I learned to play this song from watching a video of
a live performance, but I found out later that the
tuning I had used was not the tuning that Joni uses 
for the song.  However, I decided not to delete this
transcription because sometimes it is convenient and 
can sound almost the same to play one of her songs in 
another tuning.  

I think this song sounds nice in this tuning, and if 
you're already in this tuning because you've been 
playing Night Ride Home and Cherokee Louise, it's 
handy not to have to change tunings.  The chord 
shapes are very similar to those required for the 
correct tuning of CGEGCD (C79352) which you will find
in Howard's transcription.

Additional verses: 

About a month or so later he said 
Why can't you be happy? 
You make me feel helpless 
When you get this way 
I said I'm up to my neck in aligators 
Jaws gnashing at me 
Each one trying to pull 
A piece away 

Darlin' you can't slay 
These beasts of prey 
Some bad dreams even love can't erase 
But in France they say 
Every day love puts on a new face 
Love has many faces 
Many, many faces 
  

He said I wish you were with me here 
The leaves are electric 
They burn on the river bank 
Countless, heatless flames 
I said send me some pictures then 
And I'll paint pyrotechnic explosions of your autumn 
'til we meet again 

I miss your touch 
And your lips so much 
I long for our next embrace 
But in France they say 
Every day love puts on a new face 
Love puts on a new face 
Love has many faces 
Many, many faces
