Big Yellow Taxi

Joni Mitchell


C         

They paved paradise

                               G

And put up a parking lot

          C                  D

With a pink hotel, a boutique

           G

And a swinging hot spot

 

CHORUS:

                     D

Don’t it always seem to go

              C                         

That you don't know what you’ve got

          G

‘Til it's gone

         C

They paved paradise

       D                      G

And put up a parking lot

 

        C

They took all the trees

                                        G

And put them in a tree museum

                C

And they charged the people

    D                                G

A dollar and a half just to seem 'em

 

Chorus

 

C

Hey farmer, farmer

                         G

Put away that DDT now

               C

Give me spots on my apples

       D                                     G

But leave me the birds and the bees,  Please!

 

Chorus

 

C

Late last night

                                     G

I heard the screen door slam

          C

And a big yellow taxi

D                          G

Took away my old man

 

Chorus x2

 

         C

They paved paradise

       D                      G

And put up a parking lot

         C

They paved paradise

       D                      G

And put up a parking lot
