Lyrics and Chords Guitar Chris Cornell – Billie Jean (Acoustic)

Intro:
Em (Top 4 strings picked slowly down then up) x 4

Verse 1:
Em
She was more like a beauty queen from a movie scene
Am
I said don't mind, but what do you mean I am the one
Em
Who will dance on the floor in the round
Am Em
She said I am the one, who will dance on the floor in the round

She told me her name was Billie Jean, as she caused a scene
Am
Then every head turned with eyes that dreamed of being the one
Em
Who will dance on the floor in the round


Bridge:
C Em
People always told me be careful of what you do
C Em
Don't go around breaking young girls' hearts
C Em
And mother always told me be careful of who you love
C B7
And be careful of what you do before the lie becomes the truth

Chorus:
Em Am Em Gadd9/E Em
Billie Jean is not my lover
Am Em Am Bmadd11/A
She's just a girl who says that I am the one
Gadd11/A Bm7/A Em
But the kid is not my son
Am
She says I am the one
Gadd11/A Bm7/A Em
But the kid is not my son

Verse 2:
Em
For forty days and for forty nights. The law was on her side.
Am
But who can stand when she's in demand. Her schemes and plans.
Em
'Cause we danced on the floor in the round
Am Em
So take my strong advice, remember to always think twice
(Do think twice)

Verse 3:
Em
She told my baby we'd danced till three, then she looked at me
Am
Then showed a photo my baby cried his eyes were like mine
Em
'Cause we danced on the floor in the round

Bridge:
C Em
People always told me be careful of what you do
C Em
Don't go around breaking young girls' hearts
C Em
Then she stood right by me. The smell of sweet perfume.
C B7
This happened much too soon. She called me to her room.

Chorus:
Em Am Em Gadd9/E Em
Billie Jean is not my lover
Am Em Am Bmadd11/A
She's just a girl who says that I am the one
Gadd11/A Bm7/A Em
But the kid is not my son
Am
She says I am the one
Gadd11/A Bm7/A Em
But the kid is not my son
Am Em
So take my strong advice, remember to always think twice
(Do think twice)
