Joni Mitchell - Circle Game Chords

Learn the song with the online tablature player

Yesterday a child came out to wonder

Caught a dragonfly inside a jar

Fearful when the sky was full of thunder

And tearful at the falling of a star

Then the child moved ten times 'round the seasons

Skated over ten clear frozen streams

Words like, when you're older, must appease him

And promises of someday make his dreams

Chorus

And the seasons, they go 'round and 'round

And the painted ponies go up and down

We're captured on a carousel of time

We can't return, we can only look behind from where we came

And go 'round and 'round and 'round in the circle game

Sixteen springs and sixteen summers gone now

Cartwheels turn to car wheels through the town

And they tell him, take your time it won't be long now

'Till you drag your feet to slow the circles down

PLAY CHORUS

So the years spin by and now the boy is twenty

Though his dreams have lost some grandeur coming true

There'll be new dreams, maybe better dreams and plenty

Before the last revolving year is through

PLAY CHORUS

PLAY LAST LINE OF CHORUS AGAIN
