Try these chords--slightly different, but follow the melody a bit better. Four counts(one measure) between the slashes--play two downstrokes for each chord--

Paper Moon

Am7A#°/Bm7E7/A7D7/G G/


I think the words are approximately right--but I think the bridge should be"With out your love, life's a honky tonk parade, without you love,it's a melody played in a penny arcade", and the second to the last line, last verse, written, I have heard, by Dorothy Parker, should be"It's a Barnum and Bailey world, fake and phoney as it can be"--
