary on the gallows, 
Lord she / didn't even blink,
The / hangin' judge was sober, 
Lord, he / hadn't had a drink and,
The / only person on the scene 
Missing was the Jack of Hear - / arts

Well the / cabaret was quiet now, and
A / sign said, "Closed for re - / pair,"
Lily had already taken / all of the dye 
Out of her / hair.
She was / thinkin' about her  father, 
Who she / very rarely saw,
Thinkin' about Rosemary, and 
Thinkin' about the law.
But, / most of a - all she was / thinkin' 
About the Jack of Hear - / arts.
