                                  AIR - Left Bank
============================================================================
Album: Pocket Sympony
Written by Nicolas Godin & Jean-Benoit Dunckel

Tabbed by: Benoblest
Email:  Benoblest@gmail.com

Standard Tuning: EADGBE

Note:  I did not tab out the exact strumming patterns as a lot of it is improvised.  I 
only provide the chords/notes.  I also didn't tab the entire song because the same parts 
are used in the second half except for the outro.

Nicolas Godin: This is a song I wrote in a hotel room after a lovely weekend with a 
girl. And then Monday morning she left without saying a word and I wrote it on my guitar, 
very simple. Crazy French girls!
Jean-Benoit: Nicolas and I are always talking about this non-existent girl that we want 
to meet, that we’d like to have in our bed, the one who left, recently. In our minds we 
say to her, “come back I love you, I’ve been a naughty boy”. This is our obsession right now.

Two mistakes I made. These are the same notes, but the "correct" and easier way to voice them.

"I can't hold the sun" should go like this

E|------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------|
G|-----0-2-0/4-----------2p0--2-0-----|
D|---2---1-1/5---(5)-(5)-2p-2-2-2-----|
A|---2---2--/5---(5)-(5)-2--2-2-------|
E|-0-0-------0---(0)-(0)-0--0---------|

Also the outro chords should be played like so

Outro:

Chords (strummed)

E|------------------------|
B|--(0)-------------------|
G|---0----------6---------| Repeat
D|---2----------6---------|
A|---2----------4---------|
E|---0----------0---------|
