Are You Happy Now?  Richard Shindell

Are You Happy Now? - Richard Shindell (Sparrow's Point)
transcribed by laura
i think this song is actually in the key of F, but i've seen him live
and i believe he uses a capo on the 3rd fret, which would use the chords
D G A Em, but i find it easier to put the capo on the first fret and play it
this way:
(of course if you have a better idea feel free to express it)

(happy jangly strumming)
capo I
(barre chords where appropriate)
[E] [A] [E] [A]  
You[E] took the toaster when you wen[A]t
You never paid your half the r[E]ent
You took the spices from the [A]rack
But you don't have to put 'em b[E]ack
'Cause in your haste on Hallo[B]ween
You left your camera on the [F#m]bed
Where we played roles in black and w[A]hite
You left a roll of black and w[F#m]hite
I set the timer, thought of [B]you
Put the lens up to my h[F#m]ead
I took a photograph for [A]you
What comes out gray is really [E]red
So are [B]yo[F#m]u...[A] happy no[E]w?
Are [B]yo[F#m]u...[A].. happy n[E]ow?
Are [B]yo[F#m]u...[A]. happy n[E]ow?[B] [F#m]
[E]I smashed your pumpkin on the fl[A]oor
The candle flickered at my f[E]eet
As goblins flew across the [A]moon
The children peered into the r[E]oom
A cowboy shivered on the p[B]orch
And Cinderella checked her [F#m]watch
A hobo waited in the [A]street
An angel whispered trick or [F#m]treat
What was I supposed to d[B]o
But to sit there in the [F#m]dark
I was amazed to think that yo[A]u
Would take the candy with you t[E]oo
So are [B]yo[F#m]u...[A] happy no[E]w?
Are [B]yo[F#m]u...[A].. happy n[E]ow?
Are [B]yo[F#m]u...[A]. happy n[E]ow?[B] [F#m]
[E]I've sat all night, and now it's dawn[A]
And I cannot believe my e[E]yes
There's garbage strewn across the [A]lawn
Where we once stared up at the s[E]ky
And streams of paper fill the t[B]ree
That hovered over you and [F#m]me
And shaving cream covers the c[A]ar
That we picked up in Balti[F#m]more
And though I know it's hard to t[B]ell
I hope that what's-his-name treats you )[F#m]well
I still maintain that he's a [A]bum
But it's your money, have some f[E]un
S[B]o [F#m]are [A] you... happy n[E]ow?
Are [B]yo[F#m]u...[A].. happy n[E]ow?
Are [B]yo[F#m]u...[A]. happy n[E]ow?[B]
[F#m]You always asked why I had [B]not
Written you a verse or [F#m]two
Since that's the one thing I [A]regret
I dedicate this one to y[E]ou
[B]So[F#m] are[A] you... happy [E]now?
Are [B]yo[F#m]u...[A].. happy n[E]ow?
Are [B]yo[F#m]u...[A]......[E] ?[B] [F#m] [E]
