Intro: B  Gb  Db

Gb
Midnight comes in
Ebm    Db
Paris and as
Gb
I light my cigarette
    Ebm              Db
The rain it hits my face
Gb
So I start walking
Ebm         Db
Toward the Ferris wheel
Gb
From my hotel on
Ebm        Db  
Champs-Élysées
    Bbm       Ebm  B
For now I am alone
        Bbm        Ebm  Db
I might always be alone

Chorus:
   B                       Gb
My heart is in the city of love
                    Db
But it's raining in Paris
B                       Gb
What good is a heart of gold
               Db
With nobody to share it with
            B                 Gb
It's coming down, it's coming down
   Ebm       Db      B
My head can hardly bare it
   B                       Db
My heart is in the city of love
                    B
But it's raining in Paris

Interlude: B  Gb  Db

Ebm        Db       Gb
So let it rain on me
       Ebm         Db
See my heart's on fire
      Gb
But I always got cold feet
Ebm         Db          B  Gb         Db
Love never really did anything for me
Ebm                       Db          Gb
Try telling that to this goddamn city
Ebm         Db            Gb
And if the storm should stop
    Ebm         Db             Gb
I'd ask you to dance on some cliche mountain top
Ebm         Db              B        Gb       Db
We'd share straws at your favorite coffee shop
    Ebm               Db
But life it ain't no romance novel

Chorus:
   B                       Gb
My heart is in the city of love
                    Db
But it's raining in Paris
B                       Gb
What good is a heart of gold
               Db
With nobody to share it with
            B                 Gb
It's coming down, it's coming down
   Ebm       Db      B
My head can hardly bare it
   B                       Db
My heart is in the city of love
                    B
But it's raining in Paris

Outro:
Gb
I met a man
    Ebm     Db
Who sold umbrellas
        Gb
and
         
just five dollars
      Ebm               Db
saved me from all that rain
    Bbm       Ebm  B
For now I am alone
          Bbm         Ebm  Db
I think I like being alone

  1. The Maine is Amazing Folks.

    I feel like the fact that this has no comments means that nobody knows this song and that people don’t know The Maine even though they’ve been around for 10 years. If you haven’t listened to them, go. now. Find them. And look for tickets cuz they’re like always on tour (and they do free meet-and-greets after shows)
    Btw, transpose +1 is a lot easier

    • I stinking LOVE The Maine!!!! Just started playing the uke and was so tickled to find out that they had songs on this site (albeit only 11 of their several gems).
