Circle Game  Joni Mitchell

[A]Yesterday a [D]child came out to [A]wonder
[A]Caught a dragon[D]fly inside a [E]jar
[A]Fearful when the [D]sky was full of [F#m]thunder
And t[D]earful at the f[A]alling [E]of a [A]star

[A]And the seasons, they go '[E]round and '[A]round
[A]And the painted ponies go [E]up and [A]down
We're c[D]aptive on a carousel of [A]time
[D]We can't return, we can only look [F#m]behind from where we [D]came
[D]And go '[F#m]round and 'round and '[D]round in the [E]circle [A]game

[A]Then the child moved [D]ten times 'round the [A]seasons
[A]Skated over [D]ten clear frozen [E]streams
[A]Words like, when you're o[D]lder, must ap[F#m]pease him
And [D]promises of [A]someday [E]make up his [A]dreams


[A]Sixteen springs and [D]sixteen summers gon[A]e now
[A]Cartwheels turn to c[D]ar wheels through the [E]town
[A]And they tell him, take your [D]time it won't be [F#m]long now
'Till you [D]drag your feet just to [A]slow the [E]circles [A]down


[A]So the years spin by a[D]nd now the boy [A]is twenty
[A]Though his dreams have lost some g[D]randeur coming [E]true
[A]There'll be new dreams, maybe [D]better dreams and [F#m]plenty
Befo[D]re the last re[A]volving [E]year is [A]through
