JOKING (Amy Ray)
 
 ----------------

[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.]
[G] [inEm7]tro] [C(9)] [D] [G] [Em7] [C(9)] [Dsus-D-D(9)-D]
You said the w[G]orld was magic, I was w[Em7]ide-eyed and laughing
[C(9)] We were dancing u[D]p to the bright side
For[G]get about your ego, for[Em7]get about your pride
[C(9)] And you will never have to [D]compromise[D]
And you were only j[G]oking,[Em7] you were only j[C(9)]oking, brother[Dsus-D-D(9)-D]
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
I'm a dying man, but I don't know what for [stop]
And you were only j[G]oking,[Em7] you were only j[C(9)]oking, brother[D]
You were only j[G]oking, [Em7] you were [C(9)]only joking, brother[D]
(Wide-eyed and laughing) (Dancing...)
[G] [guEm7]itar [C(9)]solo] [D] [G] [Em7] [C(9)] [D] [G] [Em7] [C(9)] [D]
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
You shake it off with a smirk and a toss [stop]
And you were only j[G]oking,[Em7] you were only j[C(9)]oking, brother[D]
You were only j[G]oking,[Em7] you were only j[C(9)]oking, brother[D]
And you were only j[G]oking, [Em7] you were only j[C(9)]oking, brother[D]
(Gravel and glass...) (I bruised my heels...)
You were j[G]oking, [Em7] you were only j[C(9)]oking, brother[D]
(You kissed me like a soldier...) (I'm a dying man...)
And you were only j[G]oking, [Em7] you were only j[C(9)]oking, brother[D]
(...dying man, but I don't know what for...)
D D [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...
[G] [inEm7]strum[C(9)]ental] [D] [G] [Em7] [C(9)] [D]
[G]Sha-la, [Em7]sha-la, [C(9)]sha-la, [D]sha-la
[G]Sha-la, [Em7]sha-la, [C(9)]sha-la, [D]sha-la
(Wide-eyed and laughing) (Dancing up to the bright side)
