Both Sides Now - Joni Mitchell

[Verse 1]

 G                / C      G  /     
Bows and flows of angel hair
    /  G       Gmaj7 /    C     G  /
And ice cream castles in the air
   G                 C        
And feather canyons everywhere
     Am7                   D
I've looked at clouds that way
     G            / C         G /     
But now they only block the sun
  /G            Gmaj7/   C    G /
They rain and snow on everyone
 G                C        
So many things I would have done
Am7                  D
But clouds got in my way


         G                                   / C          G /
   I've looked at clouds,(love),(life) from both sides now
      / C                     G /                      C                   
   From up,(give),(win) and down,(take),(lose), and still some-how
        D                                     G
   It's clouds',(loves),(lifes) illusions I recall
      C                /G   C/          G    C/ G  C/ G C / G C /G C
   I really don't know clouds,(love),(life), at all

[Verse 2]

 G                   /C            G  /
Moons and Junes and ferris wheels
/ G        Gmaj7/   C       G  /
The dizzy, dancing way you feel
   G                 C
As every fairy tale comes real
   Am7                   D
I've looked at love that way
    G             / C        G /
But now it's just a-nother show
  G            Gmaj7 /  C        G /
You leave them laughing when you go
G                       C
And if you care don't let them know
Am7                   D
Don't give yourself a-way       (chorus "love")

[Verse 3]

  G                / C       G /
Tears and fears and feeling proud
/ G         Gmaj7    /C          G /
To say, "I love you" right out loud
G                       C
Dreams and schemes and circus crowds
    Am7                  D 
I've looked at life that way
 G                      /C        G  /
But now old friends are acting strange
/ G             Gmaj7       / C         G  /
They shake their heads, they say I've changed
  G                       C
But something's lost and something's gained
Am7             D
In living every day             (chorus "life")

Sorry, one G chord got missed on the chorus 2nd line. Should be as follows:

/ C G / C G /
From up and down, and still some-how

Some people may substitute a Bm for the Gmaj7, but there are several ways of playing the Gmaj7 that might be explored.

I see my correction did not display properly too.
The C chord goes over the; "up"
The G chord goes over the; "down"
Next C chord goes over the; "still"
And the G chord goes over the; "somehow"
