Help! I have been asked to sing the song"Jean" by Rod Mckuen for a funeral coming up asap, and I can vaguely remember it from many years ago. Can anyone help me find a page or site where I can find the chords & lyrics, and possibly the melody notes? Just the chords & lyrics would help, but there will be an organist who needs the music which we can't find. Can anyone help me? Thanks, Kaleea

JEAN
(Rod McKuen)

Jean, Jean, Roses are red.
All the leaves have gone green.
And the clouds are so low,
You can touch them and so,
Come out to the meadow, Jean.

Jean, Jean, You're young and alive.
Come out of your half dreamed dream.
And run, if you will, to the top of the hill.
Open your arms, bonnie Jean.
Till the sheep in the valley come home my way.
Till the stars fall around me and find me alone.
When the sun comes a' singin, I'll still be waiting for...
Jean, Jean, Roses are red.
And all of the leaves have gone green.
While the hills are ablaze
With the moon's yellow haze,
Come into my arms, bonnie Jean.

Hi, Kaleea - I hope you're the person who is the registered Mudcatter named Kaleea, because I sent e-mail to that person with arrangements for transmitting sheet music for the song. If not, send me an e-mail and I'll see what I can do for you.

Thanks very much, Yes, it was me sending from my office computer. I recieved the music and it was truly a gift to the family of the lady who passed away. The only surviving immediate family-my assistant manager for several years- had no idea what to do, or how to do it, much less about what songs would be appropriate! The lady's name was "Jean" and I was told she loved Rod Mckuen & had all his records, so naturally, I immediately thought of that song. They were quite touched by hearing the song--hardly a dry eye in the house! Catters, you're the best! Kaleea

Come out of your half-dreamed dream
And run, if you will, to the top of the hill

Till the sheep in the valley come home I'll wait
Till the stars fall around me and find me alone
When the sun comes a-singin' I'll still be waitin'

And all of the leaves have gone green
And the hills are ablaze with the morn's yellow haze
Come into my arms, bonnie Jean

And the clouds are so low
You can touch them, and so
Come into my arms, bonnie Jean

JEAN was the theme song for the 1969 film "The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie." Rod McKuen sang it on the soundtrack. It won a Golden Globe award for "Best Original Song," and it was nominated for (but didn't win) an Oscar.
