Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Big Yellow Taxi  Joni Mitchell



They [G]paved paradise and put up a parking [D]lot
With a [G]pink hotel, a b[A]outique and a swingin' [D]hot spot
CHORUS:
[D]Don't it always [D7]seem to go
That you d[G]on't know what you've [D]got till it's gone
They p[G]aved paradise and [A]put up a parking [D]lot

They [G]took all the trees, put 'em in a tree mus[D]eum
And they [G]charged the people a [A]dollar and a half just to [D]see 'em

CHORUS:
[D]Don't it always [D7]seem to go
That you d[G]on't know what you've [D]got till it's gone
They p[G]aved paradise and [A]put up a parking [D]lot

Hey [G]farmer farmer, put away that D.D.[D]T. now
Give me [G]spots on my apples but [A]leave me the birds and the [D]bees
[D]please

CHORUS:
[D]Don't it always [A]seem to go
That you d[G]on't know what you've [D]got till it's gone
They p[G]aved paradise and [A]put up a parking [D]lot

[G]Late last night I heard the screen door [D]slam
And a [G]big yellow taxi [A]took away my old [D]man

CHORUS TWICE:
[D]Don't it always [A]seem to go
That you d[G]on't know what you've [D]got till it's gone
They p[G]aved paradise and [A]put up a parking [D]lot

[D]Yeah they [G]paved paradise, [A]put up a parking [D]lot
[D]I said they [G]paved paradise, [A]put up a parking [D]lot

Comment: to all those posting below. it sings a hell of a lot better with Capo on 3, not 4 BManJamz

Actually, I found it is one of the better tabs for this song. It's just in a different key. If you like, just transpose it +4 semitones.

If you put a Capo of the 4th fret it matches Joni's version
