Artist: Joni Mitchell

Song: "A Case of You"

Album: Blue




   C    F     Am    G Am  F               Em          Dm  C 








     G  C  Am7     G  G  Am7 G G  G G     









C                     G/B

Just before our love got lost you said


"I am as constant as a northern star"

                  Dm                   C

And I said, "Constant in the darkness 


Where's that at?

Am7                                   G

If you want me I'll be in the bar" 

C                                  G/B

On the back of a cartoon coaster


In the blue TV screen light

Dm                     C

I drew a map of Canada

      C      C/B    Am7

Oh Ca  -  na  -  da

        Dm        C                    G/B

With your face sketched on it twice 




     F                                 Em

Oh, you’re in my blood like holy wine

Dm                      C  

You taste so bitter and so sweet 

    C                            C/B  Am7

Oh I could drink a case of you   and

Dm           C        G/B

Still I'd be on my feet

                (Intro Progression)

I'd still be on my feet 


C                         G/B

Oh I am a lonely painter


I live in a box of paints

Dm                             C

I'm frightened by the devil

             G/B                 Am7        G

And I'm drawn to those ones that ain't afraid

C                                           G/B

I remember that time that you told me, you said


"Love is touching souls" Surely you touched mine

           Dm                       C

’Cause part of you pours out of me

G/B        Am7                   G

In these lines from time to time 


C                                     G/B

I met a woman, she had a mouth like yours


She knew your life, she knew your devils and your deeds 

And she said 

Dm            C

"Go to him, stay with him if you can

 G/B        Am7        G

But be prepared to bleed"
