Intro:
[G G][C/G C/G]  x4

1st verse:
          G G   C/G C/G              G G    C/G C/G
I've been long a long way from here
G G              C/G C/G                        G G                         C C
Put on a poncho, played for mosquitos and drank 'til I was thirsty again
        G G        C/G C/G                    G G       C/G C/G
We went searching, through thrift store jungles
          G G            C/G C/G                     G G                            C C
Found Geronimo's rifle, Marilyn's shampoo, and Benny Goodman's corset and a pen


Pre-chorus:
      C C                D D  
Well, O.K. I made this up 
  C C                           D D-   X
I promised you I'd never give up


Chorus:
                Am Am    C C                 G G    D D 
If it makes you happy, it can't be that bad
                Am Am    C C                          G G      C/G C/G
If it makes you happy, then why the hell are you so sad?

[G G][C/G C/G] 



2nd verse:
        G G    C/G C/G   G G       C/G C/G
You get down, real low down
    G G                   C/G C/G                         G G                       C C
You listen to Coltrane, derail your own train, well who hasn't been there before?
       G G    C/G C/G          G G         C/G C/G
I come round, around the hard way, 
          G G                C/G C/G                             G G                       C C
Bring you comics in bed, scrape the mold off the bread and serve you French toast again



Pre-chorus:
      C C                 D D  
Well, O.K. I still get stoned
  C C                            D D-   X
I'm not the kind of girl you'd take home



Chorus:
                Am Am    C C                 G G   D D 
If it makes you happy, it can't be that bad
                Am Am    C C                          G G     C/G C/G  G G 
If it makes you happy, then why the hell are you so sad
                Am Am    C C                 G G   D D 
If it makes you happy, it can't be that bad
                Am Am    C C                          Em Em>let ring  (Em Em)
If it makes you happy, then why the hell are you so sad?

Bridge:
          G G   C/G C/G            G G    C/G C/G
I've been far, far away from here
G G              C/G C/G                        G G                C C
Put on a poncho, played for mosquitos and everywhere in between


Pre-chorus:
      C C            D D  
Well, O.K. we get along
   C C                              D D-   X
So what if right now everything's wrong?


Chorus:
                Am Am    C C                 G G   D D 
If it makes you happy, it can't be that bad
                Am Am    C C                          G G     C/G C/G  G G 
If it makes you happy, then why the hell are you so sad
                Am Am    C C                 G G   D D 
If it makes you happy, it can't be that bad
                Am Am    C C                          G G     C/G C/G  G G 
If it makes you happy, then why the hell are you so sad
