Let The Wind Carry Me  Joni Mitchell

[Em]Papa’s faith is [D/E]people,
[D]Mama, she believes [C]  in [Em]cleanin’.
[Gm7/D]       Papa’s [F/D]faith is in peo[Gm7/D]- - -ple,
  [F/D]                [Gm7/D]       [F/D]             [Gm7/D]            [F/D]          
Ma- -ma, she’s al- - - - - -ways clea- - - -nin’.

Papa [F]brought home the sugar,
Mama [Eb]taught me the dee[Gm7/D]- - -per meanin’.

F/D – Gm7/D – Gsus2 – G – Cmaj7

[Gm7/D]She   don’t like my [F/D]kick-pleat skirt,
Eb Gm7/D F/D – Gm7/D – F/D
She don’t like my eyelids pain-ted green
[Em7]She don’t like me stayin’ [D/E]up  late in my [Em7]high-heeled shoes, [D/E]
Livin’ for that [Em7]rock-n’-roll [D/E]    dancin’ [Em7]scene.
[D/E]    Papa says, “[D]Leave the girl alone mother,
[C]  She’s lookin’ like a Mo-[Em] - vie Queen.”

[Gm7/D]Mama  thinks she [F/D]spoilt me.
Eb Gm7/D F/D – Gm7/D – F/D
Papa knows somehow he set me free
[Em7]Mama thinks she spoilt me [D/E]rotten
She [Em7]blames herself [D/E]
But [Em7]Papa, he [D/E]    blesses [Em7]me.
[D/E]    It’s a [D]rough road to travel, Mama
[C]Let go now, it’s [Em]   always called for me.

Some-[Em]times I get that [D/E]feeling
And I [D]want to settle and raised a [C] child up [Em]with somebody.
[Gm7/D]       I [F/D]get that strong long[Gm7/D]- - -ing
And I [F/D]want to [Gm7/D]set- tle and [F/D]raise a child[Gm7/D]     up with som[F/D]ebody
But it [F]passes like the summer
I’m a [Eb]wild seed again, let the wind carry me.

Gm7/D – F/D – Gm7/D – Gsus2 – G – Cmaj7
