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

CThe wind is in from Africa
GLast night I couldn't sleep
F COh, you know it sure is hard to leave here Carey
GBut it's really not my home
C GMy fingernails are filthy, I got beach tar on my feet
F C GAnd I miss my clean white linen and my fancy French cologne
G COh Carey get out your cane
C GAnd I'll put on some silver
F G COh you're a mean old Daddy, but I like you
C GCome on down to the Mermaid Cafe and I will buy you a bottle of wine
F C GAnd we'll laugh and toast to nothing and smash our empty glasses down
CLet's have a round for these freaks and these soldiers
GA round for these friends of mine
F CLet's have another round for the bright red devil
GWho keeps me in this tourist town
CCome on, Carey, get out your cane
C GI'll put on some silver
F G COh you're a mean old Daddy, but I like you
CMaybe I'll go to Amsterdam
GOr maybe I'll go to Rome
F C GAnd rent me a grand piano and put some flowers 'round my room
C But let's not talk about fare-thee-welIs now
GThe night is a starry dome.
F CAnd they're playin' that scratchy rock and roll
GBeneath the Matalla Moon
G CCome on, Carey, get out your cane
C GAnd I'll put on some silver
F G CYou're a mean old Daddy, but I like you
CThe wind is in from Africa
GLast night I couldn't sleep
F COh, 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
GSince I was scramblin' down in the street
F CNow they got me used to that clean white linen
GAnd that fancy French cologne
G COh Carey, get out your cane
C GI'll put on my finest silver
F G We'll go to the Mermaid Cafe
C Have fun tonight
F G CI said, Oh, you're a mean old Daddy, but you're out of sight
Love this song! From Joni Mitchell's album 'Blue'
