Song title:      Both Sides, Now
Original Album:  Clouds (1969)

Words and Music by Joni Mitchell

NOTES:
Tuning is Open D (DADF#AD). In concert, JM capoes at the 5th fret. The
recording on "Clouds" sounds as if it's capoed at 4 but that might just be
how the recording came out. So, take your pick...

Chord names below are for Open D tuning with no capo. Capo 4 or 5 will mean
the chord names will change but the voicings are valid and are numbered
either from the nut (i.e. no capo) or the capo position. Timing is 4/4.


INTRO:

VERSE: But now it's just another show You leave 'em laughing when you go, And if you care, don't let them know; Don't give yourself away. CHORUS: I've looked at love from both sides now, From give and take, and still, somehow, It's love's illusions I recall; I really don't know love at all. VERSE: Tears and fears and feeling proud, To say, "I love you," right out loud, Dreams and schemes and circus crowds: I've looked at life that way. VERSE: But now old friends are acting strange. They shake their heads, they say, "I've changed." Well, something's lost, but something's gained In living every day. CHORUS: I've looked at life from both sides now, From win and lose, and still, somehow, It's life's illusions I recall; I really don't know life at all. CHORUS: I've looked at life from both sides now, From up and down, and still, somehow, It's life's illusions I recall; I really don't know life at all. OUTRO: [play out over INTRO figure] [end on D]
