Blonde In The Bleachers  Joni Mitchell

The [Am/D]blonde in the bleachers, she [Am7]flips her hair for you,
A-[Fmaj7]bove  the loudspeakers you [Dmaj7/G]start   to [G]fall.  [Dmaj7/G]          [G]

She [Bm]follows you [F#m/B]home,  but you [A]miss livin’ a-[E/A]lone
You can [F#m7]still hear sweet mysteries [Bm7]    cal-[E]ling [Esus4]you.
The [C]bands and the roadies, [D/C]lo- vin’ ‘em and [C]lea- vin’ ‘em
It’s  [Emaj7]      pleasure to [E6sus4]try    ‘em, it’s [Cmaj7/F]        trouble to [F]keep ‘em.    [A/D]

‘Cause it seems [Am]   like you’ve [Em7sus2]got- - -ta give [A]up
Such a [Em7sus2]piece   of your [Am7]soul when you [Em]give up the [F#m]chase.
Feeling it hot [Dsus2]      and [D]cold, you’re in rock [Bm]‘n’ roll,
Esus4 A E/A – A – E/A - A
It’s the na- - ture of the race.

[Bm/A]      [A]  It’s the [Dsus2]un- - known [D]child, so sweet and [Bm]wild,
Esus4 A E/A – A – E/A - A
It’s youth, it’s too good to waste.

E/A – Am/D – Am7 – Fmaj7
Dmaj7/G – G – Dmaj7/G – G – Cmaj7/F – F

[Fmaj7]        She [D]tapes her re-[Bm7]grets to the [Bm7/E]mi- - crophone [A]stand  [E/A]

[A]        She says, “You [Dsus2]can’t hold the [Bm7]hand of a
[Bm7/E]rock  ‘n’ roll [A]man ve-[E/A]ry   [A]long,
Or [Dsus2]count on your [Bm7]plans with a
[Bm7/E]rock  ‘n’ roll [A]man ve-[E/A]ry   [A]long,
Com-[Dsus2]pete  with the [Bm7]fans for your
[Bm7/E]rock  ‘n’ roll [A]man  for ve-[E/A]ry   [A]long,
The [Dsus2]girls and the [Bm7]bands and the [Bm7/E]rock  ‘n’ roll  [A]    [Am7]man.”
Cmaj7/F – Fmaj7
[A7](saxophone interlude)
End on A7
