If It Makes You Happy Chords
The key to getting this song to sound just like the original is to play a standard
G chord with fingers 1, 2 & 3 and then use finger 4 (index) to tap on and off fret 
1 string 2 then again fret 2 string 3 (verses only, not the chorus). Listen to the 
song to get the feel for the strum and the tap on/off timing. It'll come to you 
easily enough   enjoy!

G                                    G 
I've been long, a long way from here
G                                  
Put on a poncho, played for mosquitoes,
G                                C*
And drank 'til I was thirsty again

G                                                G 
We went searching through thrift store jungles
G                        
Found Geronimo's rifle, Marilyn's shampoo
G                               C*
And Benny Goodman's corset and fan
                        D      C                            D
Well, o.k. I made this up   I promised you I'd never give up


               Am       C                  G          D
If it makes you happy     it can't be that ba-aa-aa-ad
                  Am    C                               G 
If it makes you happy   then why the hell are you so sad?


You get down, real low down
You listen to Coltrane, derail your own train
Well who hasn't been there before?

I come round, around the hard way
Bring you comics in bed; scrape the mold off the bread,
And serve you French toast again
Well, o.k. I still get stoned  I'm not the kind of girl you'd take home

Chorus      

G                                  G 
We've been far, far away from here
G                        
Put on a poncho, played for mosquitoes,
G                       C*
And everywhere in between
                       D      C                                 D
Well, o.k. we get along    so what if right now everything's wrong?

Chorus & close


C* - this particular C chord is played similarly to the preceding G chord with 
your pinky on the string 1; G note (fret 3). When changing from the preceding G 
chord merely drop fingers 2 and 3 one string down
