                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...)

Cadd2add4   Bb/Eb

Intro :

Eb5  F5  Gm9

Eb5  F5  F/C

Cadd2  Cadd2add4  Cadd2  Cadd2add4

Verse :

F/C                 Cadd2      Cadd2add4
Old Beale street is coming down

Sweetie's snack bar  boarded up know

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

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 

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

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

Furry sings the blues

Laughing, smoking, drinking he'll play for you

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 !
