Song: THE JOKE

Tuning: Itís normal tuning but sometimes when they play it live they use Ĺ step down tuning.

Iíve been searching for this tab everywhere but just couldnít  find one that sounded 
 So here is the way I play it!  Any suggestions please send me an email.

There are some chords that I donít know the name so I called them X and Z as youíll see 
Pay attention in the intro chorus he just plays Dm and Gm. These also repeats again 
the last chorus.

           Dm
When you find me in the morning
Hanging on a warning
    Gm
Oh... The joke is on you
       Dm
You said you were pretending
Here's to unhappy endings

[ Tab from: http://www.guitaretab.com/l/lifehouse/104742.html ]
    Gm       A
Oh... The joke is on you
    Dm
To make sure yesterday doesn't repeat
I took a shortcut home
A left on the street
     Gm     A
I know they won't find me here
   Dm
I found out how to make mama proud
Be real quiet, don't talk too loud
 Gm    A
I try, try to disappear

   A#m
My life is for the taking
    X                   C
Breakdown is awaking me
            Z
I'm ending all this pain

         Dm
When you find me in the morning
Hanging on a warning
   Gm           A
Oh... The joke is on you
      Dm
You said you were pretending
Here's to unhappy endings
   Gm          A
Oh... The joke is on you
   Dm
This is my last day
Should have been my first kiss
Think to myself will I ever be missed?
     Gm        A
I hope... Or maybe I don't care
     Dm
I wear my T around my neck
I love them so much
Gonna love them to death
   Gm                     A
Tonight...  I See the world through my eyes

      A#m
My life is for the taking
    X                   C
Breakdown is erasing me
      Z
I'm ending all this pain

[CHORUS]

D
My great escape
Gm
Is my biggest mistake
C
I think you better turn around
A
Don't throw it away
Today... Today...

         Dm
When you find me in the morning
Hanging on a warning
    Gm
Oh... The joke is on you
       Dm
You said you were pretending
Here's to unhappy endings

    Gm       A
Oh... The joke is on you
D
The joke is on you
Gm
The joke is on you
C
The joke is on you
A
The joke is on you
