                  Ballade de Melody Nelson ( Serge Gainsbourg 1971 )


Transcribed by Jean-Marc Orliaguet
( jmo@fy.chalmers.se , http://fy.chalmers.se/~jmo )

Notes : The song is extremely more complex in harmony and rythm than
        it sounds.

        The time signature is a mixture of 3/4, 4/4 and 5/4,
        and it can be heard on the record that pieces of bars were pasted
        together, which makes it even more difficult to follow with the guitar.

        And the vocals ( in french ) usually start on the 2nd beat,
        in syncopated time ...

Lyrics :


Ca c'est l'histoire
De Melody Nelson
Qu'a part moi-meme personne
N'a jamais pris dans ses bras
Ca vous etonne
Mais c'est comme ca

Elle avait de l'amour
Pauvre Melody Nelson
Ouais, elle en avait des tonnes
Mais ses jours etaient comptes
Quatorze automnes
Et quinze etes

Un petit animal
Que cette Melody Nelson
Une adorable garconne
Et si delicieuse enfant
Que je n'ai con-
Nue qu'un instant.

Oh! Ma Melody
Ma Melody Nelson
Aimable petite conne
Tu etais la condition
Sine qua non
De ma raison
