    Well, here is a simple version of a guitar arrangement
of the song "A Rainy Night In Paris" from the album
"At Then End Of A Perfect Day" by Chris de Burgh.

    This original song features a piano and a saxophone.
This arrangement may be used as a main frame, without much
difficulty, to which you can add your own variations.

    If you're interested in CdB's songs, you can reach me
at PatnSoph@aol.com

    Have fun...

    Pat.

  The conclusion is a variation on the main theme.



It's a rainy night in Paris,
And the harbour lights are low.
He must leave his love in Paris
Before the winter snow.

On a lonely street in Paris,
He held her close to say
" We'll meet again in Paris
  When there are flowers on the Champs-Elysees. "

" How long " she said " How long,
  And will your love be strong ?
  When you're across the sea,
  Will your love remember me ? "

Then she gave him words to turn to
When the winter nights were long.
" Nous serons encore amoureux
  Avec les couleurs du printemps. "

" And then " she said " And then,
  Our love will grow again. "
Ah, but in her eyes he sees
Her words of love are only words to please.

And now the lights of Paris
Grow dim and fade away.
And I know by the light of Paris
I will never see her again.
