                Furry Sings The Blues  -  Joni Mitchell
                ----------------------------------------------


                          from the album 'Hejira'



You only need to know about 7 or 8 shapes to play this, so I'll
start of by giving the shapes, then I'll write the chord names above
the words so you know where the changes come.


Tuning (low to high) :  C G D F Bb D


(For the shapes below I'll write 'B' for Bb, for obvious reasons...)

Intro :

Cadd2  Cadd2add4  Cadd2  Cadd2add4


Verse :
--------

F/C                 Cadd2      Cadd2add4
Old Beale street is coming down

Bb/Eb
Sweetie's snack bar  boarded up know

   Gm9
And there goes the tailor, and the shine boy's gone

Gm9
Faded out with rag time blues

F/C             Cadd2
Handy's cast in bronze

        Cadd2add4             Bb/Eb
And he's standing in a little park

                                       Gm9
with his trumpet in his hand like he's listening back


to the good old days, and the kick of high-heeled shoes

            Cadd2
Furry sings the blues

                              Bb/Eb
Laughing, smoking, drinking he'll play for you

                 Gm9
It's mostly muttering now, and side show spiel

Gm9                                             F/C  Cadd2
But there was one song he played I could really feel

Link to next verse :
--------------------

Eb5  F5  Gm9

Eb5  F5


Then on to verse 2


Structure is the same all the way through.

Song ends with repeated pattern of Cadd2 and Cadd2add4


Enjoy !
