About this tab version
Attempt at Jon Cozart's beautiful new song. The general structure is definitely correct, but some of the fancy chords might be slightly off.
Aadd9:
A|-2-
E|-0-
C|-1-
G|-2-

Also in general, any '6' and 'm9' chord can just be played as
a full barre over the fret

D6: 2nd fret, Eb6: 3rd, E6:4th Fret, Dm9:5th fret


The first picking bit just goes like this

A|-----0-----0-----|-----0-----0-----|
E|-----0-----0-----|-----2-----2-----|
C|---1-----1-------|---1-----1-------|
G|-----------------|-----------------|


[Intro]

A F#min

[Verse]

A                      F#min
At least I avoided cliche
A                               Ab        Ab7        
Holding nobody's hand along the Champs-Élysées
Dmaj7     
Taking my time
         Dm7
Breaking bread, sipping wine
          A    Aaug F#min Aaug
Meant for two

A                         F#min
It's a beautiful city for saps
    A                              Ab         Ab7
But turn out the lights, we're too clever for that

[Chorus]

Dmaj7       D6           E
And I know, I know we're not in love
    Dm                 A
But we'd fool this old town
         F#min       D                 E7
With the view of us, thoughts from the tourist
Dm     A Aaug F#min Aaug
Alone

A Aaug F#min Aaug A

[Verse]

A                                  F#min
We could fall for the streets of Paris
A                               Ab            Ab7
But the Eiffel's a joke and the punchline is me

[Chorus]

Dmaj7         D6             E
And you know, you know it's not funny
    Dm                 A
But we'd laugh till it was
         F#min      D                 E7
Just the two of us, thoughts from the tourist
Dm     A Aaug F#min Aaug
Alone

A Aaug  

F#min  A7
   And 
Dmaj7                Dm9
I know, I know that we tried
   E6         Eb6 D6              E
To survive on a   lie we couldn't endure
   Dm                 
So what's just one more
A                F#min    D             E7
Thought from the tourist, imagining the two of us
Dm     A Aaug F#min Aaug
Alone?


A Aaug F#min Aaug

End on Aadd9

thank you so much for posting this! I couldn't for the life of my figure out the chords by ear after the A and F#min, so cheers!

Transposing down -2 will work for more of a tenor or alto female voice :)
