Joanne:Michael Nesmith (Formerly of The Monkees.) This was a great song that made the Top 40 in 1970. #1. (Original key) G C Am7 G F G Her name was Joanne and she lived in the meadow G7 C Am7 F G by a pond. C Am7 G F And she touched me for a moment with a look that G G7 C Am7 F G spoke to me of her sweet love. Dm Dm7 G G7 C Am7 Then the woman that she was drove her on with desperation, G Dm Dm7 G G7 C Am7 And I saw, as she went, a most hopeless situation, G F Fm7 G G7 for Joanne and the man, and the times that made C them both run. #2. G G7 C Am7 F Dm7 G She was only a girl..I know that well, but still G7 C Am7 F G I could not see..... Am7 C Am7 G F That the hold that she had was much stronger than Dm7 G C Am7 F G the love she felt for me. Dm Dm7 G7 C Am7 But stay..ing with her, and my little bit of wisdom, G Dm Dm7 G G7 C Am7 broke down her desires like a light through a prism, G F Fm7 G G7 into yellows and blues and a tune that I could C not have sung. #3. Am Am7 Dm Dm7 Though the essence is gone, I have no tears to G cry for her. F F7 G And my only thoughts of her are kind. REPEAT#1. ADD: G F Fm7 G G7 For Joanne and the man and the times that made C them both run.(x2)(Fade) A seventies smash from Kraziekhat.
