"Jackie Blue (Ozark Mountain Daredevils cover)" as written by Larry M. Lee and Steve Cash....
Ooh-hoo, Jackie Blue
Lives a life from inside of her room
Hides a smile when she's wearing a frown
Ooh, Jackie, your not so down

You like your life in a free form style
You'll take an inch but you'd love a mile
There never seems to be quite enough
Loving around us when your loving comes

Ooh-hoo, Jackie Blue
What's a game, ooh, that you never lose
Ask a winner and you'll probably find
Ooh, Jackie they lost you some time

Don't try tell me that you're not aware
Of what you're doing and that you don't care
You say that it's easy, just a natural thing
Like playing music that you've never seen

Ooh-hoo, Jackie Blue
Making wishes that never come true
Going places where you've never been
Ooh, Jackie, you've blown it again

Ooh-hoo, Jackie Blue
Lives a life from inside her room
Makes you think that life is a drag
Ooh, Jackie, what fun you have had

    General CommentThe Ozark Mountain Daredevils played this song originally, and the pumpkins made a kick ass version of it. The guitar solos are fantastic on this one.

    General CommentOne of the only Smashing Pumpkins' songs I don't have...trying to find it on the Internet. If I can't then I'll just get the collection that has it.

    General Commentthis song is great...its about a girl who's bummed about something (probably a guy), and is acting like it's the end of the world..she's forgetting all the good things in her life.. and all the good things that have happened even with that guy..she got what she wanted.. a loose bond, but is still dissatified.. but shouldnt be because she has gotten what she wants many times. plus it was fun while it lasted...furthermore, this song was written about me..my names jackie

    My InterpretationGreat tune!

    I have always thought it was about a malcontent that is never satisfied with her life/situation, but is unwilling or unable to change it. Seems like she is waiting for someone to change it for her.
