Words & Music by Joni Mitchell, Recorded by Judy Collins, 1968 (#8)

Intro:    G        Am7       Em7        Am7

G                  C      G       Gmaj7              C       G
Bows and flows of angel hair, and ice cream castles in the air,
            G/F#    C    C/B           Am7                 D
And feather canyons everywhere—I've looked at clouds that way.
     G             C        G         Gmaj7            C    G
But now they only block the sun, they rain and snow on everyone.
         G/F#      C         C/B        Am7               D
So many things I would have done, but clouds got in the way.
      G                     C          G
I've looked at clouds from both sides now,
      C      G          C        G
From up and down, and still somehow
      Gmaj7   Am7     G   Em          C               D        G        
It's clouds illusions I recall; I really don't know clouds at all.

G                    C       G          Gmaj7         C        G
Moons and Junes and ferris wheels, the dizzy dancing way you feel
           G/F#  C           C/B          Am7                 D
When every fairy tale comes real — I've looked at love that way.
     G              C       G                  Gmaj7   C       G
But now it's just another show, you leave 'em laughing as you go,
            G/F#       C         C/B  Am7                       D
And if you care, don't let them know,    don't give yourself away.
       G                  C          G
I've looked at love from both sides now,
       C        G         C        G
From give and take, and still somehow,
     Gmaj7    Am7     G    Em      C                 D       G
It's love's illusions I recall; I really don't know love at all.

G                    C       G       Gmaj7             C         G
Tears and fears and feeling proud to say "I love you" right out loud;
           G/F#        C      C/B   Am7                           D
Dreams and schemes and circus crowds — 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 and say I've changed,
      G/F#       Em       C           C/B    Am7                   D
But something's lost and something's gained     from living every day.
 G                        C          G
I've looked at life from both sides now,
      C       G          C       G
From win and lose, and still somehow,
     Gmaj7   Am7      G    Em     C      C/B          D      G
It's life's illusions I recall; I really don't know life at all.
