Verse 1:

	G            Bm
	I started a joke
	  C                 D          G      Bm   C
	Which started the whole world crying
	    D         G   Bm   C
	But I didn't see
	          D   [1, 4: G  Bm  C  D ; 2, 3: G]
	That the joke was on me, oh no

Verse 2:

	I started to cry
	Which started the whole world laughing
	Oh, if I'd only seen
	That the joke was on me

Chorus:

	Em               Bm
	I looked at the skies
	             C            G
	Running my hands over my eyes
	    Bm            Em  
	And I fell out of bed
	 /D         Am
	Hurting my head
	                      D     [N.C.]
	From things that I'd said

Verse 3:

	'Til I finally died
	Which started the whole world living
	Oh, if I'd only seen [4: oh, yeah]
	That the joke was on me

[repeat chorus]

[repeat verse 3]

Coda:

	         (D)         G   Bm  C  D 
	That the joke was on me
	G   Bm   C   D    G [end cold]
	Oh...
