Circle Game

Joni Mitchell

 ADA
 Yesterday a child came out to wonder
 ADE
 Caught a dragonfly inside a jar
 ADF#m
 Fearful when the sky was full of thunder
 DAEA
And tearful at the falling of a star

CHORUS:
 AEA
 And the seasons, they go 'round and 'round
 AEA
 And the painted ponies go up and down
 DA
We're captive on a carousel of time
 DF#mD
 We can't return, we can only look behind from where we came
 DF#mDEA
 And go 'round and 'round and 'round in the circle game

 ADA
 Then the child moved ten times 'round the seasons
 ADE
 Skated over ten clear frozen streams
 ADF#m
 Words like, when you're older, must appease him
 DAEA
And promises of someday make up his dreams

CHORUS

 ADA
 Sixteen springs and sixteen summers gone now
 ADE
 Cartwheels turn to car wheels through the town
 ADF#m
 And they tell him, take your time it won't be long now
 DAEA
'Till you drag your feet just to slow the circles down

CHORUS

 ADA
 So the years spin by and now the boy is twenty
 ADE
 Though his dreams have lost some grandeur coming true
 ADF#m
 There'll be new dreams, maybe better dreams and plenty
 DAEA
Before the last revolving year is through

CHORUS
LAST LINE OF CHORUS AGAIN
