Twisted- Joni Mitchell
Tabbed by Robin Young

A : 001010
B : 024242
D : 000212
D : 054555
Em : 022030
G : 0-10-9-10-10-10

           D                        G 
My analyst told me that I was right out of my head
              D                                            G 
The way he de-scribed it he said I’d be better dead than live
I didn’t listen to his jive
  D                              B 
I knew all along that he was all wrong
And I knew that he thought
A                     D        Bm    Em 
  I was crazy but I’m not, oh, no

A            D                        G 
  My analyst told me that I was right out of my head
He said I need treatment but I’m not that easily led
He said  I was the type that was most inclined
     D                                B 
When out of his sight to be out of my mind
And he thought I was nuts
A                        D    Bm    Em 
  No more ifs or ands or buts

     D                   G 
They say as a child I ap-peared
A little bit wild with all my cra-zy ideas
But I knew what was happening
I knew I  was a genius
D                            B 
  What’s so strange when you know
That you’re a wiz-ard at three?
A                               D   Bm    Em 
  I knew that this was meant to be

A       D 
  Now I heard little children
Were sup-posed to sleep tight
That’s why I got into the vodka one night
My parents got frantic, didn’t know what to do
But I saw some crazy scenes before I came to
B        Em 
  Now do you think I was crazy?
A                                D Bm  Em 
  I may have been only three but I was swingin’

A                     D 
  They all laughed at A. Graham Bell
  They all laughed at Edison
And also at Einstein
So why should I feel sorry if they just couldn’t understand
The idiomatic logic that went on in my head?

I had a brain, it was insane
Oh,   they used to laugh at me
     A                              D                   B 
When I refused to ride on all those double-decker buses
       Em                 A              D   G    A    B    Em 
All be-cause there was no dri-ver at the top

A            D                        G 
  My analyst told me that I was right out of my head
But I said, “Dear doc-tor, I think that it’s you instead
Because I  have got a thing that’s unique and new
   D                                      B 
To prove it I’ll have the last laugh on you
          Em                A         D 
‘Cause in-stead of one head,  I got two
And you know two heads are better than one”

I think that there are two items with which I slightly disagree:

1) I think A Graham Bell is actually Angry Young Men.

In the verse...Well I heard little children were supposed to sleep tight, I think the 1st G9 is omitted and the D7 / D9 carries on until .....my parents got frantic. However, great job and in the actual key.

This is correct - the lyric is "A. Graham Bell"

It's "Angry young men." I sing this song every saturday night on stage. Such a blast, too. Love the challenge.
Eveything else looks great though. Good job!
