Guitar chords with lyrics

Parting Gift by Fiona Apple
Album : Extraordinary Machine, 2005

Submitted by: Facundo M. Quiroga (facundoq86@hotmail.com)

The song is played with a piano, so don't expect much, and try to play with
the chords to make it sound right..

The A-E5-D5 in the 1st part could be something like this:
e|-----------------
A chord diagramBB|-----------------
A chord diagramG+G|-----------------
A chord diagramD MajorD|----6-----------
A chord diagramA augmentedA|---7---77-5---
A chord diagramE MajorE|-5---6----------

or

e|-----------------
A chord diagramBB|-----------------
A chord diagramG+G|-----------------
A chord diagramD MajorD|----6-----------
A chord diagramA augmentedA|---7---77-5---
A chord diagramE MajorE|-5---5----------

which sounds better than playing just plain chords.


Intro: Play the above twice -.-

I know it doesn't sound right in some parts, and the song probably has
more complex chords, but hey it's playable, and corrections/suggestions are
welcome.
Hope it helps.
