Joni Mitchell
[Intro]

D Esus4 E A D/A A D/A

[Verse]

D        Esus4
  My old man
       E        A      D/A A D/A
He's a singer in the park
D                       Esus4
  He's a walker in the rain
       E             Am7
He's a dancer in the dark
D                         A7
We don't need no piece of paper
              E7
From the city hall
           Emmaj7    D/E
Keeping us tied and true
D    A   Esus4
  My old man
D/E             A  D/A A D/A
Keeping away my blues

[Verse]

D                         Esus4
  He's my sunshine in the morning
        E   A            D/A        A  D/A
He's my fireworks at the end of the day
D                          Esus4
  He's the warmest chord I ever heard
           Am7
Play that warm chord, play and stay baby
D                         A7
We don't need no piece of paper
              E7
From the city hall
           Emmaj7   D/E
Keeping us tied and true
D    A   Esus4
  My old man
D/E             A  D/A A D/A
Keeping away my blues

[C-Part]

              G#m7
But when he's gone
            G#m9         F#11#   F#
Me and them lonesome blues collide
    C#maj7
The bed's too big
    C#m7             B   Asus4  D  E  A  D/A
The frying pan's too wide

[Verse]

D                Esus4
  Then he comes home
       E        A D/A            A  D/A
And he takes me in his loving arms
D                          Esus4
   And he tells me all his troubles
E            Am7
  And he tells me all my charms
D                         A7
We don't need no piece of paper
              E7
From the city hall
           Emmaj7   D/E
Keeping us tied and true
D    A   Esus4
  My old man
D/E             A  D/A A D/A
Keeping away my blues

[C-Part]

              G#m7
But when he's gone
            G#m9         F#11#   F#
Me and them lonesome blues collide
    C#maj7
The bed's too big
    C#m7             B   Asus4  D  E  A  D/A
The frying pan's too wide

[Verse]

D        Esus4
  My old man
       E        A      D/A A D/A
He's a singer in the park
D                       Esus4
  He's a walker in the rain
       E  Am7
He's a dancer in the dark
D                         A7
We don't need no piece of paper
              E7

           Emmaj7   D/E
Keeping us tied and true
D    A   Esus4
  My old man
D/E             A       D/A A D/A
Keeping away my lonesome blues
