Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Peoples Parties  Joni Mitchell

[Dmaj9]All   the people [D]at this par-[G]ty
They’ve got a lot of style
[D]  They’ve got stamps of many coun-[C]tries
They’ve got passport smiles

Some are [Bm7]friend-ly, some are cutting
Some are [Em7]watch-ing it from the wings
Some are [D/A]stand-ing in the [A7sus4]cen- - [D/A]ter
Giving [A7sus4]to    get something

[Dmaj9]      Photo beauty gets at-ten-[G] tion
Then her eye paint’s running [D]down
She’s got a rose in her [C]teeth
And a lampshade crown

[Bm7]One minute she’s so happy
Then she’s [Em7]cry-ing on someone’s knee
Saying, “[D/A]Laugh-ing and cry-[A7sus4]ing
[D/A]You know, it’s [A7sus4]the   same release”

I [Dmaj9]told  you when I met you
I was [G]cra-zy
Cry for us al[D]l, beauty
Cry for Eddie in the [C]cor-ner
Thinking he’s nobody
And [Bm7]Jack behind his joker
And stone-cold [Em7]Grace behind her fan
And [D/A]me  in my frightened [A7sus4]si- - -[D/A]lence
Thinking [A7sus4]I     don’t understand

I [Dmaj9]feel  like I’m sleep-[G] ing
Can you wake [D]me?
You seem to have a [C]broad-er sensibility
I’m just [Bm7]liv-ing on nerves and feelings
With a [Em7]weak and a lazy mind
And [D/A]com-ing to people’s [A7sus4]par- - [D/A]ties
Fumb-[A7sus4]ling   deaf, dumb, and blind

I [Dmaj9]wish  I had more sense of humor
[G]  Keeping the sad-[F] -[D]ness at bay
[D]  Throwing the lightness [C]on these things
Laughing it al[Bm7]l  aw[Em7]ay   [D/A]     [A7sus4]        [D/A]     [A7sus4]

[G]Laugh-ing it [F]all[D] away
