Sister Jane - New World - transcript by Martyn J Cox 

(martyn.cox@cableinet.co.uk)

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

I have always liked this one:

First Verse :

 C
Come in sit down, pull up a chair

 F
Speak the truth when you tell me your cares

 G
Don't be afraid to talk to your brother

       C           F       G           C
Get a hold of yourself and dry up your tears

      C
We'll start at the start and end at the end

       F
You'll find that your mind might possibly mend

     G
Well sure I can help you 'cos you can't help yourself

         C         F    G                  C         F    G
Have you fallen in love again ? , have you fallen in love again ?


Full Chorus:

C (D)
Sister Jane you gonna change your name

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

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

   C (D)            G (A)         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)
And I suggest you catch the 12:45 plane

           G(D)                                        C (D)            F
Before the family finds out just what you've done, and holds you at the point 
          G (A)
of a gun

    C  (D)           F       G (A)       C (D)
And that ain't gonna be much fun, Sister Jane




Second Verse :

C
We'll talk of the future, we'll talk of the past

    F
The odds were against you, it never could last

    G
You can't think opinions that change overnight

         C             F               G     
When you know what you done just ain't right

    C
You don't mean to tell me you finally done it

    F
You played at the game and you thought you had won it

    G
And now that you find that you're way out of line

     C           F         G                C           F            G
Well some people call it a crime, yeah, you really have done it this time


Half Chorus Only :

C
Sister Jane you gonna change your name

          F
You gotta get out soon  before you go insane

           G
Before the town starts talkin' , when they see you out walkin'

   C                G             C                G             C
It sure does seem a shame, yes it sure does seem a shame, Sister Jane


Third Verse :

    D 
You told me the truth, you opened your mind

  G
I said I would listen and help you unwind

   A
My dear Sister Jane you've caused nothing but pain

      D           G             A
And I really must tell you this time


  D 
I knew all along you had to go wrong

   G
In this kind of town you could never belong

    A
I'm sorry for you and I'm sorry for me

 D          G             A
This is the way it should end

            D         G    A      A
'Cos 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 the line "it sure does seem a shame" only sing this once in the final chorus and not twice as in the other  instances 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'
