     HAPPY GIRL   Martina McBride

G          D            A      D 		
I used to live in a darkened room
G                D   A                D   
Had a face of stone and a heart of gloom
G        D          A        D  
Lost my hope, I was so far gone
G               D               A       D
Cryin' all my tears with the curtains drawn
   Bb                   F   
I didn't know until my soul broke free
Bb                              A
I've got these angels watching over me
G D   A        D          G    D  
Oooh watch me go I'm a happy girl
A           D               G       D                A    D
Everybody knows that the sweetest thing that you'll ever see
          G         D           A    D
In the whole wide world is a happy girl.

G           D         A     D
I used to hide in a party crowd 
        G     D      A             D    
Bottled up inside feeling so left out
G               D              A       D
Standing in a corner wearing concrete shoes 
           G     D             A      D  
With my frozen smile And my lighted fuse
Bb                         F
Now every time I start to feel like that
Bb                           A
I roll my heart out like a welcome mat    Go to chorus

G             Bm            G          Bm  
Laugh when I feel like it  Cry when I feel like it
G               Bm            G            A 
That's just how my life is  That's how it goes
G  D   A       D          G     D             A       D 
Oooh watch me go  I'm a happy girl  And I've come to know 
           G            D          A         D  
That the world won't change just cause I complain
         G     D           A    D
Let the axis twirl I'm a happy girl  go to chorus, then ending.

vamp on G D A D..................
Oh yeah, Oh yeah, I'm a happy girl
