| [D]   | [D]   | [A7]   | [D]   |

| [D] Ma jolie, how do you | do?
Mon nom est | [A7] Jean-Guy Thibault-Le- | [D] roux
| [D] I come from east of Gati- | neau
My name is | [A7] Jean-Guy, ma jo- | [D] lie

J'ai une mai- | [A7] son à La Fon- | taine
Where we will | [D] live if you marry | me
Une belle mai- | [A7] son à La Fon- | taine
Where we will | [Bm] live, you and | [G] me
Oh oh Lou- | [D] ise, oh oh oh | oh...
ma [A7] jolie Lou- | [D] ise   | [D↓]

Tous les matins au so- [D] leil
I would [A7] work, 'til work is done [D]
[D] Tous les matins au so- [D] leil
I did [A7]work 'til work is done [D]

And one [A7] day the foreman
Said "Jean- [D] Guy, we must let you go"
Et puis mon [A7] nom, y'est pas bon
At the [Bm] mill any- [G] more
Oh oh Lou- [D] ise, I'm losing my head,
I'm [A7] losing my [D] head   | [D↓]

My kids are small, four and [D] three
Et la bou- [A7] teille, she's mon a- [D] mi
[D] I drink the rhum 'til I can't [D] see
It hides the [A7] shame Louise does not [D] see

A carou- [A7] ssel turns in my head
And I can't [D] hide, oh no no no no,
And the [A7] rage turned in my head
And Lou- [Bm] ise, I struck her [G] down
Down on the [D] ground,
I'm losing my [A7] mind,
I'm losing my [D] mind   | [D↓]

En septembre 'soixante [D] trois
The kids are [A7] gone and so is Lou- [D] ise.
Ontario they did [D] go
Near la [A7] ville de Toron- [D] to

Now my [A7] tears they roll down
Tous les [D] jours, oh oh oh oh oh,
And I re- [A7] member the days
And the [Bm] promises that we [G] made
Oh Lou- [D] ise, ma jolie Louise,
ma [A7] jolie Lou- [D] ise
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh [D] oh...
oh oh [A7] oh... oh oh [D↓] oh

La Vie En Rose
Edith Piaf (Piaf, Louisguy, Monnot, 1947)


[G] Quand il me prend dans ses [Gmaj7] bras
Il me parle tout [G6] bas
Je vois la [Bbdim7] vie en [Am7] ro- [D7] se
[Am7] Il me dit des mots d'a- [D7] mour
Des mots de tous les [Am7] jours
Et [D7] ça me fait quelque [G] chose [D7]

[G] Il est entré dans mon [Gmaj7] coeur
Une part de bon- [G6] heur
Dont [G7] je connais la [C] cause
[Cm] C'est lui pour moi, moi pour [G] lui dans la vie
[A7] Il me l'a dit, l'a ju- [Am7] ré pour la [D7] vie

[G] Et dès que je l'aper- [Gmaj7] çois
Alors je sens en [Am7] moi
Mon [D7] coeur qui [G] bat [D7]

[G] Hold me close and hold me [Gmaj7] fast
The magic spells you [G6] cast
This is la [Bbdim7] vie en [Am7] ro- [D7] se
[Am7] When you kiss me heaven [D7] sighs
And though I close my [Am7] eyes
I [D7] see la vie en [G] rose  [D7]

[G] When you press me to your [Gmaj7] heart
I'm in a world a- [G6] part
A [G7] world where roses [C] bloom
[Cm] And when you speak angels [G] sing from above
[A7] Everyday words seem to [Am7] turn into [D7] love songs

[G] Give your heart and soul to [Gmaj7] me
And life will always [Am7] be
La [D7] vie en [G] rose

Autumn Leaves (Les feuilles mortes)
Standard (Kosma, Prevert, Mercer, 1945)
:Bm7b5:
Key of: Am

| [Am] | [Am]
The falling [Dm7] leaves [G7] drift by the [Cmaj7] window [C6]
The autumn [Bm7b5] leaves [E7] of red and [Am] gold [Am]
I see your [Dm7] lips [G7] the summer [Cmaj7] kisses [C6]
The sun-burned [Bm7b5] hands [E7] I used to [Am] hold [Am]

Since you [E7] went away, the days grow [Am] long [Am]
And soon I'll [G7] hear, old winter's [C] song [C]
But I [E7] miss you most of all, my [Am] darling [Am]
When [Dm7] autumn [E7] leaves start to [Am] fall [Am]

Instrumental Solo (optional)

C'est une chan- [Dm7] son, [G7] qui nous res- [Cmaj7] semble  [C6]      
Toi, tu m'ai- [Bm7b5] mais [E7] et je t'ai- [Am] mais  [Am]  
Et nous vivions [Dm7] tous [G7] les deux en- [Cmaj7] semble  [C6]  
Toi qui m'ai- [Bm7b5] mais, [E7] moi qui t'ai- [Am] mais   [Am]  

Mais la [E7] vie sépare ceux qui s'ai- [Am] ment  [Am]  
Tout douce- [G7] ment, sans faire de [C] bruit  [C]
Et la [E7] mer efface sur le [Am] sable   [E7]  
Les [Dm] pas des [E7] amants désu- [Am] nis. | [Am↓]
