People's Parties  Joni Mitchell

[Bm7]    [Em7]    [D/A]    [A7sus]      [D/A]    [A7sus]      [G]  [F]  [D]  

[D]   [Dmaj9]All the people [D]at this par[G]ty, They've got a lot of style
[D]   They've got stamps of many [C]countries, They've got passport smiles
Some are [Bm7]friendly, some are cutting, some are [Em7]watching it from the wings
Some are [D/A]standing in the [A7sus]cen-  [D]ter Giving [A7sus]to get something

[Dmaj9]  Photo Beauty gets atte[G]ntion, Then her eye paint's running [D]down
[D]  She's got a rose in her [C]teeth and a lampshade crown
[Bm7]One minute she's so happy Then she's [Em7]crying on someone's knee, saying,
[D/A]"Laughing and [A7sus]crying, [D]you know, it's [A7sus]the same release."
I [Dmaj9]told you when I met you I was [G]crazy. Cry for us all[D], Beauty
Cry for Eddie in the [C]corner thinking he's nobody
And [Bm7]Jack behind his joker, and stone-cold [Em7]Grace behind her fan, and
[D/A]Me in my frightened [A7sus]si-   [D]lence, thinking [A7sus]I don't understand
I [Dmaj9]feel like I'm sleep[G]ing, Can you wake [D]me?
You seem to have a [C]broader sensibility
I'm just [Bm7]living on nerves and feelings with a [Em7]weak and a lazy mind
And [D/A]coming to people's [A7sus]par-  [D/A]ties fumbl-[A7sus]ing deaf dumb and blind
I [Dmaj9]wish I had more sense of hum[G]or sometimes
[G]  Keeping the sa[F]d-[D]ness at bay
[D]Throwing the lightness [C]on these things
Laughing it [Bm7]all aw[Em7]ay[D/A] [A7sus] [D/A] [A7sus]
Laughing it [Bm7]all aw[Em7]ay[D/A] [A7sus] [D/A] [A7sus]
Laughing it [Bm7]all aw[Em7]ay[D/A] [A7sus] [D/A] [A7sus]
[G]Laughing it [F]all a-[D]way
