The Dawntreader
===================

Artist: 	  Joni Mitchell
>From album        Song to a seagull (her debut album!)
Transcribed by:   Tino Meinen  tino@astro.uva.nl
Tuning (low to high) D G D D A D  (D57075 in Joni Mitchell notation)

As string number 3 and 4 are tuned to the same D, The picking of the
chords is ambiguous, but as the third string has a totally different
tonal color beeing tuned that low, I think my picking is the same as Joni's.
I've indicated the fingering of the right hand for the first two bars:
Thumb(p)
fingers(i,m,a)

The three base notes in the third bar should be strummed with the thumb.
As Joni goes high up on her board (up to fret number 15), I labeled the
higher frets with letters because I did not want to disturb the time
vs distance in the TAB score:

frets   123456789  10 11 12 13 14 15

City satins left at home I will not need them I believe him when he tells of loving me Something truthfull in the sea your lies will find you Leave behind your streets he said and come to me Come down from the neon nights Come down from the tourist sites Run down till the rain delights you You do not hide Sunlight will renew your pride Skin white by skin golden Like a promise to be free Dolphins playing in the sea All his seadreams come to me Seabird I have seen you fly above the pilings I am smiling at your circles in the air I will come and sit by you wile he lies sleeping Fold your fleet wings I have brought some dreams to share A dream that you love someone A dream that the wars are done A dream that you tell no one but the gray sea They'll say that you're crazy And a dream of a baby rm Like a promise to be free Children laughing out to sea All his seadreams come to me All his seadreams come to me
