Jokerman Tab

Sorry i only got the chorus for now but this is me first tab so yea...


yea for the verses i jus play the 1 fret on the e string but i noticed some ppl do this 
heres the words 2

Standin on the waters, castin your bread,
while the eyes of the idol with the iron head are glowing
distant ships sailing into the mist
you were born with a snake in both of your fists
while a hurricane was blowing
freedon just around the corner for you
but with the truth so far off, wat good'll it do?

Jokerman dance to the nightingale tune
Bird fly high to the light of the moon

So swiftly the sun sets in the sky
you rise up and say goodbye to no one
fools rush in where angels fear to tread
both of their futures, so full of dread, you don't show one
Shedding off one more layer of skin
keeping one step ahead of the persecutor within

[ Tab from: ]
you're a man of the mountains, you can walk on the clouds
manipulator of crowds, youre a dream twister
your going to Soddom and Gomorrah but what do you care?
aint nobody there would want to marry your sister
friend to the martyr, a friend to the woman of shame
you look into the fiery furnace, see the rich man without any name


Well the book of Leviticus and Deuteronomy
the law of the jungle and of the sea are your only teachers
in the smoke of the twilight, on a milk white seed
Michelangelo could have indeed carved out your features
resting in the fields, far from the turbulent space
half asleep near the stars with a small dog licking your face


Well, the riflemans stalking the sick and the lame
preacherman seeks the same, who'll get there first is uncertain
nightsticks and watercannons, tear gas, padlocks
Molotov cocktails and rocks behind every curtain
false-hearted judges dying in the webs that they spin
only a matter of time til the night comes steppin in


It's a shadowy world, skies are slippery gray
a woman just gave birth to a prince today and dressed him in scarlet
he'll put the priest in his pocket, put the blade to the heat
take the motherless children off the street
and place them at the feet of a harlot
o Jokerman, you kno wat he wants
o Jokerman, you dont sho any response


yep 1 tab ever
