[Capo on fret 1]
Tuning: EADGBE "Joni" Tuning: E55545
Intro: A9 A A9 D9 D D9 E E12 E14 E12 E A A4 E E12 E Willy is my child, he is my father A A4 A D D9 Bm I would be his lady all my life B E He says he’d love to live with me A D But for an ancient injury C#m Bm That has not healed E He said I feel once again F#m F#m12 F#m Like I gave my heart too soon E He stood looking thru the lace F#m At the face on the conquered moon C#m Bm And counting all the cars up the hill D E And the stars on my window sill D There are still more reasons why A I love him Willy is my joy, he is my sorrow Now he wants to run away and hide He says our love cannot be real He cannot hear the chapel’s pealing silver bells But you know it’s hard to tell When you’re in the spell if it’s wrong or if it’s real But you’re bound to lose If you let the blues get you scared to feel And I feel like I’m just being born Like a shiny light breaking in a storm There are so many reasons why I love him Willy is my child, he is my father
