This is a beautiful song by Joni Mitchell that sounds great on acoustic. This is a 
easy tab with great lyrics and a very pretty tune. Have fun!

A           D                 A
Yesterday a child came out to wonder
A              D            E
Caught a dragonfly inside a jar
A                D               F#m
Fearful when the sky was full of thunder
     D              A      E    A
And tearful at the falling of a star

A                    D                    A
Then the child moved ten times 'round the seasons
A           D                E
Skated over ten clear frozen streams
A                        D            F#m
Words like, when you're older, must appease him
    D           A       E        A
And promises of someday make his dreams

A                         E          A
And the seasons, they go 'round and 'round
A                         E      A
And the painted ponies go up and down
       D                        A
We're captured on a carousel of time
D                                 F#m                  D
We can't return, we can only look behind from where we came
D       F#m                   D            E      A
And go 'round and 'round and 'round in the circle game

A                   D                  A
Sixteen springs and sixteen summers gone now
A                   D                     E
Cartwheels turn to car wheels through the town
A                            D                F#m
And they tell him, take your time it won't be long now
          D                 A        E       A
'Till you drag your feet to slow the circles down

A                     D              A
So the years spin by and now the boy is twenty
A                                 D              E
Though his dreams have lost some grandeur coming true
A                             D                 F#m
There'll be new dreams, maybe better dreams and plenty
    D             A       E       A
Before the last revolving year is through
