Second verse same as the first:
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/m/mitchell_joni/jericho_crd.html ]
I'll try to keep myself open up to you
And approve your self-expression
I need that, too, I need your confidence, baby
And the gift of your extra time
In turn I'll give you mine, sweet darling
It's a rich exchange it seems to me
It's a warm arrangement

Bridge:

888|||

Anyone will tell you just how hard it is
            ||||||         ||||||  ||||||  ||||||

             Em7/A           A       G        A
To make and keep a friend

                ||||||
                ||2222
                ||||||

         ||||||
         ||7777
         ||||||
          G/A
When you just can no longer pretend
||||||
||3333
||||||
 Eb/F
That you're getting what you need
||||||
||5555
||||||
  F/G
Or you're giving out anything for them to grow and feed on
||||||  ||||||  ||||||  ||||||  ||||||  ||||||
||9999  ||99910 ||9999  ||99910 ||9999  ||99910

I'll try to keep myself open up to you
It gets easier and easier to do
Just like Jericho
Let these wall come tumbling down now
Let them fall right on the ground

Eb/F
Let all these dogs go running free
