"The Joker" – Steve Miller Band

Are you a picker and grinner? I know I am!

That’s why this laid back song is so relatable. And fun!

"The Joker" was released by the Steve Miller Band on their 1973 album The Joker.

The song topped the US Billboard Hot 100 in early 1974. And then topped the UK charts much later in September 1990 when it was featured in a Levi’s commercial (gotta love those jeans!)

It’s really just three chords. Easy, easy!!
