Song: THE JOKE

Tuning: It’s normal tuning but sometimes when they play it live they use ½ step down tuning.

I’ve been searching for this tab everywhere but just couldn’t  find one that sounded 
 So here is the way I play it!  Any suggestions please send me an email.
Email: torombolo70@hotmail.com
There are some chords that I don’t know the name so I called them X and Z as you’ll see 
Pay attention in the intro chorus he just plays Dm and Gm. These also repeats again 
the last chorus.

Chorus and  Slow Verse            Pre- Chorus

      Dm    Gm    A           A#m      X         C       Z
E-----5-----3-----5------------1-------x---------0-------x---|
B-----6-----3-----5------------2-------2---------1-------2---|
G-----7-----3-----6------------3------ 3---------0-------2---|
D-----7-----5-----7------------3-------3---------2-------x---|
A-----5-----5-----7------------1-------2---------3-------4---|
E-----x-----3-----5------------x-------x---------x-------x---|


       Part after the second chorus
         D           Gm          C           A
 E-------2-----------3-----------0-----------0---------------|
 B-------3-----------3-----------1-----------2---------------|
 G-------2-----------3---------- 0-----------2---------------|
 D------ 0-----------5-----------2-----------2---------------|
 A-------------------5-----------3-----------0---------------|
 E-------------------3-----------x-----------x---------------|

           Dm
When you find me in the morning
Hanging on a warning
    Gm
Oh... The joke is on you
       Dm
You said you were pretending
Here's to unhappy endings


    Gm       A
Oh... The joke is on you
    Dm
To make sure yesterday doesn't repeat
I took a shortcut home
A left on the street
     Gm     A
I know they won't find me here
   Dm
I found out how to make mama proud
Be real quiet, don't talk too loud
 Gm    A
I try, try to disappear

   A#m
My life is for the taking
    X                   C
Breakdown is awaking me
            Z
I'm ending all this pain

         Dm
When you find me in the morning
Hanging on a warning
   Gm           A
Oh... The joke is on you
      Dm
You said you were pretending
Here's to unhappy endings
   Gm          A
Oh... The joke is on you
   Dm
This is my last day
Should have been my first kiss
Think to myself will I ever be missed?
     Gm        A
I hope... Or maybe I don't care
     Dm
I wear my T around my neck
I love them so much
Gonna love them to death
   Gm                     A
Tonight...  I See the world through my eyes

      A#m
My life is for the taking
    X                   C
Breakdown is erasing me
      Z
I'm ending all this pain

[CHORUS]

D
My great escape
Gm
Is my biggest mistake
C
I think you better turn around
A
Don't throw it away
Today... Today...

         Dm
When you find me in the morning
Hanging on a warning
    Gm
Oh... The joke is on you
       Dm
You said you were pretending
Here's to unhappy endings

    Gm       A
Oh... The joke is on you
D
The joke is on you
Gm
The joke is on you
C
The joke is on you
A
The joke is on you

The Gm and A chords above are not placed in the right position. They moved when I posted the correction. They should be moved over to the right above the words ESCAPE, MISTAKE, TURN, AWAY and YOU... listen to the song..it's easy to figure out. If there are any corrections in the chords played in the pre-chorus I'll send them later...
