CIRCLE GAME

Joni Mitchell

 GCG
Yesterday a  child came out to wonder,
 CD7
Caught a dragonfly inside a jar.
 GCBm
Fearful when the sky is full of thunder,
 CGAm7G
And teearful at the falling  of a star.

Chorus:
 GAm7G
  And the seasons, they go round and round,
 Am7G
And the painted poinies go up and down.
 CG
  Were captive on the carousel of time.
 CBm
  We cant return, we can only look behind
 C
From where we came,
 GAm7GCG
And go round and round and round in the circle game.   

 CG
Then the child moved ten times round the seasons,
 CD7
Skated over ten clear frozen streams.
 GC
 Words like, when youre older,
 Bm
Must appease him,
 CGAm7G
And promises of someday mke his dreams.

 CG
Sixteen springs and sixteen summers gone now,
 CD7
Cartwheels turn to car wheels through the town.
 GC
And they tell him take your time,
 Bm
It wont be long now,
 CAm7G
Til you drag your feet to slow the circle down.

 GCG
  So the years spin by and now the boy is twenty,
 CD7
Though his dreams have lost some grandeur coming true.
 GCBm
Therell be new dreams, maybe better dreams, and plenty,
 CGAm7G
Before the last revolving year is through.
 D7G
