Joe Nichols  -  Cool To Be A Fool

By axehappy  -  axehappy at countrytabs.com


There's a lot more going on in this song than what I've 
tabbed here, but its not something I could tab out
for you...
Its something you've gotta feel....
Once you can play using the chords shown here, try and 
jazz it up a bit...you'll see what I mean ;o)

*************************************************************


C  G  C   C(add9) C
INTRO


G                               F#7
 Here I sit a nobody with no-one,
G                                  F#7                                   
 Bein' me ain't really all that fun.
G
 Leavin' her wasn't very smart,

Admittin' I was wrong wouldn't be so hard.


          C
If it was cool to be a fool,
           C7
I'd be the hippest guy around.
     F7
If a heartache made you famous,

I'd be known from town to town.
   C
If tears were made of pennies,
      D
And a cold beer brought her back.
   G                Ab7
My bank account and self esteem,
      G
Would both be in the black.
        C                         E7
If some Hollywood producer made a movie that was sad,
 F                          Ab
About some guy who lost the best thing he ever had...
     Dm7     Dm7(add9)  Dm7
Hey, I could be a       star,
G                       C(add9)  C
 If it was cool to be a fool.


G                                     F#7
 But we all know the way it really is,
    G                                               F#7              
You don't get recognized for doin' things like this.
    G
You spend a lotta time feelin' sorry for yourself,

It doesn't really mean that much to anybody else.



          C
If it was cool to be a fool,
           C7
I'd be the hippest guy around.
     F7
If a heartache made you famous,

I'd be known from town to town.
   C
If tears were made of pennies,
      D
And a cold beer brought her back.
   G                Ab7
My bank account and self esteem,
      G
Would both be in the black.
        C                         E7
If some Hollywood producer made a movie that was sad,
 F                          Ab
About some guy who lost the best thing he ever had...
     Dm7     Dm7(add9)  Dm7
Hey, I could be a       star,
G                       C7
 If it was cool to be a fool.
