Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Electricity  Joni Mitchell

[G1]The [G7sus4]mi- - nus is [Am7]love-less,
He [G2]talks to the[G7sus4]      land
[G1]And the leaves[Am7]   fall
And the pond over-ices.[G7sus4]

She [G1]don’t know the [Am7]sys-tem, plus
G6sus2,4 Gmaj7
She don’t un- - -derstand
She’s got [G2]all the wrong [G7sus4]fu- - ses [G1]and [Am7]spli-ces
She’s [G2]not gonna [G7sus4]fix   it up [G1]   [Am7]    too easy.

[G1]The [G7sus4]mask- ing tape [Am7]tan-gles,
It’s [G2]stic-ky and blac[G7sus4]k.   And
[G1]The [Am7]cop-per
Proud headed Queen[G7sus4]      Lizzie
Con-[G1]ducts little [Am7]char-ges
G6sus2,4 Gmaj7
That don’t get charged back.”

          [G]          [G7sus4]        [G]         [Am7]                           
Well, the technical man- - -u- -al’s bus-y

She’s [G]not gonna [G7sus4]fix   it up[G1]  too[Am7]   easy.

And she [G]holds out her [G7sus4]flash- light
And [G1]she [Am7]shines it on me.
She [G2]wants me to [G7sus4]tell  her
[G1]What the [Am7]trouble might be.
Well, I’m [G1]learning
It’s [Am7]peaceful
G6sus2,4 Gmaj7
With a good dog and some trees,
Out of [G2]touch with the [G7sus4]break- down
[G1]Of this cen-[Am7]tury
They're [G2]not gonna [G7sus4]fix   it up [G1]
[Am7]    Too easy

G1 – G7sus4 – G1 – Am7 – G1
G2 – G1 – G7sus4 – G1
Am7 – G7sus4
G1 – Am7 – G6sus2,4 – Gmaj7
G2 – G7sus4 – G1 – Am7

We once loved - together
And we floodlit that time
Input – output – electricity
But the lines overloaded
And the sparks started flying
And the loose wires
Were lashing out at me
She's not gonna fix it up
Too easy
But she hold out her candle
And she shines it in
And she begs him to show her
How to fix it again
While the song that he sang her
To soothe her to sleep
Runs all through her circuits

[Am7]    Like a heartbeat
She's [G2]not gonna [G7sus4]fix   it up  [G1]    [Am7]
Too [F6/G]eas- -[G7] -y

ending: F6/G – G7 (repeat until fade)
