I Started a Joke

by: Bee Gees

INTRO: [G-Bm-C-D (2x)]

[G            Bm-C]
I started a joke
[              D                G-Bm-C]
Which started the whole world crying
[    D         G-Bm-C]
But I didn't see
[      D              G-Bm-C-D]
That the joke was on me...

[G             Bm-C]
I started to cry
[              D                 G-Bm-C]
Which started the whole world laughing
[       D         G-Bm-C]
Oh, if I'd only seen
[          D          G]
That the joke was on me

REFRAIN:
[Em                Bm]
I looked at the skies
[            C             G]
Running my hands over my eyes
[   Bm              Em             Am]
And I fell out of bed hurting my head
[                        D]
From the things I have said

[    G           Bm-C]
Till I finally died
[              D           G-Bm-C]
Which started the world living
[       D         G-Bm-C]
Oh, if I'd only seen
[         D           G-Bm]
That the joke was on me

CODA:
[    C         D             G-Bm-C-D]
Oh no, that the joke was on meeeh-
[G-Bm-C-D-G]
Oh--
