Indigo Girls Joking Lyrics

Last updated: 09/28/2006 11:00:00 AM

Words and Music: Amy Ray

You said the world was magic I was wide-eyed and laughing
We were dancing up to the bright side
Forget about your ego forget about your pride
And we will never have to compromise

And you were only joking
You were only joking brother

We talked about mothers kissing the wounds of our fathers
I could have been your sister I would have been your brother
You kissed me like a soldier heading for a war
I'm a dying man but I don't know what for

But you were only joking
You were only joking brother
You were only joking
You were only joking brother

Gravel and glass on the bottom of my feet
I bruised my heels on the swollen street
We were girls in bars, boys on the town
Bumping like a pinball off a careless crowd
You said good friends are hard to come by
I laughed and bought you a beer it's too corny to cry
Well sentiments given, sentiments lost
You shook it off with a smirk and a toss

You were only joking
You were only joking brother

Amy:
You were only joking
You were only joking brother
You kissed me like a soldier heading for a war
I'm a dying man but I don't know what for
Emily:
Gravel and glass on the bottom of my feet
I bruised my heels on the swolen street
Joking
You were only joking brother


And you were only, you were only, you were only joking
Brother

1 - 2 - 3 - 4

Sha na

Sha na
Sha na
Sha na (Wide-eyed and laughing)
Sha na ( Dancing up to the bright side)
Sha na ( Wide-eyed and laughing)
Sha na ( Dancing up to the bright side)
