Come To The Sunshine

Guitar tablature transcribed by Sue McNamara
[Capo on fret 1]
Tuning: DADF#AD   "Joni" Tuning: D75435

Notation is numbered from the capo (1=fret2)

The first verse to this song bothers me.  The recording was so bad
that I couldn't make out the first couple of lines, so if anyone has
a better version than what's here (or better ears!) please email me
with corrections.  I guess I'm blind to the fact that Joni may have
written lyrics this bad.  !!

These are the basic chord/finger picking shapes.  I have not written
in every note, just enough to show you the ropes.  Listen to the tape
to get a better handle on how Joni maneuvers the bends and picking
patterns.

     When all the answers are so plainly showing

Repeat for next verse:

Teach me to tell you
All the feelings I've been learning
Tell me to teach you my heart
New words are crazy
Old love words keep returning
All words seem wrong from the start
So I will tell you with my eyes
Say with a kiss
Silence that asks no ifs or whys
And needs no answers on a day like this

Come to the sunshine
Share in the quiet of knowing
No need for telling you sometimes
When all the answers are
So plainly showing
