PARIS – Joshua Kadison
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Kengus

Ok so I decided to go with capo on first, to try to make the chords as
simple as possible. Almost succeeded. What makes it tricky is the 
modulations in the song. Try these chords, see how they work for you.
Have fun.

Standard tuning
Capo on first fret!

INTRO
Cadd9  Am7  F  Dm7  G
Cadd9  Am7  F  Dm7  G

VERSE1
Cadd9                    Am7
 Ezra was an old man, he lived by the sea
F                             Dm7           G
Watching himself getting older, with no family
    Cadd9                      Am7
And Cassie was a pretty one, a bar tender by trade
F                                      Dm7              G
 She had a daughter with big green eyes, she called her Jade

PRE-CHORUS
Am                                       F
   They met each other in the park while Jade was on a swing
C                                     G
   On a bench underneath a tree, they talked about everything
             Am                          F
And she said, "Sometimes I get so scared, but I don't know why"
C                                   G
  She reached for the old man's hand and she began to cry
   Am G/B
And he said

CHORUS
C               G/B   Am             F
   "It ain't no crime,   it ain't no crime
C      G/B         Am       G F           G
  Everybody gets a little bit lonely sometimes
C              G/B   Am              F
   It ain't no crime,   it ain't no crime
C                  G          F
  Everybody gets a little bit lonely sometimes"

INTERLUDE
Cadd9  D

VERSE2
               D                               Bm7
Then he said, "I was gonna be a painter, gonna paint my masterpiece
  G                                            Em7       A
I spent my whole life dreamin', now they're my only memories
    D                                         Bm7
And I was gonna live in Paris, France, now my body's fallin' apart
            G                   Em7            A
I could be a Pablo Picasso if delusion were an art"

PRE-CHORUS
    Bm                            G
And she said, "That sounds lovely,  Paris, France
D                               A
   Just sayin' those words kinda  makes me wanna dance
Bm      Asus2/C#
  Do you wanna dance?"

CHORUS
D            Asus2/C#  Bm             G
   It ain't no crime,    it ain't no crime
D     Asus2/C#     Bm      A  G           A
  Everybody gets a little bit lonely sometimes
D            Asus2/C#  Bm             G
   It ain't no crime,    it ain't no crime
D                  A          G
  Everybody gets a little bit lonely sometimes

INTERLUDE
D  E

VERSE3
       E                          C#m
They'd meet there every Sunday in the park at noon
A                                 F#m            B
Ezra would get there early to buy Jade a red balloon
    E                              C#m
And Cassie'd tell him all about her awful luck with men, she'd say
A                                               F#m             B
  "Wish I could find a guy like you but they'll never make you again"

PRE-CHORUS
    C#m                               Asus2
And Jade would fall asleep on Ezra's lap there in the park
E                                   B               C#m  B/D#
  While Cassie'd still be talkin' a long time after dark

CHORUS
E    B/D# C#m     A
  Mmmmmmh,   mmmmmmh
E     B/D#        C#m     B  A           E
 Everybody gets a little bit lonely sometimes

BRIDGE
B                          C#m  
  One Sunday afternoon, no Ezra, no red balloon
       A                                    F#m
Just a friend of his who said, "Ezra passed away
       F#m                     G#m             A
And he wanted me to bring this letter to you today"
            B               C#m
Well, it was two tickets to Paris
      A               G#m                F#m
And a note that read, "Thank you for the dance
Amaj7               B                    A       B
 My dearest Cassie, you were my Paris, France"

CHORUS
E             B/D#  C#m             A
  It ain't no crime,    it ain't no crime
E     B/D#        C#m     B  A      B    E
 Everybody gets a little bit lonely sometimes.
