Intro: B Bmaj7 Abm Dbm Gb Gb7


B                         Bmaj7
Hold me close and hold me fast
                     Abm
The magic spells you cast
                  Dbm  Gb
This is La Vie en ros-e


                        Gb7
When you kiss me heaven sighs
                      Gb
And though I close my eyes
                Gbsus4 Gb7
I see La Vie en ros-e


B                         Bmaj7
When you press me to your heart
                Abm
I'm in a world apart
                    E
a world where roses bloom


Dbm                        B
And when you speak angels sing from above
Dbm                     Gb
Everyday words seem to turn into love songs


B                           Bmaj7
Give your heart and soul to me
                     E
And life will always be
   Dbm  Gb       B
La Vie en rose

  1. How would I play the part where its Am to D on “ros-e” with the ddu udu pattern? (I’m new to this)

    • i play the strumming pattern fast (2 d-d-u-u-d-u’s per chord), and that makes it pretty easy to switch between the two – you just play one set each.

      eg.
      “ro-” – Am, dduudu
      “-se” – D, dduudu

    • what I do is on Am I do ddu and on D I also do ddu. I personally find it easier and think it just sounds better than trying to rush dduudu into each chord.

    • i use that pattern for the rest, and in “rose” I do dd dd.
      So: Am- dd “roo”
      D- dd “oose”

  2. I actually love this so much. It sounds amazing. The only thing I don’t like it the Dsus4 which kinda sounds weird.

      intro: G, G

      G Gmaj
      quand il me prend dans ses bras
      Em
      il me parle tout bas
      Am D
      je vois la vie en ro-se
      G Gmaj
      il me dit des mots d’amour
      Em
      des mots de tous les jours
      Am D
      et ca-me fait quelque cho-se
      G Gmaj
      il est entre dans mon coeur
      Em
      une part de bonheur
      C
      dont je connais la cause
      Am D
      c’est lui pour moi, moi pour lui dans la vie
      Am G
      il me l’a dit l’a jure pour la vie
      G Gmaj
      et des que je l’aperçois
      C
      alors je sens en moi
      Am D G
      mon coeur qui bat

  4. I used -6 with a capo on the first fret

  5. love this

  6. I found ddu udu to work fine for me

    • Actually your almost correc the strumming pattern for HIMYM is DDUUD but it also works fine with DDUUDU
