That Song About the Midway  Joni Mitchell

[E] [D] [A] [E]  
I [B]met you on a [A]midwa[G#m]y at a [A]fair last [E]year
And you [D]stood out like a [A]ru[G#m]by [A] in a black man's [E]ear
You were [D]playing on the [A]horses, [E]you were playing on the guitar [D]strings
You were [A]playing like a devil wearing[E] wings
Wearing [D]wings
You looked so grand wearing [A]wing[E]s
Do you [D]tape them to your shoulders just to[E] sing?
Can you [D]fly?
I heard you can! Can you [A]fly?[E]
Like an [D]eagle doin' your hunting from the [E]sky
[D] [A] [E]  
I [B]followed with the s[A]idesh[G#m]ows [A] to another[E] town
And I [B]found you in a tr[A]ail[G#m]er on the [A]camping[E] grounds
You were [D]betting on some[A] lover, you were [E]shaking up the [D]dice
And I [A]thought I saw you cheating once or[E] twice
Once or [D]twice
I heard your bid once or [A]twice[E]
Were you [D]wondering was the gamble worth the[E] price
Pack it [D]in
I heard you did! Pack it [A]in[E]
Was it [D]hard to fold a hand you knew could[E] win
[D] [A] [E]  
So [B]lately you've been [A]hid[G#m]ing, [A] it was somewhere in the[E] news
And [B]I'm still at these [A]ra[G#m]ces with [A]my ticket stubs and my[E] blues
And a [D]voice calls out the[A] numbers, and it [E]sometimes mentions [D]mine
And I [A]feel like I've been working ove[E]rtime
I've lost my fire over[A]tim[E]e
Always [D]playin' one more hand for one more[E] dime
Slowin' [D]down I'm gettin' tired!
Slowin' [A]dow[E]n
And I [D]envy you the valley that you've[E] found
'Cause I'm [D]midway down the midway
Slowin' [E]down, [D]down, [A]down,[E] dow[D]n [A] [E]
