Don't Interrupt the Sorrow  Joni Mitchell

Don`t Interrupt The Sorrow - Joni Mitchell
 
 -------------------------------------------------

from the album 'Hissing of Summer Lawns'
tabbed by Howard Wright
H.Wright@uk.ac.cf.astro
The tuning for this is open G
low to high : DGDGBD
To get this, tune both E strings down to a D, then tune the A string
down to a G
For this song I'll just tab the intro because most of the song just
uses a few chord shapes so it's quicker to just give the shapes
instead of tabbing the whole thing. I've only given a rough idea of
the strumming pattern - so as usual : get tuned up, learn the shapes
then play along to the track and you shouldn't have any problems.

Try to keep the same feel for the verses - although I haven't written
out a lot of chord changes, she tends to play a lot of short open G chords
"between" changes, using hammer-ons and pull-offs. The line of TAB
above should give you the right idea - although the basic progression is
just : Csus4/G C/G G she puts in extra G chords on the open strings
to fill it out.
Use this idea throughout.
VERSE 1:
 
 ---------

[Csus4/G]Don't interrupt the [C/G]sorrow
[C/G] [G] Darn right
[Csus4/G]In flames our [C/G]prophet witches
Be p[G]olite
[Eb/Ab] A room full of glasse[F/Bb]s
[C]He says "Your notches liberati[D]on doll"
[Csus4/G] And he chains me with that [C/G]serpent to that Ethiopian [G]wall
VERSE 2:
 
 ---------

Anima rising
Queen of queens
Wash my guilt of eden
Wash and balance me
He says "Anima rising
uprising in me tonight"
She's a vengeful little goddess
With an ancient crown to fight
...and so on for the other verses.
After the 3rd (or maybe 4th) verse she repeats the INTRO tab above, then
on to another verse or two.
The song ends on a repeated open G chord.
