Joy To the World Hoyt Axton
[D]Jeremiah was a bullfrog,[C] [Db] [D]
[D]Was a good friend of mine,[C] [Db] [D]
Never under[D7]stood a single [G]word he [Bb6]said,
But I [D]helped him a-[A7]drinkin' his [D]wine,
Yes, he [G7]always had some [A7]mighty fine [D]wine.
Singing j[D]oy to the world,
[A7]All the boys and g[D]irls now.
[D7]Joy to the fishes in the [G]deep blue [Bb6]sea,
[D]Joy to [A7]you and [D]me.
If I were the king of the world,
Tell you what I'd do:
Throw away the cars and the bars and the wars,
And make sweet love to you.
Yes, I'd make sweet love to you.
You know I love the ladies,
Love to have my fun.
I'm a high night flyer and a rainbow rider,
A straight shootin' son-of-a-gun.
Yes, a straight shootin' son-of-a-gun.
