JOKING

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.]

 intro

 GEm7
You said the world was magic, I was wide-eyed and laughing
 C(9D
   We were dancing up to the bright side
 GEm7
Forget about your ego, forget about your pride
 C(9DD
   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
 stop
I'm a dying man, but I don't know what for  
 GEm7C(9D
And you were only joking, you were only joking, brother 
 GEm7C(9D
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
 stop
You shake it off with a smirk and a toss  
 GEm7C(9D
And you were only joking, you were only joking, brother 
 GEm7C(9D
You were only joking, you were only joking, brother 
 GEm7C(9D
And you were only joking,               you were only joking, brother 
(Gravel and glass...) (I bruised my heels...)
 GEm7C(9D
You were joking,                      you were only joking, brother 
(You kissed me like a soldier...) (I'm a dying man...)
 GEm7C(9D
And you were only joking,                  you were only joking, brother 
(...dying man, but I don't know what for...)
 stop

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...
