Trouble Child  Joni Mitchell


[Verse 1] 
[B/A]Up in a sterilised [A]room where they [F#m11]let you be (Intro) la-a-zy.
[D/A]Knowing your attitude's all [A]wrong and you got to [F#m11]change and that's not (Intro) ea-sy.
[Dmaj9]Dragon shining with all values [E9]known[E6]. (s[E9]hort [E6]riff)[E9]
[Dmaj9]Dazzling you keeping your from [E5]your [D5]own. [E5](shor[A5]t riff)
[D/A]Where is the lion in you to [A]defy him when you're this [F#m11]weak and this (Intro) spa-cy?
[Verse 2] 
[B/A]So what are you going to do about [A]it? You can't [F#m11]live life and you can't (Intro) leave it.
[D/A]Advice and religion - you can't [A]take it. You can't [F#m11]seem to (Intro) believe it.
[Dmaj9]The peacock is afraid to [E9]parad[E6]e. [E9] [E6] [E9]
You're [Dmaj9]under the thumb of the [E5]maid.[D5] [E5] [A5]
You [D/A]really can't give love in this [A]condition. Still you [F#m11]know how you (Intro) [E]need it
[Cborus 1] 
[E]They open and [A9]close [Emaj7/G#]you and they talk like they [F#m11]know you, [B4]they don't [E]know you.
They're friends and they're f[A]oes t[Emaj7/G#]oo. Trouble child
Bsus B4 E E9+7 arpeggio Intro
breaking like the waves at Malibu
[Verse 3] 
So [B/A]why does it come as such a [A]shock to know you [F#m11]really have (Intro) no one?
[D/A]Only a river of changing [A]faces [F#m11]looking for an (Intro) ocean
[Dmaj9]They trickle through your leaky [E9]plans[E6] [E9] [E6] [E9]
a[Dmaj9]nother dream over the d[E5]am [D5] [E5] [A5]
And you're [D/A]lying in some room feeling like your [A]right to be [F#m11]human is [E]going over too.
[Cborus 2] 
Well, some are going to [A9]knock [Emaj7/G#]you,
[Emaj7/G#]and some'll try an' [F#m11]clock [B4] [E] you.
You know it's really hard to [A9]talk sense to [Emaj7/G#]you, Trouble child
Bsus B4 E E9+7 arpeggio Intro
breaking like the waves at Malibu
