Laugh and Be Happy

Some chords aren't totally there, or some are incorrect, but if you're crafty, I 
bet you can finish the song.  No one has posted anything so I thought I'd give it a shot.

C                      B        C
I know what's going on here 
C      E      Am
Ain't no mystery 
E            Am7
Y'all have lost faith in yourselves 
D7                           G7
It's as clear as it can be 

C                       B      C
You can whine all you want to 
Am                  AmMaj7
Drown in your misery 
(G#-D-A#)
Or you can listen to me 
D7        G7
Listen to me 

C              CMaj7
Laugh and be happy 
                F                Fm
Don't you ever wear a frown 
Am7             Em                      D7,    G7
Don't let the bastards grind you down 

C                   CMaj7
Laugh and be happy 
                   F            Fm
It's a simple thing to do 
Am7                  Em
Believe in your dreams 
               D7                       G7
And your dreams will come true for you 

                   Am D#(F)Em          D#(FD7 G7
There'll be a red sun shining in a sky so blue 
D#(F)       G7                C
Blackbirds singing in the trees 
               Am D#(F  Em           
There's a real silver lining 
                  D#(FD7 G7
Up there for me and you 
D#(F)   
Listen to me 
G7
Listen to me 

(Repeat chorus)

             Am       E7         FMaj7     E7
Now the country that we're living in 
                                                   FMaj7   G7   C
Happy Immigrants: You mean the good ol' USA?
C
That's right! 
      Am            Em7   G7              C
It's never been about keeping you out 
               D7                        G7
It's about inviting you in and letting you play 

C              CMaj7
Laugh and be happy

Don't you ever wear a frown 
Am7               Em                      
Get right back on your feet 
D7                             G7
Whenever they knock you down

                     C                CMaj7
You've got to laugh and be happy
F                          Fm
Smile right in their face 
           Am7   Em
'Cause pretty soon 
           D7      G7
You're gonna take their place

                    Fm                                   C#7
They’ll come whack whack whackin' like old man trouble 
Fm               C#7           Fm
Whacking on your front door 
                  G#                     D#
They try to send you packin' on the double 
      G#                  D#   
But you ain't going away no more 

F                   FMaj7

Don't you ever wear a frown 
Dm7              Am                G7,                                C7

Now listen to what I say 
G7,               C7
Everything's going to go your way 
You’ll be on top of the world
