JOKING (Amy Ray)
----------------
(The net result of all the instruments is G Em7 Cadd9 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.)

[Intro]
G  Em7  Cadd9  D     G  Em7  Cadd9  Dsus-D-D(9)-D

              G                      Em7
You said the world was magic, I was wide-eyed and laughing
Cadd9              D
  We were dancing up to the bright side
   G                      Em7
Forget about your ego, forget about your pride
Cadd9                        D          D
  And you will never have to compromise

                   G     Em7             Cadd9         Dsus-D-D(9)-D
And you were only joking, you were only joking, brother

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]

                   G     Em7             Cadd9         D
And you were only joking, you were only joking, brother
               G               Em7                 Cadd9                     D
You were only joking,                     you were only joking,       brother
                      (Wide-eyed and laughing)                  (Dancing...)

[Guitar Solo]
G  Em7  Cadd9  D    G  Em7  Cadd9  D    G  Em7  Cadd9  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]

                   G     Em7             Cadd9         D
And you were only joking, you were only joking, brother
               G     Em7             Cadd9         D
You were only joking, you were only joking, brother
                   G                 Em7               Cadd9            D
And you were only joking,               you were only joking, brother
                   (Gravel and glass...)         (I bruised my heels...)

          G                        Em7               Cadd9            D
You were joking,                      you were only joking, brother
    (You kissed me like a soldier...)         (I'm a dying man...)
                   G           Em7                        Cadd9         D
And you were only joking,                  you were only joking, brother
                    (...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  Cadd9     Dsus-D-D(9)-D     G [stop]   N.C.
Joking,        brother                            One two three four...

[Instrumental]
G  Em7  Cadd9 D     G  Em7  Cadd9  D

G       Em7     Cadd9   D
Sha-la, sha-la, sha-la, sha-la
G                   Em7          Cadd9                   D
Sha-la,             sha-la,      sha-la,                 sha-la
    (Wide-eyed and laughing)         (Dancing up to the bright side)

[repeat and fade]
