“Big Yellow Taxi” – Counting Crows

This is my first tab, so constructive criticism is always nice. This piece is fairly 
and anyone (assuming you know how to pick up a guitar) should know how to play this. No 
if you can’t.
The rhythm is simple, and you'll catch onto it fast.

Cadd9                         D/F#                  G
They paved paradise and put up a parking lot
Cadd9                                                       G
With a pink hotel, a boutique, and a swingin' hot spot
G
Don't it always seem to go
             Cadd9
That you don't know what you got 'til it's gone
Cadd9                        D/F#                   G
They paved paradise and put up a parking lot

G
Ooooh, bop bop bop
Cadd9
Ooooh, bop bop bop

Cadd9                                                           G
They took all the trees, and put em in a tree museum
Cadd9                                                             G
And they charged the people a dollar and a half to see them
No, no, no


[Chorus]
G
Don't it always seem to go
             Cadd9
That you don't know what you got 'til it's gone
Cadd9                         D/F#                  G
They paved paradise and put up a parking lot

Ooooh, bop bop bop


[Verse]
       Cadd9                                  G
Hey farmer, farmer, put away your DDT
                            Cadd9
I don't care about spots on my apples
                                         G
Leave me the birds and the bees
Please


[Chorus]
G
Don't it always seem to go
             Cadd9
That you don't know what you got 'til it's gone
Cadd9                         D/F#                  G
They paved paradise and put up a parking lot
                      Cadd9                      D/F#                  G
Hey now, they paved paradise to put up a parking lot

Ooooh, bop bop bop

                                                G
Listen, late last night, I heard the screen door slam
        Cadd9           D/F#              G
And a big yellow taxi took my girl away


[Chorus]

            Cadd9                                          Cadd9
That you don't know what you got 'til it's gone
Cadd9                         D/F#                  G
They paved paradise and put up a parking lot
Why not?
