I was playing around with the sounds on my VG-8 and  
I'm pretty sure the basic patch for this song is the
Crystal patch (PA82), tuned as above.  It also sounds
very good with other guitar sounds. 

I think the song sounds right in this tuning.  It may 
or may not have been Joni's tuning, but it's possible 
to reproduce all of the chords and bass lines of the 
song (except for the special effects) with this one.  
I hope you like it!

Fret positions are in relation to the capo.

                                   When Emmy



May ran away she came back a bottle blonde - God!
The gossips had a gourmet feast
chomping on how she went wrong
But miracle of miracles ('cause we were under age)
she got us nearly front row seats
to the right side of the stage
See that tall girl - that's a man!
That one too... with the yellow feather fan
