Big Yellow Taxi


by Joni Mitchell
( A - - - /    / B - - - /    / E - - - /    /    /    //)

They paved paradise and put up a parking lot
With a pink hotel, a boutique and a swinging hot spot

A - - - /    / E - - - /    / A - - - / B - - - / E - - - /    //

 C:	Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got til it's gone
They paved paradise and put up a parking lot

E - - - /    / A - - - / D - E - / A - - - / B - - - / E - - - /    /    /    //

They took all the trees and put 'em in a tree museum
And they charged all the people a dollar and a half just to see 'em

 C:	Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got til it's gone
They paved paradise and put up a parking lot

Hey farmer, farmer, put away that DDT now
Give me spots on my apples but leave me the birds and the bees (please!)

 C:	Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got til it's gone
They paved paradise and put up a parking lot

Late last night I heard the screen door slam
And a big yellow taxi took away my old man

 C:	Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got til it's gone
They paved paradise and put up a parking lot

 C:	Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got til it's gone
They paved paradise and put up a parking lot

 T:	They paved paradise and put up a parking lot (3x)

A - - - / B - - - / E - - - /   // (3x)
