JUST LIKE ME by: Joni Mitchell (as taught to Pat Boland) try this in DGDGBD. it's pretty simple: ('circle game' uses most of these chords as well) the primary chord, (0) of course, is just to play all strings open and that acts as your 'drone'... the second chord (1) is a C shape minus the ring finger and played/positioned on the first fret...the third chord (3) is the same shape but on the third fret and the refrain chord of the chorus is a straight bar on the fifth fret and, except for walking the bass A string, 0245, on the chorus that's all the chords, which, for tab purposes, we'll call 0, 1, 3 & 5 respectively and 0245 for the walk. 0 3 1 he's so independent, he acts like he couldn't 0 01010(hammer) care less for us all 0 3 he's someone's descendent, their child, 1 0 01010(hammer) though he'll never acknowledge their call 1 3 he's afraid to feel loved, yet I know 1 0...1 he's afraid not to be 0 and he'll laugh and he'll cry, and 1 0.. 1.. 0 someday he'll die, just like me cho: 0245-5 3..1 0 1 just like me, he's settling a score 0 1 3-1 with a world that wants a reason every time you turn around 0245-5 3..1 0 1 just like me, he's lookin' for a door 0 1 standing open, saying "welcome, come and lay your troubles down", 0..1..0-1-0 just like me if he'd drop his defenses, you'd see through the stone to the heart of the man but the moment he senses you've seen him he'll leave you, as fast as he can he'll return to his shadows where no one can look in and see and he'll wake in the night and cry like a child, just like me. cho. well, I've seen him looking for someone to tell him, "you're doin' just fine." and the songs that he sings, they have loneliness woven between every line there are no strings to hold him I guess you could call him so free yes, he's free to be lonely and empty and lost, just like me cho. 1.......0..1..0-1-0 repeat: just like me...
