Joyful Girl Ukulele

Ani Difranco
These are the chords for the version she plays at the Bronco Bowl Theatre in 
Texas, 1999. When you play the C chord, put your pinky finger on the first string, 
third fret. Watch the video to get the timing. It sounds like it's in a tad 
different key in the beginning; If anyone would like to correct me, please do.

I do it for the joy it brings
                         G        Am
Because I'm a joyful girl
Because the world owes me nothing
                             G                Am
And we owe each other the world
I do it because it's the least I can do
                              G                         Am
I do it because I learned it from you
I do it just because I want to
G                            Am
Because I want to

Everything I do is judged
                                        G                     Am
And they mostly get it wrong, but oh well
'Cuz the bathroom mirror has not budged
                                      G                      Am
And the woman who lives there can't tell
The truth from the stuff that they say
                                G          Am
And she looks me in the eye
And says would you prefer the easy way?
              G                        Am
No, well O.K. then, don't cry

[The part in between consists of Dm, C, Em, and G.]

And I wonder if everything I do
  G   Am
I do instead
Of something I want to do more
        G                            Am
The question fills my head
I know that there's no grand plan here
                           G         Am
This is just the way it goes
And when everything else seems unclear
                   G       Am
I guess at least I know
