– Night in the City –
Joni Mitchell

A7 . D . A . A7 . D . A
. A7 .D . A4.A . . . A7 . . . . . . . D . . . . . A
Light up light up,   Light up your lazy blue eyes
D . . . . . . . .A . . . . . . .D . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . E
Moon's up night's up,  Taking the town by surprise
. A7 . D . . .A4. A . . . A7 . . . . . . D . . A
Night time night time,  Day left an hour ago
D . . .A . . . . . . .D . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . E
City light time,  Must you get ready so slow
. . . . . . . . . A . . . . . E . . . . . . . . . . A
There are places to come from and places to go

A . . . . . . . A4 . . . . . .E . . . . . A
Night in the city looks pretty to me
A . . . . . . . A4 . . . . . .E
Night in the city looks fine
A . . . . . . . . . A4 . . . . . E . . . . . A
Music comes spilling out into the street
A . . . . . . .A4 . . . . . E
Colors go flashing in time

Take off take off,  Take off your stay-at-home shoes
Break off shake off,  Chase off those stay-at-home blues
Stairway stairway,  Down to the crowds in the street
They go their way,  Looking for faces to greet
But we run on laughing with no one to meet

They say into your ear - ly   life    romance came,
Fj . . . . . . . A7 . G#7 . G7 . F#7 . . . .Fj
And in this heart   of   yours burned a flame,
Fj . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .Cj . . . G-
A flame that flickered one day and died away.

Fj . . . . . . . . . . . . C7 . B7 . Bb7 . A7 . . . . .Cj
Then, with dis - il - lu - sion deep in your eyes,
Fj . . . . . . . . . . . A7 . G#7 .G7 . F#7 . . . . . Fj
You learned that fools  in    love  soon grow wise.
Fj . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . C
The years have changed you somehow.  I see you now...

– The Sound of Music –
Rodgers and Hammerstein, rec by Julie Andrews

  . . . E . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Eb
The hills are alive  With the sound of music,
  . . . F#m . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . A . . B
With songs they have sung,  For a thousand years.

The hills fill my heart,  With the sound of music.

My heart wants to sing every song it hears.

E . . . . . . . . . . . . . A . . . . . . . . B . . . . . . . . E
My heart wants to beat like the wings of the birds that rise
E . . . . . . A . .B . . . E
From the lake to the trees.
E . . A . . . . . . . . . B . . . . . . . E
My heart wants to sigh like a chime that flies
E . . . . . F#m . . . . . . B
From a church on a breeze,
. . . A . . . . . . . B . . . . . . . . . E
To laugh like a brook when it trips and falls
E . . . . A . . .B . . . E
Over stones on its way,
. . C#m . . . . . . . . G#m
To sing through the night,
. . . . .C#m . . . . . F# . . . . . . B7
Like a lark who is learning to pray.

. .E . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Eb
I go to the hills when my heart is lonely.
. .F#m . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .A . . G-
I know I will hear what I heard before.

My heart will be blessed with the sound of music
. . . . . . . B . .B+ . E
And I’ll sing once more

Diamonds shining, dancing, dining w/ some man in a restaurant.
Fj . . . . . . . . G-
Is that all you really want?

No, Sophistica - ted    La - dy,   I know
Fj . . . . . . . . A7 . G#7 .G7 . F#7 . Fj
You miss the love  you   lost  long ago,
Fj . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .Cj
And when nobody is nigh, you cry.
