Joni Mitchell – The Pirate Of Penance chords

Bbm CmThe pirate anchored on a Wednesday
Bbm DAnd why he came to port I wonder
BbmTo see a lady so my friends say
Dm7She dances for the sailors
AbmIn a smoky cabaret bar underground
BbDown in a cellar in a harbour town
Bbm CmI know he told her love was treasure
Bbm DAnd they would reap the fullest bounty
BbmHe only comes to port for pleasure
Dm7So when the winds of morning
AbmBlew the curtains in she woke and found he'd gone
BbI saw his sails unfurling Thursday dawn
BbmThe pirate he will sink you with a kiss
He'll steal your heart and sail away THE DANCER: Saturday early we met in the cove near the forest PENANCE:
GbHe'll leave you drowning in the flotsam Of a broken promise in the bay
THE DANCER: (Dancing we wakened the dawn and the birds into chorus) PENANCE:
GbmHe came again to see her
Yes I think they told me it was Saturday THE DANCER: (Ask Penance Crane she was out in her garden she saw us) PENANCE:
BbI was at sea then
I didn't see them
Bbm CmI don't believe what you are saying
Bbm DIt isn't true I hardly knew him
BbmIs this some game that you are playing
Dm7Go ask the dancer she's the one who saw him last
AbmThe one who drew him here
BbHe hasn't come to me since spring last year
BbmThere was a time when he would
Bring me silks and sandalwood and Persian lace THE DANCER: (Then came another "goodbye" and another "Please don't go") PENANCE:
GbAnd he would hold me close
And tell my sailing stories by the fireplace THE DANCER: (All night I dance and all day I keep watch with my sorrow) PENANCE:
GbmI was at sea I tell you I was
Nowhere near the mentioned murder place THE DANCER: (Searching for sails that don't come And I guess but I don't know) PENANCE:
BbGo ask the dancer
She knows the answer THE DANCER: I don't know PENANCE:
DShe knows the answer
THE DANCER: I don't know PENANCE: She knows the answer THE DANCER: I don't know
