Notes:  

The fret positions are in relation to the capo.

I have given only the basic patterns.

Although this tuning and these chords work, 
there is probably a better tuning and an easier 
way to play this song.  Please let me know if you
figure out something easier, or come up with a
better tuning.

1st verse:


002120              x02242      002120    800890
L'Allemande used to visit me in Paris  in Paris


002120              x02242      002120     800890
I remember the      men I re-   member the houses in

   Paris


002120           500440      320100   2302xx
And he'd come in looking for comfort


x77650         800800          x70600       700898
Leave again    looking to the  left and the right


       x77997   x67886 
Did we see too  much


x77997   x67886 
Say too  little


870600                   202200
Stepping over every dark thing


870600                   202200
would it all be true     tomorrow


700898
But, he loves me

2nd verse:  same patterns as 1st verse


077650         099800    899800   700898       
I walk with my head held high and naked in the

3rd verse:

002120   x02242     002120     800890
I am the unchanging narrative, I don't resolve 


002120   x02242     002120    800890
neatly


002120       x02242    002120  800890
And I am the unchained melody, the current of the need 


002120   x02242     002120    800890
to survive


..... etc.
