Joanne:Michael Nesmith (Formerly of The Monkees.)
This was a great song that made the Top 40 in 1970.

#1.  (Original key)
G   C        Am7        G   F            G
Her name was Joanne and she lived in the meadow
G7   C   Am7 F G
by a pond.
        C                Am7         G F
And she touched me for a moment with a look that 
         G     G7        C    Am7 F G
spoke to me of her sweet love.
         Dm    Dm7      G   G7        C             Am7
Then the woman that she was drove her on with desperation,
    G Dm   Dm7    G     G7     C            Am7
And I saw, as she went, a most hopeless situation,
    G F            Fm7          G          G7
for Joanne and the man, and the times that made 
them both run.

G   G7  C      Am7   F           Dm7       G
She was only a girl..I know that well, but still
G7          C   Am7 F G
I could not see.....
Am7      C             Am7     G    F        
That the hold that she had was much stronger than 
    Dm7      G        C   Am7 F G
the love she felt for me.
    Dm    Dm7      G7          C             Am7
But stay..ing with her, and my little bit of wisdom,
G     Dm   Dm7   G     G7     C               Am7
broke down her desires like a light through a prism,
  G  F           Fm7         G           G7
into yellows and blues and a tune that I could
not have sung.

           Am         Am7     Dm      Dm7
Though the essence is gone, I have no tears to 
cry for her.
F           F7                  G
And my only thoughts of her are kind.

    G F            Fm7         G          G7
For Joanne and the man and the times that made 
them both run.(x2)(Fade)

A seventies smash from Kraziekhat.
