John Mellencamp
Capo III

for Hannah

[Intro]
Am C F C x2

[Verse]
F                           C
When paradise is no longer fit for you to live in
Am                              G
And your adolescent dreams are gone
F                      C
Through the days you feel a little used up
Am                        G
And you don't know where your energy's gone wrong
F                        C
It's just your soul feelin' a little downhearted
Am                    G
Sometimes life is too ridiculous to live
F                     G
You count your friends all on one finger
Am                    G
I know it sounds crazy just the way that we live

[Chorus]
F                      C
Between a laugh and a tear
Am                              G
Smile in the mirror as you walk by
F                      C
Between a laugh and a tear
Am
And that's as good as it can get for us
            G                    F
And there ain't no reason to stop tryin'

[Interlude]
Am C F C x2

[Verse]
F                                  C
When this cardboard town can no longer amuse you
Am                                        G
You see through everything and nothin' seems worthwhile
F                           C
And hypocrite used to be such a big word to you
Am                                G
And it don't seem to mean anything to you now
F                          C
Just try to live each and every precious moment
Am                                 G
Don't be discouraged by the future forget the past
F                          C
That's old advise but it'll be good to you
Am                        G
I know there's a balance see it when I swing past

[Chorus]
F                      C
Between a laugh and a tear
Am                      G
Smile in the mirror as you walk by
F                       C
Between a laugh and a tear
Am
And that's as good as it can get for us
              G                     F
And there ain't no reason to stop tryin'
                       C
Between a laugh and a tear
Am                       G
Smile in the mirror as you walk by
F                      C
Between a laugh and a tear
Am                                   G
And that's as good as it can get for us
                                  F
And there ain't no reason to stop tryin'

[Interlude]
C Am G

[Outro]
F                             C
When paradise can no longer amuse you
