The tuning for this is (low to high) : D A E G C E
or in Joni notation : D 7 7 3 5 4
(See 'joni_tunings' file for more about her notation)
Chord shapes used :
055555 777777 888000 555555 556555
Dm7 Em7/A Bb6/9-5 Dm7/G Gm11
333000 779977 002220 002020
Fmaj7sus2 A9 Dadd9 Dadd9add4

I still havn't convinced myself 100% whether she uses the Dm7/G chord
AND the Gm11 chord - they're almost identical. In fact I think she
just uses the simpler shape (i.e Dm7/G) - but if you like the variation
you can use both shapes.
I'm going to be lazy again and not write out all the words (I can't remember
many of them) - but I'll write out a few phrases I can remember so you
know where the changes come.
Here are the main progressions :

Intro :
Bb6/9-5 Em7/A Dadd9 Bb6/9-5 Em7/A
The outtro uses the same three chords repeating over and over.
Verse :
Dm7 Em7/A Bb6/9-5
The big man arrives disco dancers greet him
Dm7/G Bb6/9-5
Plain clothes cops greet him small town big man, fresh lipstick glistening
Dm7 Em7/A Bb6/9-5
Sophomore jive beating frantic and snowblind
Dm7/G Dadd9 Dadd9add4
Romantic and snowblind he says his crime belongs
Bb6/9-5 Em7/A
His eyes hold edith his left hand holds his right
Fmaj7sus2 Bb6/9-5 Em7/A A9 Em7/A A9
What does that hand desire that he grips it so tight

If I've mixed up words from several verses then forgive me !
As long as you see how the chords fit the words/tune then it
should be easy.

Enjoy !
