Chelsea Morning  Joni Mitchell


TUNING: D A D F# A D (capo 2nd fret) or E B E Ab B E
D7sus2 B7+9 D7sus2 B7+9 D7sus2 D (2 fr.)
[D7sus2]Woke up it was a Chelsea morning and the[D(2)] first thing that I[D7sus2] heard
Was a so[G]ng outside my w[Dmaj7]indow and the t[G6+9/D]raffic wrote the wo[D]rds
It came ri[G]nging up like Ch[Dmaj7]ristmas bells and r[G6+9/D]apping up like[Dsus4addE] pipes and drums
Oh,[D7sus4] won't you stay? We'll [Dsus4addB]put on the day
And we'll[Dsus4/F] wear it[Dsus4/E] till the n[D]ight comes
[D] [Dsus4addB] [D]  
Woke up it was a Chelsea morning and the first thing that I saw
Was the sun through yellow curtains and a rainbow on my wall
Red, green and gold to welcome you, crimson crystal bells to beckon
Oh, won't you stay? We'll put on the day
There's a sun show every second
[D] [Dsus4addB] [D] [D] [Bm7(addAb)/D] [D] 
[G]Now the curtain [Dmaj7]opens on a p[G6+9/D]ortrait of t[D]oday
And the s[G]treets are paved with p[Dmaj7]assers by
And p[G6+9/D]igeons fly and [Dmaj7]papers lie
[G]Waiting to blow[G6+9/D] away
D7sus2 B7+9 D7sus2 B7+9 D7sus2 D (2 fr.)
Woke up it was a Chelsea morning and the first thing that I knew
There was milk and toast and honey and a bowl of oranges too
And the light pured in like butterscotch and stuck to all my senses
Oh, won't you stay? we'll put on the day
And we'll talk in present tenses
[D] [Dsus4/BD] [D] [Bm7(addAb)/D] [D]  
W[G]hen the curtain[Dmaj7] closes and the r[G6+9/D]ainbow runs a[D]way
I will b[G]ring you incense[Dmaj7] owls at night
[G6+9/D]By candle light, by j[Dmaj7]ewel light if o[G]nly you will st[A]ay
Pretty[Dmaj7] baby w[G6+9/D]on't you
D7sus2 D (2 fr.)
Wake up, it's a Chelsea morning
