Trouble Child

Written by Joni Mitchell

	  		(intro) (Bb C Bb C Bb) 

D/C                   C 
Up  in the sterilized room 
Where they let you be lazy 
F7                             C 
Know-ing your attitudes are wrong 
And you gotta change, and itís not easy 

F7                               G 
Drag-ons shining with all values known 
F7                                G    F  G  C 
Daz-zling you, keeping you from your own 
F7                             C 
Where is the lion in you to de-fy him 
When youíre this weak and this spacey? 

So what are you gonna do about it 
C              Am7 
You canít live life and you canít leave it 
   F7                            C 
Ad-vice and religion you canít take it 
You canít seem to believe it 

    F7                       G 
The pea-cock is afraid to pa-rade 
       F7                      G  F  G  C 
Youíre un-der the thumb of a maid 
    F7                                  C 
You real-ly canít give love in this con-di-tion 
Still you know how you need it 

             C     G7/B 
Then open and close    you 
Then they talk like they know   you 
They donít know you 
                           C     G7/B 
Theyíre friends and theyíre foes too, trouble child, 
G/D                  Dsus4          G 
  Brea-king like the waves at Malibu 

(Bb C Bb C Bb) 

So why does it come as such a shock 
C                    Am7 
  To know you really have no one? 
F7                        C 
On-ly a river of changing fa-ces 
   Looking for an ocean 

     F7                          G 
They tric-kle through your leaky plans 
        F7                G  F  G 
Another dream over the dam 
C          F7 
And youíre ly-ing in some room 
                  C           Am7 
Feeling like your right to be hu-man 
Is going over too 

                  C    G7/B 
But some are gonna knock   you 
And someíll try and   clock you 
 You know itís really hard 
  C                 G7/B 
To talk sense to you,   trouble child 
G/D                  Dsus4         G 
   Breaking like the waves at Malibu 

(Bb C Bb C Bb)
