Intro: D  Am7  G  D
 
Verse 1:
D                                   Am7
You're feeling nervous, aren't you, boy?
                G                    D
With your quiet voice and impeccable style
                               Am7
Don't ever let them steal your joy
                G                              D
And your gentle ways, to keep 'em from running wild
 
They can kick dirt in your face
Am7
Dress you down, and tell you that your place
          G                                  D
Is in the middle, when they hate the way you shine
                          Am7
I see you tugging on your shirt
                 G                               D
Trying to hide inside of it and hide how much it hurts
 
Pre-Chorus:
        D                Am7
Let 'em laugh while they can
        G             Gm             D
Let 'em spin, let 'em scatter in the wind
                   Gb                       G
I have been to the movies, I've seen how it ends
        Gm        D       Am7 G D
And the joke's on them
 
Verse 2:
D                                  Am7
You get discouraged, don't you, girl?
                     G                       D
It's your brother's world for a while longer
         D
We gotta dance with the devil on a river
               Am7
To beat the stream
                   G                           D
Call it living the dream, call it kicking the ladder
      D
They come to kick dirt in your face
   Am7
To call you weak and then displace you
      G                                             D
After carrying your baby on your back across the desert
                            Am7
I saw your eyes behind your hair
                     G                         D
And you're looking tired, but you don't look scared
 
Pre-Chorus:
        D                Am7
Let 'em laugh while they can
        G             Gm             D
Let 'em spin, let 'em scatter in the wind
                   Gb                       G
I have been to the movies, I've seen how it ends
        Gm        D
And the joke's on them
 
Interlude: D  Am7  G  D
 
        D                Am7
Let 'em laugh while they can
        G             Gm             D
Let 'em spin, let 'em scatter in the wind
                   Gb                       G
I have been to the movies, I've seen how it ends
        Gm        D     Am7 -   G -   Gm
And the joke's on them
 
Outro -x3-: D  Am7  G  D
