    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
