A Case of You (Joni Mitchell)

C F Am G Am, FF FF, EmEm EmEm, Dm CC, G2G2 C Am7 Am7 GG G Am7 G2G2 G2G2 gg
C                 G2
Just before our love got lost you said
Am7
I am as constant as a northern star and I said
Dm                  C                    G2
Constantly in the darkness, where's that at?
       Am7                    G

If you want me I'll be in the bar
       C                 G2
On the back of a cartoon coaster
Am7
In the blue TV screen light
Dm              C

I drew a map of Canada
    C    G2   Am7
Oh  Ca - na - da
Dm        C                   G2
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    G2 Am7
Oh, I could drink a case of you darling and I would
Dm       C     G2                              C

still be on my feet, oh I would still be on my feet

Oh I am a lonely painter
I live in a box of paints
I'm frightened by the devil
And I'm drawn to those ones that ain't afraid
I remember that time you told me, you said love is touching souls
Surely you touched mine 'cause
Part of you pours out of me
In these lines from time to time
Oh, you're in my blood like holy wine
Taste so bitter and so sweet
Oh, I could drink a case of you darling
Still I'd be on my feet
I would still be on my feet [intro progression]

I met a woman, she had a mouth like yours
She knew your lies
She knew your devils and your deeds, and she said
Go to him, stay with him if you can
But be prepared to bleed
Oh but you are in my blood, you're my holy wine
You're so bitter, baby
Bitter and so sweet
Oh I could drink a case of you darling
Still I'd be on my feet
I would still be on my feet [intro progression]

View Just Lyrics...

Just before our love got lost you said
I am as constant as a northern star and I said,
Constantly in the darkness
Where's that at?
If you want me I'll be in the bar

On the back of a cartoon coaster
In the blue TV screen light
I drew a map of Canada
Oh Canada
With your face sketched on it twice

Oh you are in my blood like holy wine
You taste so bitter
And so sweet oh
I could drink a case of you darling and I would
Still be on my feet
Oh I would still be on my feet

Oh I am a lonely painter
I live in a box of paints
I'm frightened by the devil
And I'm drawn to those ones that ain't afraid
I remember that time that you told me, you said
"Love is touching souls"
Surely you touched mine 'cause
Part of you pours out of me
In these lines from time to time

Oh you are in my blood like holy wine
You taste so bitter
And so sweet oh
I could drink a case of you darling
Still I'd be on my feet
I would still be on my feet

I met a woman
She had a mouth like yours, she knew your life
She knew your devils and your deeds and she said
"Go to him
stay with him if you can
But be prepared to bleed"

Oh but you are in my blood you're my holy wine
You're so bitter
bitter and so sweet oh
I could drink a case of you darling
Still I'd be on my feet
I would still be on my feet
hmm
