Joni Mitchell - Both Sides Now Chords

[intro] x2
D  G  D  G

[verse]
D        Em       G     D
Bows and flows of angel hair
              F#m     G      D
and ice cream castles in the air
            G            Em
And feather canyons everywhere,
     G                     A
I've looked at clouds that way.
    D        Em   G         D
But now they only block the sun,
              F#m     G    D
they rain and snow on everyone.
        G        Em
So many things I would have done
    G                A
but clouds got in my way.

[refrain]
     D         Em          G          D
I've looked at clouds from both sides now,
     G      D         G         D
From up and down, and still somehow
     F#m      G       D
It's clouds illusions I recall.
  G                 A  Asus4 A    D
I really don't know clouds     at all.

D G D G  2x

[verse]
D         Em        G      D
Moons and Junes and Ferris wheels,
          F#m     G       D
the dizzy dancing way you feel
         G     Em
As every fairy tale comes real;
     G                   A
I've looked at love that way.
    D        Em    G      D
But now it's just another show,
              F#m      G        D
you leave 'em laughing when you go
           G           Em
And if you care, don't let them know,
      G              A
don't give yourself away.

[refrain]
     D         Em        G          D
I've looked at love from both sides now,
     G        D         G         D
From give and take, and still somehow
     F#m      G       D
It's love's illusions I recall.
  G                 A Asus4 A    D
I really don't know love      at all.

D G D G  2x

[verse]
D         Em        G       D
Tears and fears and feeling proud to say
   F#m       G         D
"I love you" right out loud,
           G           Em
Dreams and schemes and circus crowds,
     G                   A
I've looked at life that way.
    D       Em          G      D
But now old friends are acting strange,
                 F#m         G
they shake their heads, they say
     D
I've changed.
                G        Em
But something's lost but something's gained
   G            A
in living every day.

[refrain]
     D         Em        G          D
I've looked at life from both sides now,
     G       D         G         D
From win and lose, and still somehow
     F#m      G       D
It's life's illusions I recall.
  G                 A Asus4 A    D
I really don't know life      at all.

[instrumental] x2
D  G  D  G

     D         Em        G          D
I've looked at life from both sides now,
     G       D         G         D
From win and lose, and still somehow
     F#m      G       D
It's life's illusions I recall.
  G                 A Asus4 A    D
I really don't know life      at all.
