"Lady Jane" is a song by The Rolling Stones that featured on their 1966 album "Aftermath". It delivers an Elizabethan atmosphere with its lyrics and haunting instrumentation showcasing Brian Jones on dulcimer, and was rumored at one point to be about the wives of Henry VIII. It was written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards and is considered by many fans to be one of the highlights from the "Aftermath" album, and one of their best tunes. On the studio version, there are no drums. When played live, however (for example, on their 1966 live release "Got Live If You Want It!"), Charlie Watts would make use of the drum kit. While both the US and UK releases of the album had different tracks, this was featured as track three, side one of both albums.

The song was released as the B-side to "Mother's Little Helper" in America. It was one of the few singles released by the Rolling Stones in America where both songs made the Top 40 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts. "Mother's Little Helper" peaked at # 8 and "Lady Jane" peaked at # 24. The song was a part of their live act during their 1966 and 1967 tours. They also performed the song during their fourth TV appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show. It is one of many of the Rolling Stones' early (Brian Jones-era) hits that have not been played live since his death.

On Neil Young's 1975 album "Tonight's The Night" the tune from Lady Jane is "borrowed" for the song entitled "Borrowed Tune".
