	"Sweet Jane"
	(full-length version: from album _Fully Loaded Edition_,
	box set _Peel Slowly And See_)


	Standing on the corner
	suitcase in my hand
	Jack is in his corset, Jane is her vest
	and me, I'm in a rock'n'roll band, ha
	Ridin'a Stutz Bearcat, Jim
	you know, those were different times
	Oh, all the poets, they studied rules of verse
	and those ladies, they rolled their eyes

	Sweet Jane, oh
	Sweet Jane, oh, oh
	Sweet Jane

	I'll tell you something, that Jack, he is a banker
	and Jane, she is a clerk
	And both of them save their monies
	ha, and when they come home from work
	Ooohhh, sittin' down by the fire
	oh, the radio does play
	The classical music, said Jim, the "March of the Wooden Soldiers"
	all you protest kids, you can hear Jack say, get ready, ah

	Sweet Jane, come on, baby
	Sweet Jane, oh, oh, oh
	Sweet Jane

	Some people, they like to go out dancing
	and other peoples, they have to work, just watch me now
	And there's even some evil mothers
	well they're gonna tell you that everything is just dirt
	You know, that women never really faint
	and that villains always blink their eyes, ooohhh
	And that, you know, children are the only ones who blush
	and that life is just to die

	But anyone who ever had a heart
	oh, they wouldn't turn around and break it
	And anyone who's ever played a part
	oh, they wouldn't turn around and hate it

	Sweet Jane, oh, wow, oh
	Sweet Jane
	Sweet Jane

	Heavenly wine and roses
	seem to whisper to her, when he smile
	Heavenly wine and roses
	seem to whisper to her, hey, baby, when he smile
