Lyrics With Chords

The life and experience of a songwriter like Janis Ian is forever woven into the fabric of her songs, and Janis has proven time and time again that what she feels and thinks and writes touches the hearts of those who listen.

We are providing lyric sheets with chord charts in PDF format from the list below. Please note that not all of Janis 400+ song catalogue is listed here. If you want actual charts with notation and such, you can buy one (or all) of our digital songbooks at our STORE.

Other sites would make you pay for all these features, but not us, because we like you. The idea is that you'll like these so much that you can't help but go to our STORE and buy the album or make a donation to the Pearl Foundation.

And now a word from our lawyers: All lyrics © copyright by Janis Ian/her co-writer(s) if any/their publisher(s). All rights reserved. Re-printing these lyrics for limited personal use is fine. Using these lyrics to make money is a violation of lots of laws; do not do that please! Permission to quote in books, magazines, etc. may be obtained via .
