I DON'T KNOW WHERE I STAND - Joni Mitchell
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Terry (tabsntunings.com), finger-picking pattern transcribed by budtz38


Tuning: FFCGAc

First of, I found the tuning and most chords for this song on the excellent
website tabsntunings.com. Go there for

a couple of really great Joni Mitchell tabs. Personally though, it really helps me
to see the finger-picking

pattern as well, so I decided to transcribe it.

This will be your basic finger-picking pattern for the entire song. There are
minor variations, particularly when

it comes to the first half of the verses when you play the A chord diagramDadd9Dadd9 and A chord diagramCadd9Cadd9 chords,
so if you insist on playing it

excactly like Joni, you'll have to figure out those for yourself.

Sunny day, braiding wild flowers and leaves in my hair

Picked up a pencil and wrote 'I love you' in my finest hand

Wanted to send it but I don't know where I stand

Dadd9...
Telephone, even the sound of your voice is still new
All alone in California and talking to you
And feeling too foolish and strange to say the words that I had planned
I guess it's too early, 'cause I don't know where I stand.

Do do do do do do dooooo			do do do do do do do do do do do do

Dadd9...
Crickets call, courting their ladies in stardappled green
Thickets tall, until the morning comes up like a dream
All muted and misty, so drowsy now, I'll take what sleep I can
I know that I miss you but I don't know where I stand (2x)
