Sister Jane - New World - transcript by Martyn J Cox


This is how I see it, I would appreciate some feedback because I have only been playing for 10 weeks and 
some of the chords might be out, if you know better chords then please amend this and tell me to help me 
my learning, it really is an excellent song.

I have always liked this one:

First Verse :

 CCome (x32010@1)in sit down, pull up a chair

 FSpeak (133211@1)the truth when you tell me your cares

 GDon't (320003@1)be afraid to talk to your brother

       C (x32010@1)         F (133211@1)     G (320003@1)         CGet (x32010@1)a hold of yourself and dry up your tears

      CWe'll (x32010@1)start at the start and end at the end

       FYou'll (133211@1)find that your mind might possibly mend

     GWell (320003@1)sure I can help you 'cos you can't help yourself

         C (x32010@1)       F (133211@1)  G (320003@1)                C (x32010@1)       F (133211@1)  GHave (320003@1)you fallen in love again ? , have you fallen in love again ?

Full Chorus:

C (D)
Sister Jane you gonna change your name

          F(G) (133211@1)You gotta get out soon  before you go insane

           G(A) (320003@1)Before the town starts talkin' , when they see you out walkin'

   C(D) (x32010@1)           G(A) (320003@1)        C(D)             G(A)
It sure does seem a shame, yes it sure does seem a shame

C (D)
Sister Jane you gonna change your name

         F(G) (133211@1)And I suggest you catch the 12:45 plane

           G(D)                                        C(D) (x32010@1)           FBefore (133211@1)the family finds out just what you've done, and holds you at the point
          G(A) (320003@1)of a gun

    C (x32010@1)(D)           F (133211@1)     G(A) (320003@1)      C(D) (x32010@1)And that ain't gonna be much fun, Sister Jane

Second Verse :

CWe'll (x32010@1)talk of the future, we'll talk of the past

    FThe (133211@1)odds were against you, it never could last

    GYou (320003@1)can't think opinions that change overnight

         C (x32010@1)           F (133211@1)             GWhen (320003@1)you know what you done just ain't right

    CYou (x32010@1)don't mean to tell me you finally done it

    FYou (133211@1)played at the game and you thought you had won it

    GAnd (320003@1)now that you find that you're way out of line

     C (x32010@1)         F (133211@1)       G (320003@1)              C (x32010@1)         F (133211@1)          GWell (320003@1)some people call it a crime, yeah, you really have done it this time

   C (x32010@1)              G (320003@1)           C (x32010@1)              G (320003@1)           CIt (x32010@1)sure does seem a shame, yes it sure does seem a shame, Sister Jane

Third Verse :

    DYou (xx0232@1)told me the truth, you opened your mind

  GI (320003@1)said I would listen and help you unwind

   AMy (x02220@1)dear Sister Jane you've caused nothing but pain

      D (xx0232@1)         G (320003@1)           AAnd (x02220@1)I really must tell you this time

  DI (xx0232@1)knew all along you had to go wrong

   GIn (320003@1)this kind of town you could never belong

    AI'm (x02220@1)sorry for you and I'm sorry for me

 D (xx0232@1)        G (320003@1)           AThis (x02220@1)is the way it should end

            D (xx0232@1)       G (320003@1)  A (x02220@1)    A'Cos (x02220@1)you've fallen in love again, we-ell.

Full Chorus :

(Use chords in brackets for the final chorus, down to 'point of a gun then repeat chorus and fade, and in 
line "it sure does seem a shame" only sing this once in the final chorus and not twice as in the other  
of the chorus)

A classic piece that was a winner for the group New World back in 1972 on the British TV Show 'Opportunity Knocks'
