These are the (easy) chords for Free Man in Paris (Joni's version anyway).
Free Man in Paris
=================
Words and Music by Joni Mitchell
A D
The way I see it he said, you just can't win it,
C G
Everybody's in it for their own gain; you can't please 'em all,
F A
There's always somebody putting you down,
D
I do my best and I do good business,
C
There's a lot of people asking for my time,
G
They're tryin' to get ahead;
F A
they're tryin' to be a good friend of mine,
Chorus
F
I was a free man in Paris,
G
I felt unfettered and alive,
C Asus4
There was nobody callin' me up for favours
A
and no-ones future to decide,
F
You know I'd go back there tomorrow
G C
but for the work I've taken on,
Asus4 D A
stokin' the star maker machinary behind the popular songs.
Instrumental bit ... (mix it about a bit!)
Em9 A Em9 A Em9 A
C D F C D G A C D F C D G A
Verse 2:
A D
I deal in dreamers and telephone screamers,
C G
Lately I wonder what I do it for; if I had my way,
F A
I'd just walk through those doors, and wan-der,
D
down the Champs Elysees;
C
going cafe to cabaret, thinking
G
how I'd feel when I find,
F A
that very good friend of mine
Chorus:
End instrumental bit ...
A C D F C D G A

Free Man in Paris - Joni Mitchell
----------------------------------------
tabbed by Howard Wright
[email protected]
Tuning : open D
From low to high that is - D A D F# A D
So you can leave your A and D strings - all the others go down either
a semitone or a tone.
NOTE: For the verse and chorus I'll just put down the chord shapes once
each time the chord changes. Check out the record for details on strumming

Repeat this last line once
(p=pull off)
Then play the intro again, and into the second verse
Verse 2
--------
I deal in dreamers and telephone screamers
lately I wonder what I do it for, if I had my way
I'd just walk out the door and wander
Down the Champs Elysees
Going cafe to cabaret
Wandering how I'd feel when I find that very good friend of mine
Chorus
------
repeat the last tab line of the chorus, as before, then go back
to the intro bit.
Play this four times, and that's it !
Howard
