[Verse 1] -- Riff (x4)
      E         D                   E         D 
I was born in a cross-fire hurricane.
      E            D                 E         D
And I howled at my Ma in the driving rain.


[CHORUS 1] -- Chords
         G   D     A                   E  
But it's all right now, in fact it's a gas.
         G   D          A                         E              
But it's all right, I'm Jumpin' Jack Flash it's a gas, gas, gas.

[Verse 2] -- Riff (x4)
      E           D                  E         D
I was raised by a toothless, bearded hag.
      E               D                     E         D
I was schooled with a strap right across my back.


[Chorus 2]
         G   D     A                   E  
But it's all right now, in fact it's a gas.
         G   D          A                         E              
But it's all right, I'm Jumpin' Jack Flash it's a gas, gas, gas.

[Verse 3] -- Riff (x4)
      E              D                      E         D
I was drowned, I was washed up and left for dead.
       E          D                   E         D
I fell down to my feet and I saw they bled.
  E              D                    E         D
I frowned at the crumbs of a crust of bread.    Yeah, yeah, yeah.
      E              D                      E         D
I was crowned with a spike right through my head.


[Chorus 3]
         G   D     A                   E
But it's all right now, in fact it's a gas.
         G   D          A                         E              /
But it's all right, I'm Jumpin' Jack Flash it's a gas, gas, gas.


[Outro]  Repeat and fade    
E                   A      D
Jumping Jack Flash, it's a gas.
