Stay In Touch

Guitar chords transcribed by Howard Wright
Tuning: CCEGCE   "Joni" Tuning: C124354

I've written out just the chord shapes, including the open strings that Joni plays 
during some of the chord changes. 



INTRO:
------

5555xx  00000x  44300x   0000xx


5555xx  00000x  4430xx   221000   0000xx


5555xx  000xxx  44300x   00000x


5555xx  000xxx  4430xx   221000   000000



VERSE 1:
--------

5555xx                    998000    

This is really something, people will be envious


4430xx               00000x       5555xx

But our roles aren't clear so we musn't rush


0000xx  5555xx                 998000    

Still, we're burning brightly, clinging like fire to fuel


4430xx             0000xx    5555xx    

I'm grinning like a fool



CHORUS:
-------

0000xx   5555xx   000000   44300x

Stay in touch


5555xx      000xxx  4430xx   221000   000000

We should stay   in touch


5555xx   000xxx   443000

  Oh!      Stay in touch


5555xx  000xxx  4430xx   221000   000000

            In touch


(Same chords for all verses and choruses)


VERSE 2:
--------

Part of this is permanent
Part of this is passing
So we must be loyal and wary
Not to give away too much
Til we build a firm foundation
And empty out old habits
Old habits


CHORUS:
-------

Stay in touch
We should stay in touch
Oh! Stay in touch
In touch


MIDDLE 8:
---------

     998000                11 11 10 0 0 0    

During times like these the wise are influential


        14 14 13 0 0 0    443000         5555xx

They can bear the imperfections they can keep the harmony


   998000          11 11 10 0 0 0    

No doubt about it, no doubt that's essential

 
14 14 13 0 0 0    443000                    5555xx

       No       doubt that's always been a tricky one for me, so



VERSE 3:
--------

We should just surrender
Let fate and duty shape us 
Let light hearts remake us
Let the worries hush
In the middle of this continent
In the middle of our time on Earth
We perceive one another


CHORUS:
-------

Stay in touch
We should stay in touch
Oh! Stay in touch
In touch
