Big Yellow Taxi - Counting Crows  (Joni Mitchell) - tabbed by the chadster08012

NORMAL TUNING~~No need for wacked out tuning
CAPO FIRST FRET,*PINKY DOWN ON ALL D's

G BARRE                             OPEN G
They paved paradise and put up a parking lot
With a pink hotel, a boutique, and a swingin' hot spot
G,              D*
Don't it always seem to go 
       C9                                     G
That you don't know what you got 'til it's gone
C9                         D              G
They paved paradise and put up a parking lot
OPEN G                             BARRE G
Ooooh, bop bop bop,   Ooooh, bop bop bop
G-C9                                        C9-G
They took all the trees, and put em in a tree museum
G-C9                         C9-D                      D-G
And they charged the people a dollar and a half to see them
No, no, no
G                 D
Don't it always seem to go
       C9                                    G
That you don't know what you got 'til it's gone
C9                         D               G
They paved paradise, and put up a parking lot

Ooooh, bop bop bop,,      Ooooh, bop bop bop
C9                                 G
Hey farmer, farmer, put away your DDT
                    C9
I don't care about spots on my apples,
                            G
Leave me the birds and the bees
Please
G                 D
Don't it always seem to go
      C9                                    G
That you don't know what you got 'til it's gone
C9                                       D                   G
They paved paradise and put up a parking lot
         C9                       D               G
Hey now, they paved paradise to put up a parking lot
Why not?

Ooooh, bop bop bop,    Ooooh, bop bop bop
                                             G      Harmonic 5th
Listen, late last night, I heard the screen door slam
        C9             D             G
And a big yellow taxi took my girl away
G                 D
Don't it always seem to go
     C9                                      G
That you don't know what you got 'til it's gone
They paved paradise and put up a parking lot
Well, don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you got 'til it's gone
They paved paradise to put up a parking lot
Why not?
They paved paradise and put up a parking lot
Hey hey hey
Paved paradise and put up a parking lot

Ooooh, bop bop bop,    Ooooh, bop bop bop
         C9
I don't wanna give it
Why you wanna give it
                G
Why you wanna giving it all away
Hey, hey, hey
Now you wanna give it
I should wanna give it
Now you wanna giving it all away
