Love Puts On A New Face

Guitar chords transcribed by Howard Wright
Tuning: CGEGCD   "Joni" Tuning: C79352

I've written out just the chord shapes in the usual format: the six numbers
are the fret numbers, with the lowest string position (C) on the left.

As usual, Joni uses the open strings during some chord changes to blend one
chord smoothly into the next - I've written out the most obvious open
string chords.


Intro:
------

Verse 1:
--------

He said "You think you're a lady but I know you're a woman


14 14 13 0 0 0          998000

We are as young as the night"


           14 14 13 0 0 0      998000

I said "No telephones ringing, no company coming


14 14 13 0 0 0                   998000

Just the lap of the lake and the firelight"


777777              998000   

And the lonely loon and the crescent moon


       5555xx    5565xx   555555

What a pocket of heavenly grace


555555                0xxxxx 222222

But in France they say everyday



Chorus:

  0 12 12 12 12 0         xx0000   998000

Love puts on a new face


777777   555555

Love has many faces


0 12 12 12 12 0    xx0000   998000


777777    555555    5565xx    5555xx


The chords are the same for all verses/choruses, except for the last
chorus (see below).


Verse 2:
--------

About a month or so later he said "Why can't you be happy
You make me feel helpless when you get this way"
I said "I'm up to my neck in alligators, jaws gnashing at me
Each one trying to pull a piece away"
Darling, you can't slay these beasts of prey
Some bad dreams even love can't erase
But in France they say
Everyday


Chorus:
-------

Love puts on a new face
Love has many faces


Verse 3:
--------

He said "I wish you were with me here, the leaves are electric
They burn on the river bank, countless heatless flames"
I said "Send me some pictures then and I'll paint pyrotechnic
Explosions of your autumn till we meet again
I miss your touch and your lips so much
I long for our next embrace"
But in France they say
Everyday 


Chorus:
-------

  0 12 12 12 12 0         xx0000   998000

Love puts on a new face

many many faces


0 12 12 12 12 0      xx0000   998000

Love puts on a new face
