The Joker  Steve Miller Band

This one is REALLY easy. Just play:G - C - D - C
throughout the whole song... except where noted

Some people call me the space cowboy
Some call me the gangster of love
Some people call me Maurice
'Cause I speak with the prophecies of love

People talk about me baby
Say I'm doing you wrong, doing you wrong
Don't you worry baby don't worry
'Cause I'm right here, right here, right here, right here at home

[G]'Cause I'm a pitcher, I'm a [C]grinner
I'm a [G]lover and I'm a [C]sinner
[G]I play my [C]music in the [D]sun  [C]
[G]I'm a joker, I'm a [C]smoker
I'm a [G]midnight [C]talker
[G]I get my [C]loving on the [D]run   [C]

Your the cutest thing that I ever did see
Really like your peaches wanna shake your tree
Lovy dovy, lovy dovy, lovy dovy all the time
O wee baby I wanna show you a good time

[G]'Cause I'm a pitcher, I'm a [C]grinner
I'm a [G]lover and I'm a [C]sinner
[G]I play my [C]music in the [D]sun  [C]
[G]I'm a joker, I'm a [C]smoker
I'm a [G]midnight [C]talker
[G]I get my [C]loving on the [D]run   [C]

Thanks for the tab, great beginner song. You can change the D chords to D7 and it works fine too, with less finger movement---even easier.

Pompitous is a real word in the Urban dictionary http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=pompitous

how do you make that katjoung (very proffesional discription of bass sound :D)
just hitting the E or do you do something different i can't get it right

lugar (report)

The Joker is played in D, not standard

lippy (report)

Great song . I,ve been playing it forever it seems .
After G C D C
I get my loving on the run

I don,t think the change from D to C is made . I hold the D and the original has some Oooh oooh ooh ooh , before returning to the start of the next verse .

Pompitous was explained as a puppet . An ethereal character drifting about looking for love .

Just my 2 cents worth . Hope it helps

Lievendv (report)

pompetous IS idd correct, it's a word he made up in his previous album!

painehd (report)

The word you are looking for is palpetice. From the word palpable.

If something is palpable it is evident or obvious and strong.

Great song!

Did anyone hear the Happyfeet The Joker/Everything I own mash-up?

DD DU/switch end of line is 1/8th notes

James McCormick (report)

Also: "Because I speak of the pompetous of love'" is the correct lyric. 'Pompetous' is not a real word, but that is how the song goes . . .
