Joyful Girl  Ani DiFranco

These are the chords for the version she plays at the Bronco Bowl Theatre in
Texas, 1999. When you play the C chord, put your pinky finger on the first string,
third fret. Watch the video to get the timing. It sounds like it's in a tad
different key in the beginning; If anyone would like to correct me, please do.
I do it for the joy it b[C]rings
Because I'm a joyful girl[G] [Am]
Because the world owes me nothing[C]
And we owe each other the wor[G]ld[Am]
I do it because it's the least I can do[C]
I do it because I learned it f[G]rom you[Am]
I do it just becaus[C]e I want to
[G]Because I want to[Am]
Everything I do is jud[C]ged
And they mostly get it wrong, but oh wel[G]l[Am]
'Cuz the bathroom mirror has not b[C]udged
And the woman who lives there can't te[G]ll[Am]
The truth from the stuff that they [C]say
And she looks me in the eye[G] [Am]
And says would you prefer the easy way?[C]
No, well O.K. [G]then, don't cry[Am]
(The part in between consists of Dm, C, Em, and G.)
And I wonder if everything I[C] do
I [G]do i[Am]nstead
Of something I want to do[C] more
The ques[G]tion fills my head[Am]
I know that there's no grand plan here[C]
This is just the way it goe[G]s[Am]
And when everything else seems unclear[C]
I guess at least I [G]know[Am]
