Big Yellow Taxi: words and music by Joni Mitchell
(original, 1970).

       Bb         Eb      Bb          Eb   Bb  F F6 F7 F6
1.They paved paradise and put up a parking lot,

F6     Bb        Eb  C              F        F6 F7 F6  F
With a pink hotel, a boutique and a swingin' hot spot.

       F                                F7
CHORUS:Don't it always seem to go, that you don't know what
                                 Bb       Eb
you've got 'till it's gone. They paved paradise and
C            C7  F
put up a parking lot.

2.They took all the trees and put them in a tree museum,

And they charged all the people a dollar and a half

just to see 'em.


3.Hey farmer, farmer, put away that DDT, now.

Give me spots on my apples but leave me the birds and the

bees. Please!


4.Late last night I heard the screen door slam,

And a big yellow taxi came and took away my old man.


The chords for the verses are the same and so it is for
the chorus.

Mitchell adds this at the end of the song:
F/F6/F7/F6 F    F6     F      F6  
Woo..........Pa.....pa.....pa.....pa..... (x5) then the

chorus is repeated with one more Woo

 pa.....pa.....pa.....pa... to finish.

A blast from the past from Kraziekhat!
