Michelle Branch : Hotel Paper
Transcribed by Jerry Sun

The chords are off of the songbook, so it should match the recording. Key of A, 

not relative to capo.

Capo: 2nd fret

*(#11)
**I think the book uses the simple G form instead of [320033] because it sounds 

better (and not for beginners), because it uses [320033] in other songs.

Intro:
D -- D G(9) C G(9) D G(9) C G(9)

Verse 1 & 2:
D G  C         G(9)  Cmaj7  Cmaj7  G  Em9
I write mostly on hotel paper
D   G C           G(9)      Cmaj7    Cmaj7        G  Em9
Knowing  that my thoughts will never leave this room
D   G  C           G(9)        Cmaj7       Cmaj7  G  Em9
I'd be    out of line telling you, "leave her"
   D  G  C         G(9)       Cmaj7  Cmaj7  G  Em9
So I  lie   lonely surrounded by you

      D   G C  G(9)  Cmaj7  Cmaj7  G  Em9
...by you, oh

D   G C          G(9)      Cmaj7  Cmaj7  G  Em9
Lately,  I can't be happy for no one
D    G  C      G(9)      Cmaj7  Cmaj7  G  Em9
They think I need time to myself
D   G   C           G(9)    Cmaj7  Cmaj7  G  Em9
I'd try to smile but I can't remember
D G   C               G(9)       Cmaj7 Cmaj7  G  Em9
I know tomorrow there'll be nothing else,  oh

Chorus:
    D  Em7 C   G         D  Em7 C
And I,       I wanted to be
G          D Em7  C          G         D      Em7 C G
giving you e-very-thing that she's not giving
    D  Em7  C   G         D   Em7  C
And I,        I wanted to see
         G        Bm7        F#m7     G
'cause I didn't believe what I'd been hearin'

D  G  C  G(9)  D  G  C  G

-Verse 3- (just like verse 2)
You turned out to be more than I bargained for,
And I can tell that you need to get away.
Forgive me if I admit that I'd love to love you;
We both realized it way too late

Chorus:
    D  Em7 C   G         D  Em7 C
And I,       I wanted to be
G          D Em7  C          G         D      Em7 C G
giving you e-very-thing that she's not giving
    D  Em  C   G         D   Em7  C
And I,       I wanted to see
         G        Bm7        F#m7     G
'cause I didn't believe what I'd been hearin'

C/G  G

Asus                                         Cmaj7*
Maybe this wind blowin' in just came from the ocean.

D  G  C  G(9)  D  G  C  G

D                       Cmaj7
I write mostly on hotel paper
(end on G)

The last Cmaj7 sounds like it's strummed slowly like this:

e|-------------------------|
B|-------1---0-------------|
G|-----0-------------------|
D|---2---------------------|
A|-3-----------------------|
E|-------------------------|
