Released at October 26th 1987, this track opens the Smiths' fourth and last
album, "Strangeways, Here We Come". Sweeping with a pumping tango-ish piano,
followed with Moz's melancholic singing, this one is a easy, but catchy, tune.

   Dm  Bb  C  Dm
He------------llo, 
         Bb           C    Dm 
I am the ghost of troubled Joe
            Bb         C     Dm                  Bb
Hung by his pretty neck some eighteen months ago
               C Dm            Bb
I travelled to a mystical time zone
             C  Dm                  Bb
And I missed my bed and I soon came home

     C     Dm                                Bb           C
They said "there's too much caffeine in your bloodstream"
      Dm                         Bb
And a lack of real spice in your life"
                  C Dm                Bb
I  said "leave me alone because I'm alright, dad,
C  Dm                       Bb   C
Surprised to still be on my own"

               Bb                 C
They take what they need and just leave

Don't you mean key of D minor? And A# is really Bb, and D# is Eb.

Hmm, yeah, it's D minor, my bad.
And A# is the same as Bb just like D# is the same as Eb (I'm not actually very sure about when to use each of them is there is really a difference)
