 Joey pulled himself to his feet, hauled his body back up the bank
 And looked back down there
G A                                G
   He said the water was not that deep; "But I almost drowned there."
D                                 A
 You can drown in a bathtub, so they say
A                                G
 Someone in class called me a loser, so I decided to skip the day
D                           A
Hey, hey, hey, skip the day
A                                            G
 I tried to look casual sneaking 'round the back, past the shot-put across the track 
D                                A
 And to the gate beside the portables
A                                G
 But a red tie and school grey slacks doesn't blend in with the grass
D                              A
 As the teacher was changing class

Amaj7                             A7
 He chased me halfway through the park, 'til I ran into the woods
Bm       D         A
 And I'm very good in the woods

A                   G
 So I was an Indian; built a fire by the creek 
D                        A
 And dried my eyes there

Amaj7                             A7
 There's a record body count this year
Bm         D           A
 There's a record body count this year

A                                  G
 Joey stepped up on a block of ice, put a rope around his neck
 And fell asleep before he died
