The Joke

	  		
Intro: D  Am  G  D 

verse 1 
D                                   Am 
You're feeling nervous, aren't you, boy? 
                G                    D 
With your quiet voice and impeccable style 
                               Am 
Don't ever let them steal your joy 
                G                              D 
And your gentle ways, to keep 'em from running wild 

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

D Am Let 'em laugh while they can G Gm D Let 'em spin, let 'em scatter in the wind F# G I have been to the movies, I've seen how it ends Gm D And the joke's on them

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