I Was Only Joking

A                  Amaj7 
Ever since I was a kid at school  
A7                   D  
I messed around with all the rules 
Dm               A                E              A       
Apologized then realized I'm not different after all 
                         Amaj7         A7         D      
Me & the boys thought we had it sussed Valentinos all of us   
Dm                      A            E                  A 
My dad said we looked rediculous but boy we broke some hearts 
                    Amaj7      A7               D  
In and out of jobs runnin free wagin war with society 
Dm                      A            E            A   
Some blank faces stare back at me & nothin ever changed 
                     Amaj7             A7                     D 
Promises made in the heat of the night creepin home before it got too light 
Dm                  A                 E               A 
I wasted all that precious time and blamed it on the wine 
  A          D  E         A    
  I was only jo-king  my dear (my dear) 
                D      E        A 
  Looking for a way to hide my fear (my fear) 
               D  E      A    
  What kind of fo-ol was I (was I) 
           Bmin 
  I could never win (never win)  

Riff                  A 

A              Amaj7     A7                    D  
Never found a comprimise collected lovers like butterflies 
Dm                 A               E            A 
Illusions of that grand first prize are slowly wasted 
                    Amaj7      A7             D  
Suzie baby you were good to me givin' love unselfishly 
Dm                       A 
But you took it all too seriously 
E                 A 
I guess it had to end 
  A          D  E         A    
  I was only jo-king  my dear (my dear) 
                D      E        A 
  Looking for a way to hide my fear (my fear) 
               D  E      A    
  What kind of fo-ol was I (was I) 
           Bmin 
  I could never win (never win)  

Riff  A 

                  Amaj7       A7                         D 
Now you ask me if I'm sincere that's the question that I always fear 
Dm                  A                   E                       A  
The first seven is never clear but I'll tell you what you wanna hear 
                     Amaj7        A7                          D     
I'll try to give you all you want but givin' love is not my strongest point 
Dm                                A        E               A  
If that's the case it's pointless goin' on I'd rather be alone 
                     Amaj7         A7                   D  
'Cause what I'm doin must be wrong pourin' my heart out in a song 
Dm                 A               E                  A  
Owning up for prosperity for the whole damn world to see 
                    Amaj7       A7                     D     
Quietly now while I turn a page Act 20's over without costume change 
    Dm                       A  
The principal would like to leave the stage 
     E                 A 
The crowd don't understand
