La Vie En Rose
Louis Armstrong

D, D,

D       D                 F#m7
Hold me close and hold me fast,
     F#m7            G
This magic spell you cast,
     G            Em7   A7
This is La Vie En Rose
Em       Em             A7
When you kiss me Heaven sighs,
    A7                Em
And though I close my eyes,
  Em7           G      D    Em7    A7
I see La Vie En Rose
D        D                F#m7
When you press me to your heart,
    F#m7        Em
I’m in a world apart,
  Em                G      G
A world where roses bloom

A7             A7            Em         D    D
  And when you speak, angels sing from above
Em        Em            F#m7 /
Every day words seem to      turn into love songs

D         D                 F#m7
Give your heart and soul to me,
    F#m7             G
And life will always be,
A7   Em7     D   F#m7   Em7    A7
  La Vie En Rose

D         D                 F#m7
Give your heart and soul to me,
    F#m7             G
And life will always be,
A7   Em     D    D
  La Vie En Rose

This is just my version; it probably wouldn't be considered traditional jazz 
chords. I like to use the following picking pattern throughout the whole song:

(With D chord for example)   
E --2-----------|
B --3-----------|
G --------3-----|
D -----0-----0--|
A --------------|
E --------------|

I played F#m7 as (x04222)
Please comment with questions or suggestions. :) ( I've uploaded an mp3 of this 
version for picking pattern reference.)

It's capo 5 if you want to play it in the same key as the mother from How I Met Your Mother. And I don't care if you like the show or not, this song is beautiful, and her rendition of it was as well. Here's links to her ukulele version:
