Verse 1:

             C                               Em
He tells her, I want to paint you naked on a big brass bed
Am7                             F
with bright orange poppies all around your head.
              C         F            C        F
And she says, Crazy old man, I'm not young anymore.
Dm7                                       G7sus4    G7
That's all right, he whispers, I've never painted before.


C                   F          C
Do you love me Lady Jane, Lady Jane?
       C            F          Gsus4  G
Do you love me Lady Jane, Lady Jane?
           C              Em               Am7            F
You got me talkin' to the moon, you got me walkin' in the rain.
       C               F            C     (Gsus4 G)
Do you love me, do you love me Lady Jane?

Verse 2:

C                                 Em
I want to read your tea leaves by candle light.
     Am7                        F
On a fat velvet sofa, I want to be with you all night.
          C           F           F       C
I want to tickle your feet with a peacock plume.
And she says, Can you talk a little softer,
          G7sus4        G7
there are people in the room.



And Jane says, my children brought me here
and promised me they'd call.
     Dm7                                  G7sus4         G7
Well you know kids forget that's just the way of it all.
            C                    Em                 Am7   F
And he says, Well, that makes us both footloose and fancy free,
   Dm7                                      Dm7/G
so Jane do you want to come see the Painted Desert with me?



       F              C
Do you love me like I love you?
       F            C
Do you love me Lady Jane?
