Joni Mitchell - CAREY
***CAPO 1ST***
CHORDS USED: C G F

C
The wind is in from Africa
G
Last night I couldn't sleep
                F               C
Oh, you know it sure is hard to leave here Carey
         G
But it's really not my home
C                          G
My fingernails are filthy, I got beach tar on my feet
      F                   C            G
And I miss my clean white linen and my fancy French cologne

G                     C
Oh Carey get out your cane
C                    G
And I'll put on some silver
F                    G                 C
Oh you're a mean old Daddy, but I like you 

C                                           G
Come on down to the Mermaid Cafe and I will buy you a bottle of wine
          F                  C                     G
And we'll laugh and toast to nothing and smash our empty glasses down
             C
Let's have a round for these freaks and these soldiers
  G
A round for these friends of mine
                   F                        C
Let's have another round for the bright red devil
              G
Who keeps me in this tourist town

                             C
Come on, Carey, get out your cane
C                G
I'll put on some silver
F                    G                 C
Oh you're a mean old Daddy, but I like you

C
Maybe I'll go to Amsterdam
    G
Or maybe I'll go to Rome
      F              C                   G
And rent me a grand piano and put some flowers 'round my room
      C                 
But let's not talk about fare-thee-welIs now
     G
The night is a starry dome.
              F                    C
And they're playin' that scratchy rock and roll
             G
Beneath the Matalla Moon

G                            C
Come on, Carey, get out your cane
C                    G
And I'll put on some silver
F                   G               C
You're a mean old Daddy, but I like you

C
The wind is in from Africa
      G
Last night I couldn't sleep
                 F                  C
Oh, you know it sure is hard to leave here
            G     
But, it's really not my home
C  
Maybe it's been too long a time
             G
Since I was scramblin' down in the street
                 F                       C
Now they got me used to that clean white linen
           G
And that fancy French cologne

G                      C
Oh Carey, get out your cane
C                    G
I'll put on my finest silver
      F                   G  
We'll go to the Mermaid Cafe
            C 
Have fun tonight
        F                      G                        C
I said, Oh, you're a mean old Daddy, but you're out of sight
