Track Info

[Intro]
C G Am C/B C [Verse]
C G Well, I've been pacin'

Am C/B C
This room for forty hours
C G Crawlin' up the wall and

Am C/B C
Tryin' not to call
C G And I saw you walking in a

Am C/B C
Supermarket aisle
C G I didn't say a word 'cause

Am C/B C
You had the biggest smile
[Verse]

C G And I've been thinkin' of

Am C/B C
You in the morning times
C G You woke me up so soft that

Am C/B C
I forgot the world ain't kind

C G I pull you in and you

Am C/B C
Kissed me through a grin
C G And you say you missed me when

Am C/B C
You were busy sleepin'
[Chorus]
F C But what if I'd said happy instead
G Am Is the way that I reckon it should be
F And if you called

C
You'd say that you're okay
G And I'd be wishin'
Am
I was there
F C 'Cause you're happy instead
G Am Happy instead [Verse]

C G And I've been dreamin' of the

Am C/B C
Life we would have had
C G Am C/B C Happy at times but mostly just mad
C G Maybe it'd worked out,

Am C/B C
Maybe it'd be fine
C But every day

G
Your smile ain't showin


Am C/B C
seems a waste of time
[Chorus]

F C But what if I'd said happy instead
G Is the way that

Am
I reckon it should be
F And if you called
C
You'd say that you're okay
G And I'd be wishin'

Am
I was there
F C 'Cause you're happy instead
G Am Happy instead [Verse]

C G It's been ten years,

Am C/B C
I hadn't called you once
C G When you called last night and

Am C/B C
My child up and jumped
C G He asked who you were and

Am C/B C
You did the same
C G Handed me the phone and

Am C/B C
I couldn't recall your name
[Chorus]

F C But what if I'd said happy instead
G Is the way that I reckon

Am
I should be
F And if you called

C
You'd hear that I'm okay
G And you'd be wishin'
Am
You was there
F C 'Cause I'm happy instead
G Am Happy instead
F C Oh, I'm happy instead
G Am Happy instead [Outro]
F C What if I'd said happy instead
G Is the way that I reckon
Am
I should be
F And if you called

C
you'd hear that I'm okay
G And you'd be wishin'

Am
You was dead
F C G Am 'Cause I'm happy instead
