Joni Mitchell chords for Marcie

Guitar chords with lyrics

I am fairly sure I've got the chord shapes right or this one.....
however, the names are a different story altogether.
.....if someone could correct the mistakes I may have made
     in the names I'd appreciate it

Also, I'm leaving the right hand fingering for the player to
work out for him/herself....its fairly easy...basically arpeggio
style (with some strumming) and picked up easily by listening to the song

.....thanks to Howard Wright for the tuning
