Tuning (low to high) D G D D A D  (D57075 in Joni Mitchell notation)

As string number 3 and 4 are tuned to the same D, The picking of the
chords is ambiguous, but as the third string has a totally different
tonal color beeing tuned that low, I think my picking is the same as Joni's.
I've indicated the fingering of the right hand for the first two bars:
Thumb(p)
fingers(i,m,a)

The three base notes in the third bar should be strummed with the thumb.
As Joni goes high up on her board (up to fret number 15), I labeled the
higher frets with letters because I did not want to disturb the time
vs distance in the TAB score:

frets   123456789  10 11 12 13 14 15

          all his seadreams   come  to me

City satins left at home  I will not need them
I believe him when he tells of loving me
Something truthfull in the sea your lies will find you
Leave behind your streets he said and come to me
Come down from the neon nights
Come down from the tourist sites
Run down till the rain delights you
You do not hide
Sunlight will renew your pride
Skin white by skin golden
Like a promise to be free
Dolphins playing in the sea
All his seadreams come to me

Seabird I have seen you fly above the pilings
I am smiling at your circles in the air
I will come and sit by you wile he lies sleeping
Fold your fleet wings I have brought some dreams to share
A dream that you love someone
A dream that the wars are done
A dream that you tell no one but the gray sea
They'll say that you're crazy
And a dream of a baby rm
Like a promise to be free
Children laughing out to sea
All his seadreams come to me
All his seadreams come to me
