JOKE  (Boo Hewerdine)
---------------------

Written & performed live by Boo Hewerdine, but I don't know of a recording of
it by him. For a recorded version, try Eddi Reader's first album.


[Intro]:

      e ---------------------|--------------------- ---|  (repeat a few times.
      B ---------------------|--------------------- ---|   Also you can play
this
      G ------------------p--|---------------------.---|   over the first two
      D -----------------2-0-|-2---------0---------.---|   lines of the verse
      A -3---------3--------3|--------------------- ---|   -twice per line of
vox)
      E ---------------------|--------------------- ||
beats    ^    ^    ^    ^      ^    ^    ^    ^


C                        G                               C                G
D'you hear the one about the one you're  now  without,   did it make  you
smile?
D'you hear the one about the one you filled with doubt, was it worth your
while?
Am                        D      Am                     D
The way you kick a life around,  deserving to be underground.


[Chorus] :
C              G         C           G
What is this?  Explain. Joke is this some kind of joke.
                         C         G             G
                         Joke, I'm laughing, I'm laughing,
                         C           G       C         G
                     I'm lau-ghing      I'm  la-ughing

C                        G                        C          G
D'you hear the one about the one who fell from   space
One minute in the stars, next minute lying on her face.
Am                             D        Am                          D
She says 'I don't know what to be', and 'does she look younger than me?'


[Chorus]


[Bridge]:
Am                G/B                         Am                      D  C
For a tumble and  something to do   at night, you kick a life a round o- ooh
For a fumble with someone you know at sight . . .
                    Am                       G                          C G C
G
              . . . D'you hear the one about the one you're now without?


Am                             D        Am                          D
She says 'I don't know what to be', and 'does she look younger than me?'
And 'does my make up look alright, can you tell that I've been up all night?'


[Chorus] x 2

end on A C
