(Chords in lower case are implied by bass and keyboards)
Intro: (assorted fairground-type noises)
a g/a d/a a g/a
Hello you fool I love you, c’mon join the joyride
[A]
Hit the road out of nowhere, had to jump in my car
Be a rider in the love game, following the stars
[D] Don’t need no book of wisdom[Bm], I get no money-talk at [A]all
She has a train going downtown, she’s got a club on the moon
And she’s telling all her secrets in a wonderful balloon
[D] She’s the heart of the funfair[Bm], she got me whistling her private [A]tune
And it [E]all be[D]gins where it [A]ends
And she’s [E]all my, my [D]magic friend…
She says “Hel[A]lo you [G]fool I [D]love you[A], c’mon join the joyride,[D]
Join the [A]joyride”
She’s a flower – I can paint her, she’s a child of the sun
We’re a part of this together, could never turn around and run
Don’t need no fortune teller to know where my lucky love belongs, oh no.
Cause it all begins again when it ends
And we’re all magic friends…
She says “Hello you fool I love you, c’mon join the joyride,
Join the joyride”
She says “Hello you fool I love you, c’mon join the joyride,
Be a joyrider”
(Solo): D G D G A D G D G A
[G] [D] [A] [B5] [C5] [C#5]
I’ll [D5]take you [D6]on a [D5]sky[D6]ride, [D5]feeling [D6]like you’re [D5]spell[D6]bound
[A5]Sunshine [A6]is a [A5]la-[A6]dy – [A5]rocks you like a baby
She says “Hello you fool I love you, c’mon join the joyride,
Join the joyride”
(Next line is sung without guitar)
Hello you fool I love you, c’mon join the joyride, join the joyride
Hello, hello you fool I love you,
C’mon, c’mon join the joyride, be a joyrider
Roxette!
(Out-solo): D G D G A
(Whistling)
…………
The main guitar for the song is a heavily distorted electric – hence you’ve got
to play the song with lots of palm muting and avoid sloppiness or else it’s
going to sound like a mess.
The riff going into the first verse is:

The fills from the first two verses are approximated in the next verse by synth
and acoustic twelve string guitar. The electric comes back in on “Don’t need no
fortune teller”.
The first 6 bars of the solo are doubled an octave above by synth. There’s 4
things you could do about this:
a) Forget about it
b) Play it an octave up. This will be played something like this:
[+] [+]


-10p9-------------
--------10--------
----------11--12--
------------------
------------------
------------------

c) Get a friend to play it an octave up as above whilst you play the lower bit
d) Use an octave pedal or a pitch shifter set at an octave above. Don’t forget
to turn it off after 6 bars, though
