Court And Spark

Joni Mitchell

 EDEGEm7
 Em7
 Love came to my door
 A7sus4
With a sleeping roll
 D/A
And a madman's soul
 B7sus4
He thought for sure I'd seen him
 Gmaj9A
 Dancing up a river in the dark
 CGA/E
Looking for a woman to court and spark

 A/EED/EEA/EED/EEA/EED/EA/EED/EE
 Em7
He was playing on the sidewalk
 A7sus4
For passing change
 D/A
When something strange happened
 B7sus4
Glory train passed through him
 Gmaj9
So he buried the coins he made
 A
In People's Park
 CGA/E
And went looking for a woman to court and spark

 A/EED/EEA/EED/EEA/EED/EA/EED/EE
 CG
It seemed like he read my mind
 D
He saw me mistrusting him
 A
And still acting kind
 CG
He saw how I worried sometimes
 A/D
I worry sometimes

A/D(6x) A/E E D/E A/E E D/E A/E E D/E A/E E D/E E

 Em7
 "All the guilty people," he said
 A7sus4
They've all seen the stain
 D/A
On their daily bread
 B7sus4Bm
On their christian names     
 Gmaj7
I cleared myself
 A
I sacrificed my blues
 CG
And you could complete me 
 A/E
I'd complete you

 A/EED/EEA/EED/EEA/EED/EA/EED/EE
 Em7
His eyes were the colour of the sand
 A7sus4
 And the sea
 D/A
And the more he talked to me, you know
 B9sus4
The more he reached me
 Gmaj9A
But I couldn't let go of L.A.
 CGA/D
City of the fallen angels

A/E E D/E (6x) End on E
