Birth of the Blues
Henderson, DeSylva, Brown (1926)


Intro (Loosely sung and played)
So they say some people long a- [Cm] go
Were searching for a different [D7] tune
[Bbdim7] One that they could [D7] croon
As [Bbdim7] only they can [G] [Bbdim7] [D7↓]

Verse (Start regular strumming)
They heard the | [G] breeze in the | [Am7] trees
Singing | [G] weird melo- | [C] dies
And they | [D7] made that | [Am7]... the [D7] start of the |
| [G] blues [Bbdim7↓] [Am7↓] | [G↓]

And from a | [G] jail came the | [Am7] wail
Of a | [G] down-hearted | [C] frail
And they | [D7] played that | [Am7]... as [D7] part of the |
| [G] blues [Bbdim7↓] [Am7↓] | [G]

Bridge
From a whippoor- | [B7] will way up | on a hill
They | [B7] took a new note | [B7] ...
Pushed it through a | [E7] horn till it was | worn
Into a | [A7] blue note   | [D7↓]  

Then they | [G] nursed it, re- | [Am7] hearsed it
| [G] Then they sent out that | [C] news
That the | [D7] Southland... | [Am7]... gave [D7] birth to the |
| [G] blues [Bbdim7] [Am7] | [G↓]

Instrumental
| [G]   | [Am7] | [G] | [C] |
| [D7] | [Am7][D7] | [B7] | [E7]

And then they | [C] nursed it re- | [Bbdim7] hearsed it
| [G] And then they sent out that | [E7] news
That the | [A7] Southland | [D7] gave birth to the |
| [G] blues!  [Bbdim7↓][Am7↓] | [G↓]

Circle Game - Key of A
Joni Mitchell (1968)


Fingerpicking in 4/4... for example
|----------M-------------|

  1  &  2  &  3  &  4  &


| [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] |

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

Reminds Me Of You
Van Morrison


Intro
| [G]   | [Bm]     | [C]   | [C]  
| [G]   | [D] [C] | [G]   | [G]  

I miss you [G] so much... [Bm] ...I can't [C] stand it, [C]  
Seems like my [G] heart... [Bm] ...is breaking in [D] two.   [D]  
My head says [G] no... [Bm] ... but my soul de- [C] mands it    [C]  
Everything I [G] do... [D]  ...re- [C] minds me of [G] you. [G]    

I miss you [G] so much... [Bm] ...in this house full of [C] shadows,     [C]  
While the rain keeps [G] pouring down... [Bm] ...my window, [D] too.   [D]  
When will the [G] pain... [Bm] ... recede to the [C] darkness,  [C]  
From whence it has [G] come?... [D] ...And I'm [C] feeling [G]so blue. [G]    

Bridge
Ain't goin' [C] down... [C] ...no more to the [Bm] well.... [Bm]    
Sometimes it [C] feels like [D] ...I'm going to [G] hell.   [G7]  
Sometimes I'm [C] knocking... [C] ...on your front [Bm] door,  [Bm]    
But I don't have [C] nothing... [D] ...to [C] sell, [G] no more.

Seems like the [G] spirit... [Bm] ...is pushing me [C] onwards,   [C]  
I'm able to [G] see... [Bm] ...where I tripped and went [D] wrong.    [D]  
I'll just have to [G] guess... [Bm] ...where my soul will find [C] comfort.  [C]  
And I miss you so [G] much... [D] ... when I'm [C] singing [G] my song.
