Are You Happy Now? - Richard Shindell (Sparrow's Point)

i think this song is actually in the key of F, but i've seen him live
and i believe he uses a capo on the 3rd fret, which would use the chords
D G A Em, but i find it easier to put the capo on the first fret and play it
this way:
(of course if you have a better idea feel free to express it)

E A E A

E A
You took the toaster when you went
E
You never paid your half the rent
A
You took the spices from the rack
E
But you don't have to put 'em back
B
'Cause in your haste on Halloween
F#m
You left your camera on the bed
A
Where we played roles in black and white
F#m
You left a roll of black and white
B
I set the timer, thought of you
F#m
Put the lens up to my head
A
I took a photograph for you
E
What comes out gray is really red


B F#m A E
So are you... happy now?
B F#m A E
Are you..... happy now?
B F#m A E B F#m
Are you.... happy now?


E A
I smashed your pumpkin on the floor
E
The candle flickered at my feet
A
As goblins flew across the moon
E
The children peered into the room
B
A cowboy shivered on the porch
F#m
And Cinderella checked her watch
A
A hobo waited in the street
F#m
An angel whispered trick or treat
B
What was I supposed to do
F#m
But to sit there in the dark
A
I was amazed to think that you
E
Would take the candy with you too


B F#m A E
So are you... happy now?
B F#m A E
Are you..... happy now?
B F#m A E B F#m
Are you.... happy now?


E A
I've sat all night, and now it's dawn
E
And I cannot believe my eyes
A
There's garbage strewn across the lawn
E
Where we once stared up at the sky
B
And streams of paper fill the tree
F#m
That hovered over you and me
A
And shaving cream covers the car
F#m
That we picked up in Baltimore
B
And though I know it's hard to tell
F#m
I hope that what's-his-name treats you )well
A
I still maintain that he's a bum
E
But it's your money, have some fun


B F#m A E
So are you... happy now?
B F#m A E
Are you..... happy now?
B F#m A E B
Are you.... happy now?


F#m B
You always asked why I had not
F#m
Written you a verse or two
A
Since that's the one thing I regret
E
I dedicate this one to you


B F#m A E
So are you... happy now?
B F#m A E
Are you..... happy now?
B F#m A E B F#m E
Are you......... ?
