If It Makes You Happy  Sheryl Crow



G G2 Gx Gy G

I've been long, a long way from here
Put on a poncho, played for mosquitos,
[intro end on C] 
And drank til I was thirsty again
We went searching through thrift store jungles
Found Geronimo's rifle, Marilyn's shampoo
And Benny Goodman's corset and a pen
[C]Well, O.K. I made this [D]up
[C]I promised you I'd never give [D]up
If it makes you [Am]happy [C]
It can't be that [G]bad [D]
If it makes you [Am]happy [C]
Then why the hell are you so sad
You get down, real low down
You listen to Coltrane, derail your own train,
Well who hasn't been there before ?
I come round, around the hard way
Bring you comics in bed, scrape the mold off the bread
And serve you french toast again
Well, O.K. I still get stoned
I'm not the kind of girl you'd take home
[cborus] 2*
We've been far away from
Put on a poncho, played for mosquitos
And everywhere in between
Well, O.K. we get along
So what if right now everything's wrong ?
Solo on [verse]
