Blue On Blue

Guitar chords transcribed by Sue McNamara
Tuning: DADF#AD   "Joni" Tuning: D75435

Just the chords on this one, although the picking pattern is pretty.
You'll have to listen to the recording on the 2nd fret sets to get
it.  I love the recording when at the end Joni is singing "la da da
da da da da da" and Gordon Lightfoot says, "hey, you better answer
the phone!"  :-)

Dream a dream and wish me there

Gold on gold, sun in your hair
Spinning the rainbow, weaving the wind
Bluing the dye for the midnight air
Counting the gold at the rainbows end
Rapier princess whispers your name
Out of the time before I came
I'll never know
Gold on gold

Dreams like you are making now
Are very hard to share
All I ask is one small favor
Dream a dream and wish me there
