Morning Morgantown

Guitar chords transcribed by Mia Ortlieb
[Capo on fret 2]
Tuning: DGDGBD   "Joni" Tuning: D57543

The “x02010” chord is a hammer-on chord (except one in the chorus). 
I am uncertain if they are all heard on the Ladies of the Canyon album. 
However, I did hear all of them on a live Second Frets Sets recording, 
so I decided to keep them in anyway. I also made a couple of minor 
corrections since my last post (Thanks Howard!).

A = 10th fret
C = 12th fret
D = 13th fret

Additional lyrics:

We’ll find a table in the shade
And sip our tea and lemonade
And watch the morning on parade
In morning, Morgantown

Ladies in their rainbow fashions
Colored stop and go lights flashing
We’ll wink at total strangers passing in
Morning, Morgantown
(Chorus)

I’d like to buy you everything
A wooden bird with painted wings
A window full of colored rings
In morning, Morgantown.

But the only thing I have to give
To make you smile, to win you with
Are all the mornings still to live
In morning, Morgantown.
(Chorus)
