I never understood a single word he said, but I helped him to drink his wine.

And he always had some mighty fine wine, singin'

D                  A7               D
Joy to the world.  All the boys and girls, now.

If I were the king of the world      I tell you what I'd do

D                  C             G             G7          
I'd throw away the cars, and the bars, and the war,

and make sweet love to you, singin' now

(Instrumental break)

You know I love the ladies      love to have my fun

D               C           G       G7
I'm a highlight flyer and a rainbow rider,

  D                 A7       D
a straight shootin' son of a gun (alright!) 

D        C                 G        D
I said a straight shootin' son of a gun.

Refrain. (Repeat refrain)

D     C  G          D         C    G     
  Joy to the world.   All the boys and girls. 

D     C  G          D        C   G  
  Joy to the world.   Joy to you and me.

Refrain. Repeat and fade. 
For the A7 chord, optional fingering sounds good. However, both forms of the chord sound OK.

TRUST me, I went through great pains to insure this tabs playability w/ the actual song. All chords are indeed correct!
