The chord shapes are quite irregular and Joni, as ever, sometimes plays 000000 in between chords. Where you see a slash in between two chords, that indicates that they are quick successive chords. Listening to the track will obviously make things clearer. In the chord shapes below, A=10th fret, B= 11th fret C=12th fret Intro: 222020 979977 / 999700 222020 979977 222020 222020 222020 979977 / 999700 / 900700 1st Verse 777600 7A7777 I'm going to take you to 002200 000222 My special place 000222 777600 7A7777 It's a place that you like no-one else I know 002200 / 000222 Might appreciate 222020 X55400 I don't go there with anyone but 555400 You're my special case 779977 For my special place 555400 My special place.
