[Intro]
Am*

[Verse]
                           Dm*    E*   Am*
The moon is hanging in the purple sky
                          Dm*    E*   bass Dm*
Baby's sleeping while its mother sighs
E*                Am*
Talking 'bout the rich folks
                  Dm*
Rich folks have the same jokes
    E*                 Am*
And they park in basic places

[Verse]
The priest is preaching from a shallow grave
He counts his money, then he paints you saved
Talking to the young folks
Young folks share the same jokes
But they meet in older places

[Chorus]
Dm*        E             Am* 
  So don't tell me about your success
Dm*        E              Am* 
  Nor your recipes for my happiness
Dm*        E
  Smoke in bed
        Am*
I never could digest
Dm*                   E             Am*
  Those illusions you claim to have going

[Verse]
The sun is shining, as it's always done
Carbon dust is the fate of everyone
Talking 'bout the rich folks
The poor create the rich hoax
And only late breast-fed fools believe it

[Chorus]
So don't tell me about your success
Nor your recipes for my happiness
Smoke in bed
I never could digest
Those illusions you claim to have going

Where is the sound? When I view on my laptop the chord plays when I rap the tab. It doesn't do that when viewing on my iPad, or when I'm in the UG app.
