Indigo Girls


[The net result of all the instruments is G Em7 C(9) D, which you can
play as 320033 022033 x32033 x00232, but actually, Amy just plays
G Em C D, or 320003 022000 x32010 x00232. In other words, Amy never
plays the D variations; that's Emily's part, way up high on the neck.]

G  Em7  C(9)  D     G  Em7  C(9)  Dsus-D-D(9)-D


You said the world was magic, I was wide-eyed and laughing
   We were dancing up to the bright side
Forget about your ego, forget about your pride
   And you will never have to compromise 
                   G     Em7             C(9)          Dsus-D-D(9)-D

And you were only joking, you were only joking, brother
We talked about our mothers, kissed the wounds of our fathers
I could've been your sister, I would've been your brother
You kissed me like I was a soldier headed for war
I'm a dying man, but I don't know what for  
And you were only joking, you were only joking, brother 
You were only joking,                     you were only joking,       brother 
(Wide-eyed and laughing) (Dancing...)
  itar solo]          
Gravel and glass on the bottom of my feet
I bruised my heels on the swollen street
We were girls in bars, boys on the town
Bumping like a pinball off a careless crowd
You said good friends are hard to come by
I laughed and bought you a beer, it's too corny to cry
Well, sentiment given or sentiment lost
You shake it off with a smirk and a toss  
And you were only joking, you were only joking, brother 
You were only joking, you were only joking, brother 
And you were only joking,               you were only joking, brother 
(Gravel and glass...) (I bruised my heels...)
You were joking,                      you were only joking, brother 
(You kissed me like a soldier...) (I'm a dying man...)
And you were only joking,                  you were only joking, brother 
(...dying man, but I don't know what for...)
                  D                  D  
And you were only, and you were only, and you were only
 G    Em7  C(9)      Dsus-D-D(9)-D     G [stop]   n.c.

Joking, brother One two three four...
Sha-la, sha-la, sha-la, sha-la

Sha-la,             sha-la,      sha-la,                 sha-la

(Wide-eyed and laughing) (Dancing up to the bright side)
