Intro
[C]  [G7]  [C]  [C]

Verse 1:
If you should [C] ask any girl from the [F] parish a- [Dm] round
What [G7] pleases her most from her head to her [C] toes
She'll [C] say I'm not sure that it's [F] business of yours
But I [G7] do like to waltz with a [C] log driver

Chorus
[G7] For he goes [C] birling down, a- [F] down white water
[C] That's where the log driver [G7] learns to step lightly
It's [C] birling down, a- [F] down white water
A [C] log drivers waltz pleases [G7] girls com- [C] pletely

Verse 2:
When the [C] drive's nearly over, I [F] like to go [Dm] down
To [G7] see all the lads while they work on the [C] river
I [C] know that come evening they'll [F] be in the town
And we [G7] all want to waltz with a [C] log driver

Chorus
[G7] For he goes [C] birling down, a- [F] down white water
[C] That's where the log driver [G7] learns to step lightly
It's [C] birling down, a- [F] down white water
A [C] log drivers waltz pleases [G7] girls com- [C] pletely

Verse 3:
To [C] please both my parents, I've [F] had to give [Dm] way
And [G7] dance with the doctors and merchants and [C] lawyers
Their [C] manners are fine, but their [F] feet are of [Dm] clay
For there's [G7] none with the style of a [C] log driver

Chorus
[G7] For he goes [C] birling down, a- [F] down white water
[C] That's where the log driver [G7] learns to step lightly
It's [C] birling down, a- [F]down white water
A [C] log drivers waltz pleases [G7] girls com- [C] pletely

Verse 4:
[C] I've had my chances with [F] all sorts of [Dm] men
But [G7] none is so fine as my lad on the [C] river
So [C] when the drive's over, if he [F] asks me again
I [G7] think I will marry my [C] log driver

Chorus
[G7] For he goes [C] birling down, a- [F] down white water
[C] That's where the log driver [G7] learns to step lightly
It's [C] birling down, a- [F] down white water
A [C] log drivers waltz pleases [G7] girls com- [C] pletely

Circle Game - Key of A
Joni Mitchell (1968)


Fingerpicking in 4/4... for example

| [A] Yesterday a | [D] child came out to | [A] wonder | [A] |
| [A] Caught a dragon | [D] fly inside a | [E7] jar | [E7] |
| [A] Fearful when the | [D] sky was full of | [C#m7] thunder | [C#m7]
And | [D] tearful at the | [A] falling [C#m7↓] of [D↓] a | [A] star | [A] |

Chorus
And the | [A] seasons, they go | [C#m7↓] round [D↓] and [A] 'round
And the | [A] painted ponies go | [C#m7↓] up [D↓] and [A] down |
| [D] We're captive on a | carousel of | [A] time | [A] |
| [D] We can't return, we can | only look be- | [C#m7] hind from where we | [D] came
And go | [C#m7] 'round and 'round and | [D] 'round in the [E7] circle | [A] game | [A]

[A] Then the child moved [D] ten times 'round the [A] seasons [A]
[A] Skated over [D] ten clear frozen [E7] streams [E7]
[A] Words like, when you're [D] older, must [C#m7] appease him [C#m7]
And [D] promises of | [A] someday [C#m7↓] make [D↓] his | [A] dreams | [A]

Chorus
And the | [A] seasons, they go | [C#m7↓] round [D↓] and [A] 'round
And the | [A] painted ponies go | [C#m7↓] up [D↓] and [A] down |
| [D] We're captive on a | carousel of | [A] time | [A] |
| [D] We can't return, we can | only look be- | [C#m7] hind from where we | [D] came
And go | [C#m7] 'round and 'round and | [D] 'round in the [E7] circle | [A] game | [A]

[A] Sixteen springs and [D] sixteen summers gone [A] now [A]  
[A] Cartwheels turn to [D] car wheels through the [E7] town [E7]
And they [A] tell him, take your [D] time it won't be [C#m7] long now [C#m7]
'Till you [D] drag your feet to | [A] slow the [C#m7↓] cir- [D↓] -cles | [A] down | [A]

Chorus
And the | [A] seasons, they go | [C#m7↓] round [D↓] and [A] 'round
And the | [A] painted ponies go | [C#m7↓] up [D↓] and [A] down |
| [D] We're captive on a | carousel of | [A] time | [A] |
| [D] We can't return, we can | only look be- | [C#m7] hind from where we | [D] came
And go | [C#m7] 'round and 'round and | [D] 'round in the [E7] circle | [A] game | [A]

So the [A] years spin by and [D] now the boy is [A] twenty [A]
Though his [A] dreams have lost some [D] grandeur coming [E7] true [E7]
There'll be [A] new dreams, maybe [D] better dreams and [C#m7] plenty [C#m7]
Be- [D] fore the last re- | [A] volving [C#m7↓] year [D↓] is | [A] through | [A]

Chorus
And the | [A] seasons, they go | [C#m7↓] round [D↓] and [A] 'round
And the | [A] painted ponies go | [C#m7↓] up [D↓] and [A] down |
| [D] We're captive on a | carousel of | [A] time | [A] |
| [D] We can't return, we can | only look be- | [C#m7] hind from where we | [D] came
And go | [C#m7] 'round and 'round and | [D] 'round in the [E7] circle | [A] game | [A] |
And go | [C#m7] 'round and 'round and | [D] 'round in the circle | [A] game | [A] | [A↓]

Intro
| [C] | [Csus4] | [C] | [Csus4]

You spend all your time | [Dm] waiting for that | [F] second chance,
For a | [C] break that would [Csus4] make it | [G] okay
There's always some | [Dm] reason to feel | [F] not good enough,
And its | [C] hard at the [Csus4] end of the | [G] day
I need some | [Dm] distraction, Oh, a | [F] beautiful release. |
| [C] Memories [Csus4] seep from my | [G] veins
Let me be | [Dm] empty, oh, and | [F] weightless and maybe,
I'll | [C] find some [Csus4] peace | [G] tonight.

Chorus
In the | [C] arms [Csus4] of the | [C] angel, fly a- | [Em] way... from | here
From this | [F] dark, cold ho- | tel room, and the | [C] endlessness that you | [G] fear
You are | [C] pulled [Csus4] from the | [C] wreckage of your | [Em] silent.... reve- | rie
You're in the | [F] arms of the | angel, may you | [C] find- | [G] -ind, some comfort
| [C] here. | [Csus4] | [C] | [Csus4]

You're so tired of the   | [Dm] straight line, and   | [F] everywhere you turn,
There's   | [C] vultures and [Csus4] thieves at your   | [G] back.
the storm keeps on | [Dm] twisting, you keep on | [F] building the lies
That you | [C] make up for [Csus4] all that you | [G] lack.
Don't make no | [Dm] difference, | [F] escaping one last time
It's | [C] easier [Csus4] to | [G] believe...
In this sweet | [Dm] madness, oh, this | [F] glorious sadness,
That | [C] brings me [Csus4] to my | [G] knees.

Chorus
In the | [C] arms [Csus4] of the | [C] angel, fly a- | [Em] way... from | here
From this | [F] dark, cold ho- | tel room, and the | [C] endlessness that you | [G] fear
You are | [C] pulled [Csus4] from the | [C] wreckage of your | [Em] silent.... reve- | rie
You're in the | [F] arms of the | angel, may you | [C] find- | [G] -ind, some comfort
