Jeremiah was a bullfrog      was a good friend of mine 

D            C              G       G7          D             A7        D
I never understood a single word he said, but I helped him to drink his wine.

D      C               G           D
And he always had some mighty fine wine, singin'

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

D          C             G         G7   D      A7      D
Joy to the fishes in the deep blue sea, joy to you and me.
D                              C,A7,D                      C,A7,D
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, 

D              A7      D
and make sweet love to you, singin' now

(Instrumental break)

D                         C,A7,D                   C,A7,D
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.

-Nate Nypaver (Beatlemaniac87)

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