Note to editors: I submitted this a few days ago but then realized all the Ab6 
chords are actually Ab7. Below is the corrected version. Please replace the old 
one. Also why was Gb changed to F#? Please leave Gb as is, since it's more natural 
to see all flats in a song. THANKS!


I think these are pretty accurate chords. To play it like the Fiona track, pay 
attention to inversions. Enjoy!

[Note: Fdim7/Db can also be thought of as Db7(add9)]

Fiona Apple - Pale September


Ab7      Cdim   Ab7                              Cdim
Pale September, I wore the time like a dress that year
Ab7               Cdim   Ab7                           Cdim
The autumn days swung soft around me, like cotton on my skin
Ab7                Cdim     Ab7                              Cdim
But as the embers of the summer lost their breath and disappeared
Ab7                   Cdim     Ab7                            Cdim
My heart went cold and only hollow rhythms resounded from within
Fdim7          Fdim7/Db
But then he rose, brilliant as the moon in full
Fdim7                         Fdim7/Db
And sank in the burrows of my keep
    Gb     Absus4    Ebm7      Gb     Absus4   Ebm7
And all my armor falling down, in a pile at my feet
    Gb     Absus4  Ebm7     Absus4   Gb     Absus4    Ebm7
And my winter giving way to warm, as I'm singing him to sleep

Cdim
Ab7   Cdim   Ab7     Cdim
Ab7   Cdim   Ab7     Cdim

Ab7           Cdim    Ab7        Cdim
He goes along just as a water lily
Ab7           Cdim    Ab7                          Cdim
Gentle on the surface of his thoughts his body floats
Ab7      Cdim   Ab7                 Cdim
Unweighed down by passion or intensity
Ab7                Cdim   Ab7               Cdim
Yet unaware of the depth upon which he coasts
Fdim7      Fdim7/Db
And he finds a home in me
Fdim7                            Fdim7/Db
For what misfortune sows, he knows my touch will reap

    Gb        Absus4    Ebm7       Gb    Absus4   Ebm7
And all my armor falling down, in a pile at my feet
    Gb   Absus4    Ebm7   Absus4     Gb     Absus4   Ebm7
And my winter giving way to warm, as I'm singing him to sleep

Fdim7    Fdim7/Db   Fdim7    Fdim7/Db

Gb      Absus4    Ebm7     Gb     Absus4   Ebm7
All my armor falling down, in a pile at my feet
    Gb    Absus4    Ebm7   Absus4    Gb     Absus4   Ebm7
And my winter giving way to warm, as I'm singing him to sleep
 Gb        Absus4    Ebm7     Gb     Absus4 Ebm7
All my armor falling down, in a pile at my feet
    Gb   Absus4    Ebm7   Absus4     Gb     Absus4   Ebm7
And my winter giving way to warm, as I'm singing him to sleep

Gb   Absus4   Ebm7...  (repeat to the end)
