Words & Music by Michael Nesmith (later of The Monkees)
Recorded by Michael Nesmith & The First National Band, 1978


(G) C    C/B   Am7
Her name was Joanne

Am7/G    F    F/F#    G     G7    C    C/B  Am7  Am7/G   G7
And she lived in the meadow by a pond,

         C         C/B   Am7
And she touched me for a moment

 Am7/G  F         F/F#    G     G7           C    C/B  Am7  Am7/G  F  G7
With a look that spoke to me of her sweet love.

          Dm  Dm7       G    G7       C     C/B  Am7         
Then the woman that she was drove her on in desperation,

Am7/G  Dm  Dm7   G    G7      C      C/B  Am7
And I saw as she went a most hopeless situation

Am7/G  F           Fm7          G         G7             C
For Joanne and the man and the times that made them both run.


(G7)    C   C/B    Am7   Am7/G
She was on - ly a girl;

   F        F/F#        G      G7        C     C/B  Am7  Am7/G   Dm7   G7
I know that well, but still I could not see

         C    C/B       Am7
That the hold that she had

Am7/G      F              F/F#       G       C   C/B  Am7  Am7/G  Dm7   G7
Was much stronger than the love she felt for me.

    Dm  Dm7       G7          C      C/B    Am7
But stay-ing with her, and my little bit of wisdom

Am7/G  Dm  Dm7     G     G7   C      C/B       Am7
Broke down her desires like a light through a prism

Am7/G  F          Fm7          G        G7                C   C/B
Into yellows and blues and a tune that I could not have sung.


(Bridge:)

           Am         Am7     Dm       Dm+7    Dm7
Though the essence is gone, I have no tears to cry for her,

F             F7                 G
And my only thoughts of her are kind.



(Repeat first verse)
