"That Joke Isn't Funny Anymore" - The Smiths
(Marr/Morrissey)

transcribed by Adam Schaffer


Notes:

Tune up two semitones to F# or capo on the 2nd fret.  As if you
didn't figure it out, the main part is played on an 12-string
acoustic.  For chords with asterisks (*) below them, the note on
the low E string should be played using your thumb.
