For Free

Joni Mitchell

 GFmaj7Em
slept last night in a good hotel
 AmCFC
I went shopping today for jewels
 GFmaj7Em
The wind rushed around in the dirty town
 AmCFC
And the children let out from the schools
 AmG
I was standing on a noisy corner
 CGFEmD
 Waiting for the walking green
 GFmaj7Em
 Across the street he stood and he played real good
 AmCFCEmD
On his clairinet for free 

 GFmaj7Em
Now me I play for fortune
 AmCFC
And those velvet curtain calls
 GFmaj7Em
I've got a black limosuine and two gentlemen
 AmCFC
Escorting me to the halls
 AmG
And I'll play If you have the money
 CGFEmD
Or if you're a friend to me   
 GFmaj7Em
 But the one man band by the quick lunch stand
 AmCFCEmD
He was playing real good for free 

 GFmaj7Em
 Nobody stopped to hear him
 AmCFC
Though he played so sweet and high
 GFmaj7Em
And they knew he had never been on their T.V.
 AmCFC
So they passed his music by
 AmG
meant to go over and ask for a song
 CGFEmD
Mayby put on a harmon   
 GFmaj7Em
heard his refrain as the signal changed
 AmCFCEmD
He was playing real good for free
