YOU TURN ME ON, I'M A RADIO- Joni Mitchell

TUNING: D A D F# A D  or  E B E G# B E

D(2) D(2) D5 D5addC# Dsus4  D(2) D(2) D5 D5addC# Dsus4

            D5                     D5addC3
If you're driving into town with a dark cloud above you
 Dsus4                    Dsus2/G
Dial in the number who's bound to love you
          D(2) D(2)  D          D(2) D(2) D
Oh honey you turn me on, I'm a radio
         D(2) D(2) D          D(2) D(2) D
I'm a country station, I'm a little bit corny
       G         (Gsus2/C)       (G)
I'm a wildwood flower waving for you
I'm a broadcasting tower waving for you

          D5                         A
And I'm sending you out this signal here
   D5                      A
I hope you can pick it up load and clear
             D(2) D(2)     D             D(2) D(2)  D
I know you don't like weak women you get bored so quick
         D(2) D(2)         D               D(2) D(2)     D
And you don't like strong women cos they're hip to your tricks
It's been dirty for dirty down the line
But you know I come when you whistle when you're loving and kind

(chords as above verse)
But if you've got too many doubts
If there's no good reception for me then tune me out
Cos honey who needs the static, it hurts the head
And you wind up cracking and the day goes dismal
>From "Breakfast Barney" to the sign-off prayer
What a sorry face you get to wear                       (stay on G)
I'm going to tell you again now if you're still listening there

            D5                      D5addC#
If you're driving into town with a dark cloud above you
 Dsus4                    Dsus2/G
Dial in the number who's bound to love you
            D5                         D5addC#
If you're lying on the beach with the transistor going
  Dsus4                            Dsus2/G
Kick off the sandflies honey the love's still flowing
         D5                            D5addC#
If your head says forget it but your heart's still smoking
  Dsus4                    Dsus2/G
Call me at the station the lines are open
D5 D5addC#  Dsus4 Dsus2/G
Doooo do do do              (rpt and fade)

    D  D5 D5addC# Dsus4 Dsus2/G G Gsus2/C  A  D(2)
D   0   0    0      0      0    5    5     7   4
A   0   0    0      0      0    5    5     7   0
F#  0   3    3      1      1    5    6     7   3
D   0   0    0      0      2    5    7     7   0
A   0   5    4      2      0    5    5     7   0
D   0   0    0      0      0    5    5     7   0

NOTE:  I know this as a kind of combo of the For the Roses and Miles of
Aisles versions.  On the Miles of Aisles version, the D(2) chord can be
heard as a kind of riff where you slide up from 000102 to 000304 real
quickly, play the open D for a second, slide up again and play the open D
again.  Listen to the record if this doesn't make sense.

Ima little confused about the different tunings and am always afraid to go there.
