I STARTED A JOKE

      G           Bm
      I started a joke, 

   C                      D           G          Bm
      which started the whole world crying, 
    
   C      D         G           Bm
      but I didn't see 

   C            D          G   Bm     C        D
      that the joke was on me,    oh no. 


       

      G             Bm
      I started to cry, 

   C                      D          G         Bm
      which started the whole world laughing. 

   C          D        G           Bm
      Oh, if I'd only seen 

   C            D          G
      that the joke was on me. 


       
      
      Em               Bm
      I looked at the skies, 

                  C
      running my hands 

              G
      over my eyes, 

          Bm            Em
      and I fell out of bed, 

      Em/D        Am
      hurting my head 

                            D
      from things that I'd said. 


       

          G          Bm
      Til I finally died, 

   C                      D          G          Bm
      which started the whole world living. 

   C         D         G         Bm
      Oh, if I'd only seen 

   C            D           G
      that the joke was on me. 


       


      Em               Bm
      I looked at the skies, 

                  C
      running my hands 

              G
      over my eyes, 

          Bm            Em
      and I fell out of bed, 

      Em/D        Am
      hurting my head 

                            D
      from things that I'd said.

      that the joke was one me,  oh  no

                D            G   Bm   C   D   G
      that the joke was one me                 oh.
