Did you know?

Richards sad that he and Jagger wrote the lyrics while staying at Richards' country house,
where they were awoken one morning by the sound of gardener Jack Dyer walking past the window.
When Jagger asked what the noise was, Richards responded: "Oh, that's Jack – that's jumpin' Jack."
The rest of the song evolved from there...

I was born in a cross-fire hurricane

      B                                  
I was raised by a toothless, bearded hag,

I was schooled with a strap right across my back,
         D     A       E                    B

       B                                         
I was drowned, I was washed up and left for dead.
       B                                   
I fell down to my feet and I saw they bled.
   B                                        
I frowned at the crumbs of a crust of bread.
B               
Yeah, yeah, yeah
       B                                      
I was crowned with a spike right thru my head.
