			     I DON'T KNOW WHERE I STAND - Joni Mitchell
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Terry (tabsntunings.com), finger-picking pattern transcribed by budtz38
Email: budtz38@hotmail.com

Tuning: FFCGAc

First of, I found the tuning and most chords for this song on the excellent 
website tabsntunings.com. Go there for 

a couple of really great Joni Mitchell tabs. Personally though, it really helps me 
to see the finger-picking 

pattern as well, so I decided to transcribe it.

THE CHORDS:
 Bbm6      Gm  Fadd9(sus4) Dadd9    Cadd9      F7     Bbadd9   Am7
c|0--------0--------0--------9--------7--------0(3)-----5-------0(4)----------|
A|4--------1--------0(1)-----9--------7--------3--------5-------3------------|
G|0--------0--------0(2)-----9--------7--------2--------5-------0------------|
C|5--------2--------0--------9--------7--------3--------5-------4------------|
F|5--------2--------0--------9--------7--------0--------5-------4------------|
F|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Aadd9    Gadd9    Abadd9 
c|4--------2--------3--------------------------------------------------------|
A|4--------2--------3--------------------------------------------------------|
G|4--------2--------3--------------------------------------------------------|
C|4--------2--------3--------------------------------------------------------|
F|4--------2--------3--------------------------------------------------------|
F|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

FINGER-PATTERN:
  Bbm6            Gm              Fadd9(sus4)
c|----------0---------------0---------------0---------0----------------------|
A|4-----4-----4---1-----1---------1-----0---------0h1---0-----0--------------|

C|--4-----4---------2-----2---------0-----0---------------0------------------|
F|5-----5---------2-----2-----2---0-----0-----0---0-----0--------------------|
F|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
  1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & 1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & 1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & 1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & 

This will be your basic finger-picking pattern for the entire song. There are 
minor variations, particularly when 

it comes to the first half of the verses when you play the Dadd9 and Cadd9 chords, 
so if you insist on playing it 

excactly like Joni, you'll have to figure out those for yourself.

THE SONG (again, thanks go to tabsntunings.com):

Intro:	
Bbm6	Gm	Fadd9(sus4)
Bbm6	Gm	Fadd9(sus4)
Dadd9	Dadd9

Dadd9                                 Cadd9
Funny day, looking for laughter and finding it there
Dadd9                                  F7
Sunny day, braiding wild flowers and leaves in my hair
Bbadd9                                  Am7
Picked up a pencil and wrote 'I love you' in my finest hand
Bbm6                     Gm     Fadd9(sus4)
Wanted to send it but I don't know where I stand

Dadd9...
Telephone, even the sound of your voice is still new
All alone in California and talking to you
And feeling too foolish and strange to say the words that I had planned
I guess it's too early, 'cause I don't know where I stand.

Aadd9            Gadd9           Bbm6                Gm             Fadd9(sus4)
Do do do do do do dooooo			do do do do do do do do do do do do

Dadd9...
Crickets call, courting their ladies in stardappled green
Thickets tall, until the morning comes up like a dream
All muted and misty, so drowsy now, I'll take what sleep I can
I know that I miss you but I don't know where I stand (2x)

Aadd9      Gadd9              Bbm6      Gm      Fadd9(sus4)       Dadd9     Cadd9   Abadd9   Gadd9
   Do do do do do 				   do do do do do do doooooo
