Intro

[acapella:] This is the house that Jack built, y'all

A

Remember this house

Verse 1

A This was the land that he worked by hand C It was the dream of an upright man A There was the room that was filled with love C It was a love that I was proud of E7 This is the life, the life that he planned C7 On the love, the same old love A In the house that Jack built (the house that Jack built) Remember this house

Verse 2

There was a fence that held our love (yes, it was) There was the gate that he walked out of This is the heart, it has turned to stone (yes, it is) This is a house, it ain't no home This was a love that I destroyed On the day that I toyed with love In the house that Jack built I'm gonna remember this house

Bridge

F Oh, what is tAhe use of crying F You know I brought it on mAyself, there's no denying F But itA seems awful funny B7 That I didn't understand E7 Until I lost my upright man

Verse 3

A Up on the hill everything stCands still A In the house that Jack built (the house that Jack built) C I'm gonna remember this house (the house that Jack built) A Listen - I got the house, I got the car C I got the rugs and I got the rent A But I ain't got Jack And I want my Jack back Horn break:

F A B7 E7

Coda

A I turned my back on Jack, he said he wasn'Ct comin' back A I turned my back on Jack, he said he wasn't comin' back

A

C [continue] Oh, Jack, you oughta come on back Oh, Jack you oughta come on back (come on back, Jack) To the one that you built - it's the same one you built You oughta come on back, Jack oh, now Jack I didn't understand 'til I lost my upright man Come on back, Jack you oughta come on home now [fade]
