The Same Situation  Joni Mitchell

A-[C]gain and again the same sit-u-[G]a-tion
For [D/E]so man[E]-y [Am]years
[C]Teth-ered to a ringing [G]tel-e-phone
In a [D/E]room fu[E]ll of [Am]mir-rors

A [G]pret-ty girl in your [D]bath-room [E/D]
[F]Check-ing out her [D/G]sex appeal
I [C]asked myself when you said you [G]loved me
“Do you [D/E]think this [E]can be [Am]real?”
Still I[B/A]   sent up my p[E/B]rayer
Wondering [D/E]where it had to [A]go
With heaven full [E/A]of  [D/A]as- tro-[A]nauts
And the [F#m7]Lord on dea[D/G]th row

While the [A/B]mil-li-ons of his lost [Bm7]and [A]lonely ones
Call [D/A]out and [D/G]cla-mor to be found
Caught in the [C]strug-gle for higher po-[G]si-tions
And their search for [D/E]love
[E]It sticks a-[Am]roun[G/A]d
You’ve had [C]lots of lovely wo-[G]men
Now you [D/E]turn your gaze[E] to [Am]me
[C]Weigh-ing the beauty and the [G]im-perfection
To [D/E]see if I’[E]m wor-[Am]thy
Like the [G]church, like a cop, like a [D]mo-ther
[E/D]   You [F]want me to be [D/G]truth-ful
Sometimes you [C]turn it on me like a wea-[G]pon, though
And I [D/E]need your [E]ap-pro-[Am]val
Still I[B/A] sent up my p[E/B]rayer
Wondering [D/E]who’s there to [A]hear
I said, “Send me[E/A]   some-[D/A]bo- d[A]y
Who’s [F#m7]strong and [D/G]some-what sincere
With the [A/B]mil-lions of the lost [Bm7]and [A]lone-ly ones
[D/A]   I [D/G]called out to be released
Caught in my [C]strug-gle for higher a-[G]chieve-ments
And my search for [D/E]love
[E]It don’t seem to [Am]ceas[G/A]e    [Amsus2]
