C C               G G
Just before our love got lost, you said
Am Am
"I am as constant as a northern star, " and I said
Dm Dm
"Constantly in the darkness
G G
Where's that at?
G G G G
If you want me, I'll be in the bar"
C C G G
On the back of a cartoon coaster
Am Am
In the blue TV screen light
Dm Dm C C
I drew a map of Canada
C C G G Am Am
Oh, Canada
Dm Dm G G
With your face sketched on it twice

F F Em Em
Oh, you are in my blood like holy wine
F F
You taste so bitter
C C
And so sweet, oh
C C G G Am Am
I could drink a case of you darling, and I would
Dm Dm G G
Still be on my feet
G G C C
Oh, I would still be on my feet

C C G G Am Am
Oh, I am a lonely painter

I live in a box of paints
Dm Dm C C
I'm frightened by the devil
G G
And I'm drawn to those ones that ain't afraid

C C G G
I remember that time you told me, you said
Am Am
"Love is touching souls"
Dm Dm
Surely you touched mine, 'cause
C C G G Am Am
Part of you pours out of me
Dm Dm G G
In these lines from time to time


F F Em Em
Oh, you are in my blood like holy wine
F F
You taste so bitter
C C
And so sweet, oh
C C G G Am Am
I could drink a case of you darling, and I would
Dm Dm G G
Still be on my feet
G G C C
Oh, I would still be on my feet

C C
I met a woman
G G Am Am
She had a mouth like yours, she knew your life

She knew your devils and your deeds, and she said
Dm Dm C C
"Go to him, Stay with him if you can
G G
But be prepared to bleed"


F F Em Em
Oh, you are in my blood like holy wine
F F
You taste so bitter
C C
And so sweet, oh
C C G G Am Am
I could drink a case of you darling, and I would
Dm Dm G G
Still be on my feet
G G C C
Oh, I would still be on my feet

About this song

"A Case of You" is a song by Canadian singer-songwriter Joni Mitchell recorded for her 1971 album "Blue" with Mitchell playing Appalachian dulcimer accompanied by James Taylor on acoustic guitar. The line "I am as constant as a northern star" is an allusion to Caesar's "I am constant as the Northern Star" from the Shakespeare play Julius Caesar, while the quoted line "Love is touching souls" is inspired by the German poet Rainer Maria Rilke."A Case of You" was the B-side of the single release of the track "California".
