CACTUS TREE- Joni Mitchell

TUNING: D A D F# A D, capo 5th fret

D5 D5addC# Dsus4  D5 D5addD# Dsus4

D5                              Dsus4
There's a man who's been out sailing in a decade full of dreams
D5            Dsus4           Dsus2/G           D(2)
And he takes her to a schooner and he treats her like a queen
D5           Dsus4               D5               Dsus4
Bearing beads from California with their amber stones and green
Dsus4              D               Dsus4               D
He has called her from the harbor, he has kissed her with his freedom
Dsus4              D               Dsus4             Asus4
He has heard her off to starboard, in the breaking and the breathing
D     Dsus2/G        D5addC#   Dsus4       D   Dsus4 D
Of the water weeds,     while she's was busy being free

There's a man who's climbed a mountain and he's calling out her name
And he hopes her heart can hear three thousand miles, he calls again
He can think her there beside him, he can miss her just the same
He has missed her in the forest while he showed her all the flowers
And the branches sang the chorus as he climbed the scaley towers
Of a forest tree, while she was somewhere being free

There's a man who's sent a letter and he's waiting for reply
He has asked her of her travels, since the day they said goodbye
He writes "wish you were beside me, we can make it if we try"
He has seen her at the office, with her name on all his papers
Through the sharing of the profits he will find it hard to shake her

There's a lady in the city and she thinks she loves them all
There's the one who's thinking of her, there's the one who sometimes calls
There's the one who writes her letters with his facts and figures scrawl
She has brought them to her senses, they have laughed inside her laughter
Now she rallies her defenses, for she fears that one will ask her
For eternity, and she's so busy being free

There's a man who sends her medals, he is bleeding from the war
There's a jouster and a jester and a man who owns a store
There's a drummer and a dreamer, and you know there may be more
She will love them when she sees them, they will lose her if they follow
And she only means to please them and her heart is full and hollow
Like a cactus tree, while she's so busy being free

Like a cactus tree, being free
