Intro: Eb Ebmaj7 Cm Fm Bb Bb7

Eb                         Ebmaj7
Hold me close and hold me fast
The magic spells you cast
                  Fm  Bb
This is La Vie en ros-e

When you kiss me heaven sighs
And though I close my eyes
                Bbsus4 Bb7
I see La Vie en ros-e

Eb                         Ebmaj7
When you press me to your heart
I'm in a world apart
a world where roses bloom

Fm                        Eb
And when you speak angels sing from above
Fm                     Bb
Everyday words seem to turn into love songs

Eb                           Ebmaj7
Give your heart and soul to me
And life will always be
   Fm  Bb       Eb
La Vie en rose

  1. Post with strumming pattern plssss

  2. my fingers aren’t long enough :'(

  3. Does anyone know where to find the tabs that were here before? It has been changed and I really enjoyed playing the old version! Thanks!

  4. okay, but who’s gonna sing it in French :p

  5. +5

  6. Regarding Kris’s comment: It looks like this song is defaulting to a transposed version. If the song begins with anything other than G, zero out the transpose feature to get it in the original key.

  7. For some reason it seems to load automatically on transposed +2. To get it to normal just click transpose 0 at the top.

  8. What strum pattern do you use for this??

  9. KrisScoggin

    this doesnt sound should start out with G

  10. Camille Ramos

    I played the other version for my wedding and now it’s gone and I feel sad because I’ve forgotten that version. I loved the way it was before. This one confuses me.

  11. skye Wolden

    G Gmaj Em Am D seems to work better for me anyways

  12. rgalmazar

    What happened to the fingerstyle tabs? They used to be here, even had it bookmarked but its gone

  13. rileygeyerrr

    @micha.nadwodny THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!

  14. micah.nadwodny

    If you change the transpose then go back to 0 it’s really easy and sounds exactly the same. There is a glitch so you have to change the transpose then go back to 0

  15. The tabs changed!
    They were not like this before…they were better :/

  16. Thanks this is so beautiful song and chords.

  17. This song is by Louis Armstrong

    • Not writing my name

      I’m sure the person that wrote this knows that but, this is the version performed by Cristin Milioti an American actress that performed this in How I Met Your Mother

  18. Tonedeafparrot

    I’m pretty sure that there’s a D7 at the end of “…everyday words seem to turn into love songs”

  19. transpose +5 is easier and sounds reeeallly nice!

  20. KiddleKaroo

    Love this version!!!! Thanks for posting it.
