Free Man in Paris

  • Type: Song

I was a free man in Paris
I felt unfettered and alive
There was nobody calling me up for favors
And no one's future to decide
You know I'd go back there tomorrow
Joni Mitchell, Free Man in Paris

Free Man in Paris is a notable song written and performed by Canadian singer-songwriter Joni Mitchell. - AsNotedIn

I wrote that in Paris for David Geffen [president of Asylum Records], taking a lot of it from the things he said.... Another song about show business and the pressures. He didn't like it at the time. He begged me to take it off the record. I think he felt uncomfortable being shown in that light.
Joni Mitchell, Mojo Magazine, March 2019
