Josh Joplin - The World On A Shoestring



[Intro]
G  D  C  D  (4x)  G

[Verse 1]
  D    C      D      G
I am extraordinarily good
        D       C        D  G
At sleeping the day away
  D            C      D      G
I thought with my experience
           D     C      D  G
I'd put it on my résumé
          D   C   D            G
So here I am, unemployed again
            D     C
As broke as I can be


[Pre-Chorus]
    A
But all I need is this old guitar
   C
An open case and a crowded street


[Chorus]
G            D          F            C
I've got the world on a shoestring
G            D          F            C   G
I've got the world on a shoestring


[Verse 2]
   D         C         D           G
My head's as full as a Ryder truck
       D      C               D  G
Double-parked down the street
    D    C         D           G
All the ideas I've packed away
      D     C             D  G
Stack up so nice and neat
      D      C        D
But I didn't mark the boxes
     G                D        C
So I don't know where anything is


[Pre-Chorus]
A
Paper bags of random facts
C
Taped-up dates and laundry lists


[Chorus]
G            D          F            C
I've got the world on a shoestring
G            D          F            C   G
I've got the world on a shoestring


[Bridge]
       G         D
If you ain't got money
C                 D
That's all right, honey
       G       D        C
'Cause I ain't got none too
       G       D
We can be star-crossed
    C             D
And get ourselves lost
C             D
Down Fifth Avenue


[Interlude]
   G  D  C  D
Ohhh
   G  D  C  D
Ohhh
G  D  C  D
G  D  C  D  G


[Verse 3]
    D       C            D               G
You look so good in your brand-new dress
        D         C            D  G
But you look good all the time
           D      C        D             G
I love the little pictures that you draw
    D         C          D  G
And leave for me to find
         D     C    D
And if I had a big apartment
    G          D      C
I'd frame them on the wall


[Pre-Chorus]
    A
But what do I need with lots of space?
         C
I've got rent control and you to call


[Chorus]
G            D          F            C
I've got the world on a shoestring
G            D          F            C   G
I've got the world on a shoestring


[Chorus]
G            D          F            C
I've got the world on a shoestring
G            D          F            C
I've got the world on a shoestring
G            D          F                    C
I've got the world on a shoestring, Ba da da da
G            D     N.C.
I've got the world on a shoestring
