Standing  In  For  Joe


                Dsus4
I'm standing...
A   Asus4 A Asus4 A
Standing in for Joe
  D
Joe called round to ask me
F#m
Would I do a favor
G           D        A          Asus4 A Asus4 A
While he's gonna be out of town
A                   D
Said his girl needs company
     F#m
She gets so restless
G       D         A             Asus4 A Asus4 A
Would I keep her safe and sound
D             E
Softly softly in the night
F#m                    F    (bass notes EDCBAGF)
Well you can guess the rest
A                    D
Now these shoes fit all too well
G        D      A   Asus4
Standing in for Joe
G        D      A   Asus4
Standing in for Joe
G                   (A7sus4  'sitar twiddle') A
I'm standing in for Joe

A                                       D
Joe said we've been friends so long
F#m                             G
That I would be the one
        D                 A              Asus4 A Asus4 A
He would trust with his life
A                                 D
Now those words run round my brain
        F#m
As darkness falls
        G         D             A               Asus4 A Asus4 A
As I turn out his bedroom light
D                                       E
Who could resist her tender charms
F#m          F    (bass notes EDCBAGF)
So the story goes
A                   D
This actor he plays all the parts
G        D      A   Asus4
Standing in for Joe
G        D      A   Asus4
Standing in for Joe
G                   (A7sus4  'sitar twiddle')
Oh, I'm standing in for...
F#m            E
Love is like a river
F#m             F     (A7sus4  'sitar twiddle') A
You cannot stop its flow

A                                 D
Joe called round to ask me
F#m
Would I do a favor
G           D        A          Asus4 A Asus4 A
While he's gonna be out of town
A                   D
He says his girl needs company
     F#m
She gets so restless
G       D         A                     Asus4 A Asus4 A
Would I check that she’s safe and sound

D             E
Softly softly in the night
F#m                    F    (bass notes EDCBAGF)
Well you can guess the rest
A                    D
Now these shoes fit all too well
G        D      A   Asus4
Standing in for Joe
G        D      A   Asus4
Standing in for Joe

(rinse and repeat)
