Everybody Knows Chords by Dixie Chicks, www.Ultimate-Guitar.Com
Artist: Dixie Chicks
Song: Everybody Knows
Album: Taking The Long Way
Capo 2

  G                        D
Tell me now if you came sneaking up behind
Em                    C
Would you know me and see behind the smile?
G                    D
I can change like colors on a wall
 Em                               C
Hoping no-one else will find what lies beneath it all

I think I hide it oh so well

G                                   C
Stepping out, everyone can see my face
All the things I can’t erase
From my life
Everybody knows
G                                    C
Standing out so you won’t forget my name
That’s the way we play this game
Of life
Everybody knows

Looking through the crowd I search for something else
But every time I turn around I run into myself
Here I stand consumed with my surroundings
Just another day of everybody looking

   C                 D
I swore they’d never see me cry
         C           D
They’d never see me cry


You say I’ll pay the price
That’s a chance that I’ll take 
Though you may think I’m telling lies

But I just call it getting by


Everybody knows (everybody knows)
I’m just barely getting by (everybody knows)

It would be great if the song were completed with chords. When learning it helps not having to refer back to earlier verses.

Both versions of this song are incorrect on the final bridge starting with "You say I'll pay the price". Its G, D, A, E, G, D, Bm and E, then repeat the chorus. Other than that, looks good and sounds right to the recording I downloaded off iTune.
