Subject: For Free  The Byrds  Chords/Words

The Byrds  For Free  written by Joni Mitchell

G            Fmaj7      Em
I slept last night in a good hotel
       Am         C        F C
I went shopping today for jewels
    G           Fmaj7        Em
The wind rushed around  the dirty town
        Am           C             F C
And the children let out from the schools
      Am                  G
I was standing on a noisy corner
C               G       F Em D
Waiting for the walking green
G                    Fmaj7        Em
Across the street he stood and he played real good
       Am    C       F  C
On his clairinet for free

G D F C   G D F C

    G    Fmaj7    Em
Now me I play for fortune
          Am     C       F  C
And those velvet curtain calls
           G         Fmaj7     Em
I've got a black limousine and two ladies
  Am         C      F C
Escorting me to the halls
         Am                   G
And I'll play If you have the money
   C           G         F Em D
Or if you're a friend to me-ee-ee
G               Fmaj7       Em
But the one man band by the quick lunch stand
       Am           C        F C
He was playing real good for free

G D F C   G D F C

     G      Fmaj7      Em
Well Nobody stopped to hear him
          Am        C         F C
Though he played so sweet and high
         G           Fmaj7               Em
And they knew he had never been on their TV screen
        Am         C     F C
So they passed his music by
       Am                   G
Well I meant to go over and ask for a song
      C        G    F Em D
Maybe put on a harmony
G           Fmaj7          Em
I heard his refrain as the signal changed
              Am           C        F C  Em
He was  still playing real good for free
