Hey Jack Kerouac

Song Author 10,000 Maniacs Submitted by: Anonymous
[E]Hey Jack Kerouac I think of your [Esus4]mother      
And the [G#m7]tears she cried She cried for none [Asus2]other      
[E]Than her little boy lost in our little world[Esus4] that hated
And that [G#m7]dared to drag him down
Her little boy co[Asus2]urageous

W[A]ho chose his words from mouths of
[B]Babes got lost in the woods
[A]Hipflask slingin madmen
[B]Steamin cafe flirts
[A]They all spoke through you

[E]Hey Jack now for the tricky [Esus4]part      
When you[G#m7] where the brightest star W[Asus2]ho were the shadow
[E]Of the San Francisco beat boys You[Esus4] were their favorite
Now the[G#m7]y sit and rattle their bones
And think of[Asus2] their bloodstone days

W[A]ho chose his words from mouths of
[B]Babes got lost in the woods
[A]Hipflask slingin madmen
[B]Steamin cafe flirts
[A]They all spoke through you

[B]    [E]    [B]    [E]    [B]    [E]    
[Asus2]    
[E]Allen baby, why so jaded [Esus4]    
Have t[G#m7]he boys all grown up And their[Asus2] music faded
[E]Billy, what a saint they've made y[Esus4]ou      
Just like[G#m7] Mary down in Mexico
On all so[Asus2]uls day      

[A]You chose your words from mouths of
[B]Babes lost in the woods
[A]Cool junk booting madmen
[B]Steet minded girls
[A]In Harlem howling at night

[B]    [E]    [B]    [E]    [B]    [E]    
[Asus2]    
[Asus2]What a tear stained
shock of the wor[E]ld  
You've gone [D6]away without sayin
[Asus2]Saying good[F]bye  


Hey Jack Kerouac I think of your mother
And the tears she cried She cried for none other
Than her little boy lost in our little world that hated
And that dared to drag him down
Her little boy courageous

Who chose his words from mouths of
Babes got lost in the woods
Hipflask slingin madmen
Steamin cafe flirts
They all spoke through you

Hey Jack now for the tricky part
When you where the brightest star Who were the shadow
Of the San Francisco beat boys You were their favorite
Now they sit and rattle their bones
And think of their bloodstone days

Who chose his words from mouths of
Babes got lost in the woods
Hipflask slingin madmen
Steamin cafe flirts
They all spoke through you



Allen baby, why so jaded
Have the boys all grown up And their music faded
Billy, what a saint they've made you
Just like Mary down in Mexico
On all souls day

You chose your words from mouths of
Babes lost in the woods
Cool junk booting madmen
Steet minded girls
In Harlem howling at night



What a tear stained
shock of the world
You've gone away without sayin
Saying goodbye
