The Joke Guitar Chords Brandi Carlile

[Intro]
C Gm F C

[Verse 1]
C Gm
You’re feeling nervous, aren’t you, boy?
F C
With your quiet voice and impeccable style
Gm
Don’t ever let them steal your joy
F C
And your gentle ways, to keep ’em from running wild

They can kick dirt in your face
Gm
Dress you down, and tell you that your place
F C
Is in the middle, when they hate the way you shine
Gm
I see you tugging on your shirt
F C
Trying to hide inside of it and hide how much it hurts

[Refrain]
C Gm
Let ’em laugh while they can
F Fm C
Let ’em spin, let ’em scatter in the wind
E F
I have been to the movies, I’ve seen how it ends
Fm C
And the joke’s on them

[Verse 2]
C Gm
You get discouraged, don’t you, girl?
F C
It’s your brother’s world for a while longer
C
We gotta dance with the devil on a river
Gm
To beat the stream
F C
Call it living the dream, call it kicking the ladder
C
They come to kick dirt in your face
Gm
To call you weak and then displace you
F C
After carrying your baby on your back across the desert
Gm
I saw your eyes behind your hair
F C
And you’re looking tired, but you don’t look scared

[Refrain]
C Gm
Let ’em laugh while they can
F Fm C
Let ’em spin, let ’em scatter in the wind
E F
I have been to the movies, I’ve seen how it ends
Fm C
And the joke’s on them

[Interlude]
